Irene是labrador的一支新晋乐团，成员共有八人，据说都是在G?teborg（哥德堡）当地Pub里的朋友，由于 Tobias Isaksson这位同志创作了一些歌曲，就邀请其他朋友在pub里做了一个小型的Live,谁知做完后觉得不错，于是，几个人就组建了这支乐团，被labrador相中并发行了首张EP《Baby I Love Your Way》，作品以清新自然的POP风格呈现，尤其好使Ba-Ba-Ba 这几个字节，整张唱片几乎都能听到，莫不是瑞典现在正进行Ba-Ba-Ba潮流。这张唱片从Intro就想给大家呈现一种复古姿态，通篇也几乎是不费脑力的爱情小品。
Irene are roughly eleven Swedes that throw it all the way back to the early '60s with a sound that's like Frank Sinatra-meets-the-Shirelles. Heavy crooning by Bobby and sweet melodies from Nancy produce a charming dynamic over a happy, old school pop sound that's not cheesy, but definitely light-hearted. The fanfare and claps lift the mood throughout the album, and the two-minute songs fly by before you've even fully extended your grin. "Ba-da-da" and "du-du-du" in several songs do everything in their power to make this album feel good, and it certainly does. Apple Bay transports you back to your parents youth, as if these folks just stepped out of a time machine themselves.
Apple Bay kicks off with a quick shanty over ocean sounds, then jumps into the sun, like that one old Coca-Cola commercial. "Stardust" flourishes up a brass bouquet then taps through a fond recollection. "To Be With You" is one of those "I'll do anything" songs, and comes off with fun and sincerity. The entire album sounds as if you just ripped off someone at a garage sale and got a great dea .
"Cold Feet" is a loungy duet ("The sunlight kissed our feet/But you got cold feet") with a syllablic refrain that takes most seriousness out of the song, and replaces it with charm. "Baby I Love Your Way" bounces down the hill on piano jamming, trumpet flaring, and vocal cascading. "Summer's Gone" flows on sheepish "ba"s, and even in the dead of winter, it could convince you it's the last day of summer.
This is about as feel-good as an indie pop album gets, so sugary sweet that kids in the 1960's candyshops would get a cavity. The masculine vocals give the sound an extra edge, and the orchestration of all the instruments comes off genuinely. They've mastered the throwback pop sound as much as anyone out there
