It’s the duo’s intention to take us on a journey whilst we listen to the ethereal track of colourful proportions rooted amongst minimalistic electronic beats.

GRIP TIGHT – Never Enough

GRIP TIGHT

GRIP TIGHT

GRIP TIGHT is the electronic project of English producer Benjamin Gregory.

The video for ‘Never Enough’ is a smooth cinematic replica of the track. Robotic beats of 808 drum machines and the oscillations of synthesisers, with the vocals captured in the crypt of Kirche Luisenstadt, a Polish Church in Berlin.

The track – written about one night in two lovers’ lives – emerged in an apartment by a canal in Berlin’s Neukölln district – Gregory’s home for almost two years, and where he explored abandoned places for inspiration and recorded sounds to document this period of time in his life.

‘Never Enough’ is released June 24th through FEINT (cd, digital) and Musclemilk (cassette).

Sounds like: Kraftwerk, Joy Division, Arthur Russell

Amason – Went To War

Amason

Amason

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
