Gundelach – Fjernsynet

Gundelach by Simon Skreddernes

Gundelach by Simon Skredderne

Gundelach returns with his new single ‘Fjernsynet (Norwegian for “television set”), which is poised to lift him to new heights with its cooly delivered falsetto over a driving rhythm, accentuated by beautiful analog-electronic production.

It is a broody, melancholic and catchy slow burner, perfect to listen to when driving late at night.

The ‘Spiders’ EP is co-produced by Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta). It is mixed by Al Carson (Ariel Pink, Tim Hecker).

‘Fjernsynet’ was released on 8 April via Cosmos (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim). The EP is available for pre-order here.

Say Lou Lou – Nothing But A Heartbeat

Say Lou Lou

Say Lou Lou

To celebrate the release of Say Lou Lou‘s debut album, ‘Lucid Dreaming’, the sisters have revealed a short film encapsulating the essence of the album in its entirety.

The film, set to the band’s single ‘Nothing But A Heartbeat’, was devised by the band and directed by Joanna Nordahl (Lune, Ji Nilsson). Alongside the album body of work, inspiration has been sought from Lars Von Trier’s ‘Melancholia’, Hans Zimmer and ‘On Being Ill’ by Virginia Woolf while drawing parallels to religious ideology and exploration of mental sanity. The band appear in a dream-like state, surrealistic and boundless with abstract thoughts running free.

The band explain the idea; ”Dreams are a way for human minds to digest their memories, and this film is sort of a digestion of our experiences of these past years as Say Lou Lou.”

Watch the stunning short film below:

Lucid Dreaming is available now via À Deux/Cosmos Music and can be purchased on iTunes here.

Kid Astray – Still Chasing Nothing

Kid Astray – Still Chasing Nothing

Norwegian indiepop six-piece Kid Astray has released brand new single ‘Still Chasing Nothing’.

The catchy track is energetic and the heavier guitar interlude is something that we have not seen from Kid Astray before. I guess that is one of the benefits of having so many influences in one band!

We love these guys!

The track comes from the band’s forthcoming debut album titled ‘Home Before the Dark’, which will see a 2015 release via Cosmos.

Buy the track on iTunes here.

We last wrote about the Norweigen sextuplets, Kid Astray, back in April.

Their new track ‘Taking You With Me’ is a sure fire hit. The track starts off slow and heavy, but soon builds up into an alluring and romantic track.

This is one journey you want to go on.

Have a listen to the more upbeat Unicorn Kid remix below:

The EP is released via Cosmos Music Group on 23 June 2014 and will be available to purchase on iTunes. Kid Astray has also just signed to Coda Music Agency.

Kid Astray are an indie pop 6-piece from Oslo, Norway.

Following on from ‘The Mess’ (which was released in late 2012 and taken from the ‘Easily Led Astray‘ EP) is their latest single, ‘No Easy Way Out’. The track is catchy pop at its best, with shoegazing synths and guitar riffs that will leave you wanting more.

It is hard to believe that the troop have only recently left school.
