Polaroid Memories is the sophomore album and U.S. debut from Swedish band Urban Cone. The music is very sugary pop rock out of Sweden with bright synths and guitars, youthful energy. The album suffers from lyrics are a little repetitive, as well as not doing a lot to stand out from the pack of 80’s inspired “indie” pop rock bands that are all over Soundcloud. There are a couple of strong singles including “Come Back to Me” which features Tove Lo, another Swedish artist who has seen mainstream success in our country. But overall, it’s difficult to listen to an entire album of this stuff.
