Robyn’s Honey feels raw and incomplete, like a work in progress—and maybe that’s the point.
The song was first teased a year and a half ago during the end credits of an episode of HBO’s Girls.
Swedish singer Robyn dropped “Missing U,” her first solo single in eight years.
Nearly six months after the track made its premiere online, Robyn’s “Love Is Free” finally gets an official music video.
The mini-album feels like a bridge between Robyn 2.0 and an incarnation of the dance-pop icon we—and she—haven’t yet imagined.
Röyksopp and Robyn’s sounds share so much sonic DNA that their team-up is almost self-defeating.
The title track from Los Angeles producer Michael Diamond’s new EP is deceptively chill.
It would certainly be easy enough to capture this stutter-step courtship by filming its gorgeous leads against gorgeous Swedish backdrops and calling it a day.
The most obvious Reagan-era reference here is Ken Russell’s 1984 sex thriller Crimes of Passion.
Robyn’s Body Talk is one of the year’s finest, most progressive pop albums, but it’s also something of a minor letdown as a standalone project.
“Doncamatic” is a far cry from Plastic Beach’s grandiose kitchen-sink arrangements.
Body Talk Pt. 2 is further evidence that Robyn is still one of the most consistently innovative major-label pop artists working today.
Robyn has reached the point in her career where she’s no longer obligated to dust off her ‘90s hits.
The bulk of the album is comprised of stiff beats and in-your-face bluster that attempt to portray Robyn as more impenetrable machine than flesh-and-blood sweetheart.
Her second act is comprised of bucketfuls of well-earned praise from the indie sect and lots of love from metropolitan gays in the know.
Robyn is definitely a slow-burner, but it’s also everything pop music should be: provocative, poignant, inventive, and fun.
