Last time Norwegian electronica duo Röyksopp joined forces with Swedish pop vocalist Robyn, they went to earn a nomination for song of the year in our awards with ‘The Girl & The Robot’. Their Scandinavian connection is back, this time for a whole album and a tour that’s bound to be one of this festival season’s main highlights. ‘Do It’, the standout track of their advance EP tops our loop this week.
