Sans – “Inte ens natten”

December 19, 2012 at 5:08 pm


I have to turn the volume up quite a bit to be able hear anything when I start to listen to  Sans new album “Inte ens natten”. It’s almost like they deliverately have turned down the volume as a comment to all radio mastered music, where others try to push out as much volume as possible, hoping to shout down all other music. I’m met by a sound bordering to mono, which also takes some time getting used to, but when I finally get into the Sans world there’s a lot of beauty to discover here; poetic, beautiful lyrics in a dreamy, soft, shoegaze-like melodic pop. Personally I prefer when the sound pops out of the speakers enfolding me with it’s own atmosphere, instead of sounding from within a box, but at the same time Sans music feels so characteristic with this that it’s maybe an important part of their low-voiced music. Turn up the volume and listen for yourself in a couple of songs here below.

No Favours – “Hands & Hearts”

No Favours

Here’s an interesting new trio from Malmö, No Favours, that released the single “Hands & Hearts” a couple of weeks ago. It’s also one of the songs from the debut album, which will be released now in December. Nicely rough, garage-punkish with vibes of  Sonic Youth-rock and shoegaze. There are also a couple of earlier songs to listen to on their Bandcamp page.

Then Comes Silence

Then Comes Silence

Then Comes Silence, hailing from Stockholm, was formed earlier this year and released their debut album, “Then Comes Silence” during the Autumn. What brought the members together was the fascination for death, doom, spiritualism and corruption and also a predisposition towards noiserock, goth, shoegaze and psykadelia. And their music feels like a blend of all this, like if they made their own mixture of goth rock and psychadelia with a horror movie theme, and wrapped it in a big thick shoegaze blanket. Listen to a couple of songs here below.

First Love, Last Rites – “Charlot”

First Love, Last Rites

First Love, Last Rites, hailing from Umeå, is underway with a new album, “Wasted Hearts”, which will be available December 5th. A little more than a week ago they released the single “Charlot”, as a first glimpse of how the album will sound. I do recognize them from the debut album, with a dreamy, melodic shoegaze. At the same time they announce a sound where they lean a little less on the massive guitars and noise and more and more on melodie, that is more indie pop and less shoegaze, which can be scented in the single track.
