FORMATS: 7" Single [Limited Edition] [White Colour Vinyl] / Digital Single


SPEEDMARKET AVENUE, a Swedish group with a refined atmosphere, will prove to be, without a doubt, one of the most talked about musical references in 2008 for all POP lovers in capital letters.

In “Way Better Now” they leave a good mark of their roots, as an advance to their second album, titled “Way Better Now” as well. On one hand, the title song is electric and fast-paced, finished off with a glorious chorus, in a more distorted THE ESSEX GREEN kind of sound, while “The New Idea” emanates a certain air of the songs that Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood played, offering a more innocent facet of the group, yet elegant at the same time. Two songs produced by Jari Haapalainen (producer of ED HARCOURT, INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY, THE CONCRETES and CAMERA OBSCURA, among others) which gives us one of the best virtues of the group; their all-terrain inspiration covers multiple styles and sounds, but has always embraced the pop and melody flag. Groups such as THE AISLERS SET, THE LUCKSMITHS, LADYBUG TRANSISTOR guide us to their sound but SLOWDIVE, THE CURE and TREMBLING BLUE STARS do as well.

Track Name: Way Better Now
Is that the follower you’re so frightened of
Oh no I left him I’m way better now
Is that the mom you’re growing a copy of
Oh no I left her I’m way better now

Is that your symbol for a true friendship then
Oh no I left that I’m way better now
Is that your brother fighting for acceptance then
Oh no I left him I’m way better now

Regret the wait and see, I wasn’t sure, was it me
Radical decisions they require repeat
Turned out to be
The most accomplished one you left them all behind
Accomplished one you left them all behind

Is that the moral code you still care about
Oh no I left that I’m way better now
Is that the former love you’re concerned about
Oh no I left her/him I’m way better now
Track Name: The New Idea
Incapable of sharing you’re right
I know you’re not a talker you fight
Misconduct a shortcut to win
The hearts of those who not even think

Be as immature as you like
I know your depths I won’t even try
To show the parts that you haven’t found
Unreachable still always around
I’ll leave you today
So much for this bond

I wrote a piece for you to read
I got this new idea a seed
The movement is not supposed to be
Held back by your philosophy
The new idea

Perception is not reality, right
Responses to the outside but might
Tell you what was once is not now
You’re still too proud to ask yourself why
