CEO has COME out WITH a jam that is keeping it real for ME

i keep it real, i keep it real, i keep it real

♫ ceo – Come With Me

The problem with hearing “Come With Me” for the first time while watching the video is that the song gets framed as a creepy New England meets Pokemon nightmare. After finally forgetting the video’s imagery I was able to soak in the song’s true vibes as a glistening slice of buoyant summery acoustics. It’s now become a perfect anthem for these sticky-backed summer days as I close my eyes and imagine myself floating on a body of water somewhere (anywhere!). ceo is the solo project of Eric Berglund, a guy in a Swedish band called The Tough Alliance. I can’t draw you any comparisons to his other band but I can say that this is some serious catharsis for Eric, as digging through any of his press material or interviews will show you. Whatever inner turmoil the dude is working though it sounds good to me. I haven’t heard all of the 8 track debut, White Magic, but I’ve seen good reviews. Any TBE readers loving it?

    ooo thanks for posting another track from the album. I've only heard Everything is Gonna be Alright which I love love love.
    I wonder if the lack of good reviews is to do with people be overly familiar with his band The Tough Alliance ? hmmm thanks again!

    I don't know TTA either, keep meaning to track them down and have listen. Or perhaps I shall remain blissfully unaware …

    The tough alliance is awesome! Same balearic summer feeling as ceo mostly. interestingly mentioned from a Fader interview that winters in Sweden are about longing for summer, hence their most summery tropical songs were probably written during those intense winters truly capturing the bliss of all the wonderful things we love about summer untainted by the reality of it.
