The latest offering from Swedish hit-maker Elin Lanto (just because you may not have heard of her doesn’t mean she doesn’t make hits – don’t let Robyn block the rest of the talent from Sweden!) sounds like a Paris Hilton song written by Pat Benatar, but all in the best possible way.  The track can be summed up in one small word: CUTE.  “Tickles” is an electro pop rock song that would probably do well on US radio but will ultimately serve as another Swedish hit without making an impression on US soil.  Perhaps “Discotheque”, Lanto’s 2008 US release, wasn’t strong enough to warrant another shot in the States.  “Discotheque” in our humble opinions, was a great offering and so is “Tickles”.  Almighty gives the track a feel-good club vibe that would make excellent tea party fodder.  Elin Lanto proves to be yet another reason why Sweden is the place for excellent pop music…
