‘Ear Candy’: Marlene & Ji Nilsson Provide a Dreamy, Summery Dance-Pop Treat

Marlene Ji Nilsson Ear Candy

As far as I’m concerned, Marlene has never once led us astray.

From 2013’s “Bon Voyage” all the way up to “Next To Me” – objectively one of the best songs of 2017 – the under-the-radar Swedish Dream’s served up sumptuous pop for years.

She doesn’t come ’round that often, but whenever she does, she’s always got a delicious musical treat in tow – or, rather, ear candy.

“Ear Candy” is Marlene’s latest offering, a thumping, romantic collaboration co-penned and co-produced with fellow Swede singer-songwriter Ji Nilsson. (The two also teamed up on a great song called “There” a few months ago. Is this duo becoming an official thing? Not mad if so.)

The House-y track comes at just the right time for the sunny season, playing like the perfect addition to the poolside playlist or a romantic summer night’s soundtrack.

For fans of Marlene’s own “Next To Me” (or anything Marlene for that matter), Annie‘s A&R EP, and similar purveyors of dreamy, four-to-the-floor dance-pop, this treat is an instantly replay-friendly indulgence.

Love it when you sweet talk to me baby, it’s like ear candy…

“Ear Candy” was released on June 29. (iTunes)
