Listen: Zhala - "Aerobic Lambada"

23 January 2015, 09:57 | Written by Laurence Day

Swedish hypno-pop upstart Zhala has unveiled a brand new ditty called "Aerobic Lambada" on, and it's a belter.

A 'Lambada', for those who don't already know, is a Brazilian dance characterised by intimate, erotic movements performed with a partner; it's traditionally a couple's dance, and urban legend has it that performing the dance will cause pregnancy.

Zhala's version is built on cascading '80s dance beats, a bass throb reminiscent of Bloc Party's "Flux" and a vortex of sampled vox; it's sticky, dancefloor pop with lofty ambitions.

Zhala is signed to Robyn's Konnichiqa Records.
