Sweden - Full Moon 80 - 04/16/03
Lost Peoples Area
Buddaboys is a new group starring famous swedish singer Eva Dahlgren and her friends Mija and
Greta Folkesson. Dahlgren has a successful solos career, so her choice to be part of a group
seems a bit odd. Mija and Greta sang backup on one of Dahlgren's records in the nineties and
made quite an impression on her.
The result is more joyous than anything Dahlgren has done in a while. Mija and Greta are
accomplished musicans as well as singers and they show this here. "Do Me" is an upbeat song
about sex that uses disco elements well. "Skin to Skin" casts a critical eye on the current
media climate. Dahlgren's uniquely husky voice blends with the purer tones of the Folkesson
sisters to fabulous effect.
"Deep Waters" is a soulful, surging number with spellbinding harmonies. "Oops" makes fun of
little-girl singers like..well you can probably guess that from the title. "Replacing my brain
with a butt" sings Dahlgren. No doubt the butt is marked "dirrty".
Buddaboys are grown women and they make music accordingly. Mature, sophisticated but never
dull. They have made a very nice album.
