Susanne Sundfør – Among Us

Susanne Sundfør

Susanne Sundfør

Susanne Sundfør is a singer/songwriter from Norway.

Sundfør’s first release dates back to 2006, but it wasn’t until 2012 when she released a collaboration with the Norwegian electronica duo Röyksopp for their track, ‘Running to the Sea‘, that she became noticed outside Norway.

The soundtrack for the film ‘Oblivion’ (composed by M83) was released in April 2013 with the title song featuring Sundfør as the main vocalist.

In June 2013, Sundfør appeared on Maps‘ single ‘A.M.A’, and she is now working on her 6th album.

The Evan McNary-directed video for her new track, ‘Among Us’ follows a group of gypsy-esque ladies taking heroine, drinking milk, and being driven down the highway by some sort of cowboy. The video definitely has some dark 70s vibes in it. Close your eyes now if you’re easily displeased!

Amason – Went To War



Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow), Gustaf Ejstes (Dungen), Nils Törnqvist and Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), and Amanda Hollingby Matsson (Idiot Wind) form supergruppen Amason.

Despite the Swedish background, the band are situated in L.A. and are turning out to be the best supergroup of 2013.

Super catchy tune, ‘Went to War’, features on their debut EP, which was released on 28 August 2013 on Stockholm-based label/artist collective INGRID.

The track continues with the 70s synth rock theme prominent throughout the EP and we especially like the soft beats layered underneath the female/male vocal interplay, similar to that of fellow Swedes Peter Bjorn and John.

Citing influences from Kraftwerk, think of the group as a indietronica version of The Carpenters.

Sounds like: Peter Bjorn and John, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Carpenters, Miike Snow
