For all who's missing news from Salem al Fakir lately we've got a good and bad ones! Which one should we start from?
Ok, let's start from positive one - Salem's back with a new project Earpony and new single "Jag e frågan du e svaret" is already out. Earpony is Salem's duo with Pontus de Wolfe and at least lead vocal part on the first track belongs to him and here we start not that positive side of news.
"Jag e frågan du e svaret" is quite typical Swedish indie-pop of last years in a vein of Oskar Linnros or this year's Vincent's experiments and this idea was initially aimed for nothing but success, the problem is that Pontus' vocal either lacks proper charm and uniquness of Vincent's or Salem's voices or absolutely doesn't work with this sort of music. I do like melody and lyrics is quite catchy but it needs a full pack. Probably you'll have another opinion about new Earpony's song though, check it yourself.
