Its no surprise that Koops Come to Me graced an episode of Greys Anatomy earlier this year; the lilting cry for love is a breath of fresh air amid todays funereal indie rock. A sample-laden blend of jazzy swing and marimba beats, the queer Swedish duos latest, Koop Islands, calls to mind a buoyant Caribbean cruise or a twilight-bathed soiree at the Gatsby estate.

Bonus: Band mates Magnus Zingmark (left) and Oscar Simonsson (right) perform in makeup and skirts. Its uncommon to the jazz world because its so conservative and dominated by men, says Zingmark. The makeup gives us extra adrenaline.
