Smile Share New Single ‘Call My Name’ ft. Robyn

Smile, the project of Björn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John) and Joakim Åhlund (Teddybears, Caesars), have just shared their brand new single Call My Name, the latest single to be taken from their upcoming stufio album, Phantom Island, set to arrive on November 19th via Chimp Limbs/INGRID. 
For this song, the talented duo enlisted the help of Swedishh pop icon Robyn, whose distinctive vocals instantly take the song to a whole new level. Call My Name is a song about unconditional love, and the urge to do everything you can to protect the one you love. This message is wrapped around a polished indie/electro-pop production packed with ethereal synth-riffs nicely paired with catchy drums and bass that slowly intensify throughout the song. I am also very fond of the chorus which is perfect to sing along to and the hazy, shimmering background gives the song a warm, sun-soaked atmosphere that I find perfect for those relaxing weekends at home.

Speaking about the collaboration with Robyn, Joakim and Björn said,
We’ve had the song knocking about for quite some time, but when Robyn sang it, she really lifted it to another level, her vocal is just packed with so much emotion.
‘Call My Name’ is a quite simple song about unconditional love, and the will to try and protect the one you love from a chaotic and threatening outside world. Yes, I think in mine and Björn’s case, when we wrote the song we were both directing the words to a child, but I suppose one can imagine it being sung to a lover as well, or any person you feel strongly about.
