Another sensational artist from the blossoming music scene in Sweden, Yalmar has been gaining popularity recently with a stream of tongue-in-cheek, wonderfully vibrant pop singles that are purpose built for the modern generation.
After setting fire to the airwaves in his home country with the likes of ‘Stop Calling Me’ and ‘The Breakup’, two massive singles taken from his recently released EP, he’s now staking his claim on the international scene. Arriving with the third single from his acclaimed EP, Yalmar is celebrating the release of ‘I Need a Match’ a seminal track that comes complete with its very own music video.
An unabashed pop anthem that flickers with club energy and relentless energy, ‘I Need a Match’ is an 80’s infused cut that sets it’s sights on the current and inescapable power of apps like Tinder. At just over one-and-a-half minutes long, it’s a quickfire track of simple sounds and unyielding confidence.
Speaking on the new single, Yalmar explained, “When I wrote ‘I Need A Match’ I wanted to challenge myself and decided that it would contain only one chord. I have always liked the simple and repetitive music. When I come up with an idea that I like, it can be a beat or a bass walk, I usually turn on repeat and dance. If I get the right feeling I try to finish the song. ‘I Need A Match’ is about confirmation need and that people sometimes can be prepared to do almost anything in the search for ‘likes’ and ‘matches’.
