The Tough Alliance – New Chance

What a TUNE! This song has been one of my favs for many years now. The Tough Alliance are a Swedish electropop group formed by childhood friends Henning Fürst and Eric Berglund, who released three studio albums and 5 EPs between 2003 and 2009. They had solidly established themselves in Sweden’s indie scene but unfortunately announced their split late last year when Berglund decided to leave the band after months of speculation. He described The Tough Alliance as nothing more than a “stepping stone” in his career, as he’s now embarked on a solo endeavor, calling himself CEO. It’s a bit harsh, really. Bet that childhood friendship is on thin ice.

Check out his solo stuff here. It’s not good. Don’t quit your dayjob, Mr. Berglund! Oh wait, you already did.
