Let Robyn and Röyksopp teach you what a dance show should sound like
No need to dance on your own anymore, Robyn fans. The Swedish siren is making a rare visit to Toronto, this time alongside Norwegian electro duo Röyksopp, who are like Daft Punk, but Scandinavian. Following a few one-off collaborations (listen to a sample track right here), the two acts formally joined forces for Do It Again, the most critically celebrated 35 minutes of dance music this side of Random Access Memories. The tour to support the mini-album—a trio of synth-laced, club-ready bangers bookended by a pair of atmospheric 10-minute art-pop masterpieces—will see both acts take the stage separately before playing the new material together, so expect to hear some Robyn hits (“Call Your Girlfriend,” “With Every Heartbeat”) thrown into the mix. Also on the docket at Echo Beach: lasers, extreme outfits and over-the-top stage designs.
