Dreams of Dusk

August 15, 2008 at 12:03 am

It is said that one should remain impartial. Which I, from time to time, am not. At least not this time. The thing is that I know several of the members of Dreams of Dusk, and have furthermore been the drummer in the band. But that really doesn’t matter. ‘Cos I’m sure that I would have cheered them on even more if I didn’t know them or had once played with them.

Dreams of DuskDreams of Dusk was initiated 2000/2001 by their most diligent members, Alexandra Pajuluoma and Martin Berglund. No matter what, I am happy that my time behind the drums in the band did not last longer than some 6 months up to 2002. Or they would never have become as good as I think they are today. They would never have been as tight and great musicians had I still been in the band, that’s for sure.

Anyway. After several years’ gigging, composing and hard work they are still around. And they are, I would like to add, better than ever! So what makes Dreams of Dusk so good? I’m not sure. It certainly won’t matter that they are from Stockholm, that they are 7 members in the original line-up, or that they all are somewhere 28 and 38 years old.

Something that will matter a lot, however, and something that I have loved since the very start, is their mix of string instruments and rock parts. I may be naive or simply ignorant, but as far as I know they create a sound that I dare say that I haven’t heard anywhere else. That the vocals are extremely beautiful and the songs as such are superb doesn’t exactly make things worse. But… as what is commonly said under circumstances like these: listen and judge for yourself!

Delacroix

Delacroix

Well, it’s been a while since we heard Delacroix for the very first time. And for an unsigned band, they are extremely professional.
Last weekend the played the Peace& Love Festival in Borlänge, Sweden. And a week or so before that, they won the Music Award from Sveriges Radio Gävleborg (a local branch of Sweden’s Broacasting Corporation). The motivation from the jury was “This is a band with perfectionism and musical elegance present. They are like nailing each game in the football pools.”

They have currently released 1 song from their NMI Sessions and another one is on it’s way.

Frida Sundemo

An intense workday, where my brain was in charge, was coming to an end as I started browsing Myspace, listening to my favorite musicians. When I came to Frida Sundemo my brain finally came to rest and an inner peace took place. I’ve been listening to “End of day” and I feel happy.

Frida Sundemo is a Singer/Songwriter that has a very personal sound. With beautiful melodies, a touch of jazz and her soothing voice, she reaches into my soul.

Smile of a betrayer
