Whenever I listen to Röyksopp's music it always gives me goosebumps, so it should have come as no shock to me that the second I heard their new track Running To The Sea featuring Susanne Sundfør, the music immediately got under my skin and started voilently scratching underneath the surface. It also helped that Susanne's vocals are so damn emotional on this track and sent shivers up and down my spine. If this song doesn't make you want to start crying for no reason, then you have no soul.
I know I already did my list of best songs of 2012, but if I hadn't completed it Running To The Sea would be at the top of the list. There is no word if Running To The Sea will be on the next Röyksopp album, but if you like what you hear you can download it on their website or Norwegian iTunes.
As a bonus I also added the exquisite live performace as well.
