Man on a Mission

It's been over a year since I last checked in with Bobby and quelle surprise - it seems like they've split up again, this time supposedly for good. Julian Brandt, the mastermind behind Bobby, has seemingly moved on to try his luck at a  solo career; of course, it has, so far, made no whatsoever impact, but that doesn't really say anything about the quality of the music!



"State of Anxiety" was seemingly his first release as a solo artist, which is available as a free download on his website. He followed that up with the catchy number "Looks & Talent (Don't Always Go Together)" in March. This brings us to his latest release - "Love Can Turn Us Blind" featuring 2002 Big Brother winner Kitty.



While it hasn't garnered great reviews, I think they've been slightly unfair. It's a dreamy synth pop track that does what it sets out to do nicely. Which brings me to my other point - what the hell does Julian Brandt have to do to get any appreciation from all these scandipop bloggers?! It seems like unless you've got a vagina you go can kiss any type of blog hype goodbye. Maybe a shiny new cunt would at least bring him some success?

Nevertheless, both EPs are available on iTunes worldwide, so if you like it, buy it and support the independent.

Kitty has a face like a dog's arsehole but the song is quite nice. Unfortunately, it just sounds like every other track coming out of Scandinavia. However, as you say, that's never stopped the Scandipop bloggers having a circle jerk - so why not include this dude?
