MP3 At 3PM: jj

Swedish electro-pop duo jj is making waves. After accumulating a decent online following, the band leaked a new single from its upcoming fourth musical effort, aptly titled jj nº 4 (Secretly Canadian). “Beautiful Life” sounds sort of like its name; it’s breathless and airy, an enchanting spell of reverb and fairy dust. But the duo forgos pretty, sensitive musings for more hip-hop-inspired lyrics: “I’m in this bitch/Doing blow in this bitch.” From the get-go, the song’s gritty lyrics grab your attention and refuses to let go. Download “Beautiful Life” below.
