A little SXSW 2014 nostalgia here, where we pegged Swedish singer Tove Lo as "America's Next Sweetheart," and lo and behold it came true. But despite all of the buzz that surrounds her killer vocals, gorgeous face and the way that she can sing "love" and "fuck" seamlessly in a sentence, Tel Aviv electro duo The Young Professionals have matched her on their remix of "Talking Body," bringing their own brand of thumping electro beats and evocative synthy melodies to spice up her vocals.
But producer Johnny Goldstein and vocalist Ivri Lider specialize in re-works, having already added Tegan and Sara, Zedd, Lady Gaga and Lana del Rey to their roster, so in this case their name says it all. Not to say that they aren't well-versed in originals, as they recently exploded onto the US music scene with new single "All Of It But Me," featuring Austrian vocalist Anna F. With a full-length debut album to be released later this year, it's safe to say that we'll continue to hear TYP in connection with these name artists in 2015.
