Now back to a three-piece after the departure of Magnus Carlsson, and with a new female member in Lina Hedlund, it's good to know that pOp is still alive and well in Sweden in the form of Alcazar.
It's been four years since Alcazar's last Aussie release, "This Is The World We Live In", reached the top 40, and after a short break in their native homeland, they're back and more pOp than ever.
A new single, "Inhibition" is being belatedly released in Sweden on June 16, following the unexpected chart longevity of this, their previous single. They're also booked to play London's infamous G-A-Y club in early July.
No word on Aussie releases for these tracks at this stage. SonyBMG...? Any chance of a pOp lifeline??
