Just Wanna Belong is the debut single from new Swedish band Favorite Child who, having already flexed their muscles working behind the scenes with Erik Hassle, Tove Lo and Icona Pop, are pretty primed to launch their own brand of fresh, peppy pop.
Featuring guest vocals from fellow Swede Eric Rapp, Just Wanna Belong is an infectious electropop number, ready for the radio and reflecting the band’s self-described “rebel and mad scientist in perfect harmony” approach to creating music.
“We have an almost childish approach to putting songs together that really defines our style. As musicians, we reached the point where we no longer care about what’s expected from us. It’s part of ‘why don’t we try this, might sound cool?’ and part ‘fuck you we won’t do what you tell us’”.
Just Wanna Belong comes out in April.
