It’s Midsummer’s Eve in Sweden, so in celebration of that national holiday, Swedish indie pop duo jj dropped an EP called High Summer. It follows in the tradition of stuff like “Beautiful Life,” a song that imposes rap and pop conventions onto their blissful, hazy sound. The second song, “10,” samples The-Dream’s “Shorty Is Da Shit” for instance. Download it below.

Swedish group jj emerged in 2009 on the Gothenburg-based record label Sincerely Yours with a particularly gratifying take on the musical preoccupations common to much of the label’s roster, which includes its founders, The Tough Alliance. jj are distributed in North America by Secretly Canadian. The band consists of Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander.

jj’s take on neo-Balearic indie pop filters Air France’s tropical haze, The Tough Alliance’s penchant for slyly irreverent appropriation, and The Honeydrips’ fragile twee pop melodicism into a beguilingly lush, gently electronic style, reminiscent of prime Saint Etienne with a smoother, beachier sheen. jj also share their label mates’ propensity for mystery, favoring an artfully enigmatic presentation. Vocalist Elin Kastlander provides a distinguishing sonic hallmark in the form of her warm, lusciously smooth alto.

jj released their debut single jj n° 1 in early 2009. A couple of months later they released their debut album jj n° 2. Their third album, jj n° 3, was released on March 9, 2010.

In late 2010, jj released a mixtape called Kills. The first single from Kills, “Let Them,” sampled Akon’s “Right Now (Na Na Na).” The single also featured a B-side entitled “I’m The One/Money On My Mind” that samples “Intro” by The xx.
