Album Review

Like Toronto's Metric and Portland's the Blow, Sweden's Andrea Kellerman (aka Firefox AK) occupies a middle ground between D.I.Y. dance-pop and synth-driven, new wave-inspired indie rock. Her debut album, issued in Sweden in 2006 and picked up by Minty Fresh the following year, is flush with gleaming keyboard riffs and chunky programmed beats, but it also has a rocky grit that sets it apart from the pure pop likes of Robyn and Annie — it's telling that Kellerman initially wrote these tunes on guitar before enlisting Viktor Ginner (of synth pop duo Rupesh Cartel) to help dress them up electro-style. It's a tremendously satisfying fusion, if not a terribly innovative one, and when combined with Kellerman's top-notch pop songwriting and her striking, girlish but powerful voice, makes for an impressive debut showing that's comparable to plenty of other artists but still retains its own distinctive flavor. Her nine solid originals (along with an edgy, driving cover of "Habibi" by the Swedish electro-house act Assid) are sweet and upbeat but not breathlessly sugary, and at their best — as on "City to City" and "Who Can Act," with their harmonized chorus hooks, and the single "What's That Sound" — they're instantly catchy without feeling forced or fussy. [Minty Fresh's U.S. edition adds the B-sides "Harvey" and "The Polar Bear" as bonus tracks. Both versions of the album feature the videos for "Who Can Act" and "What's That Sound."] ~ K.

Customer Reviews

FIREFOX AK

A friend recommended this album to me and now I listen to it all the time! It's fun and upbeat, and it's easy to hear the Cat Power and The Knife influences. I heard she toured with Junior Boys- wish I had seen that!!

Pretty Little Blips

So this is a dance album, but don't expect monotonous beats and mindless, sugary words. Swedish solo artist Firefox AK has crafted something sincere, dark but not in a depressing way, and thoughtful but in no way passive. "Madame, Madame!" is a unique mixture of electric guitar rhythms and synthetic blips, squelches, and clanks topped off with Firefox AK's lovely voice. Ranging from sweet to detached to downright resentful, the lyrics guide the listener through real emotional journeys. This is dancefloor fare for the intelligent listener.

Excellent!

I heard several songs from this album when I was listening to Pandora station for Dragonette. I love all the songs from the album and I'm impressed with the variety. I don't often buy entire albums, but I am definitely getting this one.

Biography

Born: Sweden

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Andrea Kellerman spent four years in the London-based trip-hop collective Anamorphic before going solo as Firefox AK in 2004. She adopted the name "Firefox" when she saw the word printed on a fire hydrant; she later tagged on the letters "AK" when she realized that Mozilla had come out with a popular Internet browser that went by the same name. Having written some songs on an acoustic guitar, Kellerman hooked up with friend Viktor Ginner to turn those tunes into danceable electro-pop. "I wanted the...
