Swedish duo, EvilAstronaut, share the multicoloured video for ‘Seasons’.
It’s a little more electronic than their last single, ‘Orbit Berlin’, which fits more into the Bon Iver spectrum of things, but perhaps Evil Astronaut didn’t really know what direction ‘Seasons’ would take because at the time of filming the video in an empty reservoir, all that existed was lyrics and a vague idea of a sound.
It wasn’t until they saw the colours and reflections in the first cut, that they decided to change the song to fit the new vibe.
sir Was is the cool new musical project of Gothenburg-based Joel Wästberg.
A trained jazz saxophonist and a fan of sitting at home in his pajamas, Joel has made the brave move from the couch to record his own debut album, ‘Digging A Tunnel’, of which he recorded most of the instruments himself.
The Fredrik Egerstrand-directed video for his new track ‘In The Midst’, follows King sir Was explore an alternate world.
His album, ‘Digging A Tunnel’, is due out on 10 March via City Slang. Pre-order here.
Slowing down things with new track, Gothenburg sibling duo, Tracy Irve return with ‘To Mind’, a release composed of raw vocals and modest production.
Growing up surrounded by rock music (their father was in Swedish rock group Snowstorm), discovering a mutual love for acoustic pop and singer/songwriters, later working with Chris Stokes, and signing to (and subsequently separating from) label Silent Partner have all lead to this moment where the duo feel free to share their dark and downtempo electronic sound.
Emmecosta is a Gothenburg based post-club trio comprised of Claudio, Alfonso, and Aldo.
Both Claudio and Alfonso are from Positano and grew up playing music together. Aldo is from Milan and moved to Sweden to study Anthropology of Art. The trio met and started making music.
In their own words they describe their music as alternative dream pop that “celebrates intimate landscapes through a melancholic stream that merges with dreamy vocal narratives.”
“When it comes to songwriting, or sound writing, we start from a small detail; a single piece of a huge puzzle, which is something dear to us. Then we build en epic scenario that evokes the truth of this modest little detail.”
Watch the video for ‘Brontos’ below. It has been co-directed by Jeremy Carne and Nikolas Kasinos, and showcases the dreamy soundscapes, urban beats and nordic coolness of Emmecosta.
Their upcoming debut EP ‘UNTIED’ will be out soon.
