Swedish indie/electro duo Papercut has posted a few new tracks: http://www.myspace.com/musicbypapercut
Papercut is Erik Berglund and Ulrica Brunner, two beautiful young people who apparently grew tall on milk, cupcakes and synthpop. At the tender age of 9, Ulrica bought her first CD, "Dance vol. 1", and apparently it's been a strong influence ever since. A keyboardist in Firefox AK, her new collaboration with Erik has resulted in some simple electro-pop with vocals eerily reminiscent of St Etienne. This three-song demo includes the atmospheric "Time" and the more poppy "Adrian", both of which are ripe for remix to become club anthems. Until then, the perfect accompaniment to a stroll around Borders.

Swedish electropop duo Papercut has posted two new songs on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/musicbypapercut
Even though I know I should probably sick to death of it by now, I somehow keep finding new Swedish electropop artists to talk about. Of the three songs on Papercut's demo, the first track "Time" is by far my favorite. The sound is fairly typical: arpeggiated keyboards over a pounding 4/4 bass drum-heavy beat 'cept that Papercut layers on pink noise and buries the vocals into the mix giving the song more of an ambient, drifting feel. It's nothing groundbreaking obviously, but I like it just the same. The other two songs (which can be heard at myspace) are more standard electropop and far more vocal-centric. They're okay, but the mixes need more work to make everything blend better. Seeing as how this is their very first public recording, I'm sure they'll only get better.
