Despite having one of the finest pop songs of the past year in his arsenal, mop-haired Swede Erik Hassle has, as yet, failed to permeate the public consciousness on these shores.
His debut album, 'Pieces', has just been released here but, sadly, seems fated to go criminally unnoticed. On the plus side, the UK (and, ahem, Irish) release features two brand new tracks.
One of these is the slightly cheesy but entirely listenable 'Standing Where You Left Me'.
You can get a free download of the Dada Life Remix of 'Hurtful' here, alhough I still kinda prefer the Penguin Prison remix.
