Quotes around The Magnettes
Perez Hilton
“The Swedish duo is very reminiscent of fellow Swedish duo Icona Pop, whom we love.”

Beehive Candy
The pop hooks grab you, whilst the punk overtones give the song some real edge. All of which makes the debut album something to look forward to.

The 405
'Killers In A Ghost Town,' is a black-hearted love song and call to arms for every bored teenage girl who's outgrown her small town's offerings.

Drowned in sound
Swedish pop sensations The Magnettes, whose fast paced electro pop owes as much to Abba and Roxette as it does leftfield artists Ladytron or Surfer Rosa.

Galore Magazine
Besides being called “Glitter Punk,” The Magnettes prefer to be more accurately described as “21st Century Fuck-Pop,” a genre we are more than willing to be down with.

Pop Crush
With its glittery, sparkling production and peppy synths, the track is reflective of all that shiny, projected magic, with some deceptively dirty lyrics thrown in
