Prince of Assyria

The Litsos – “Guidance”

The Litsos have released their second song in their single trilogy. It’s called “Guidance”, and is also a child of the eighties’ new wave era, and I’d say that Echo and the Bunnymen is not far away from this sound.

Prince of Assyria – “Bring Along Joy”

Ninos Dankha was born in Iraque, but came to Sweden with his parents when he was only one years old and then grew up in Linköping. As an artist he calls himself Prince of Assyria and is on his way of releasing his second album “Changing Places”, after a five year long break. The song “Bring Along Joy” is a first taste of the album, a melancholic singer/songwriter-track which reminds me a bit of Junip in the ambience. “Annika” is another song of his, which was released last year, and it’s so beautiful that I just had to add that one too.

Center of Attention – “Dancing In the Rain”

Center of Attention is a newly formed band from Stockholm. They write that they have worked behind other artists before, like Veronica Maggio and Erik Saade, and performed in musicals like “Kristina from Duvemåla” and “Rock of Ages”. Their own musical influences seem to come from other directions, though, to judge from their debut single “Dancing In the Rain”. Scissor Sisters, The Killers and disco influences from the eighties come to mind when I listen to this catchy rock/pop track.

Peacock Farm – New EP

The psychadelia-inspired Peacock Farm, whom I wrote about last month, released the EP they announced before. And the four songs on the EP doesn’t dissappoint me at all, considering the expectations I had after last month’s “Monogram (Plum Run)“. A great EP with music I’d like to hear more of.

Danmarck – “don’t mean in don’t mean out”

And finally Danmarck with a video follow-up to the last one “neat neat neat“. Rock. High volume is recommended.


The Litsos – “Dance Like Children”

The Litsos

I have presented The Litsos here before as a duo. They have now grown to a five membered band, though, and have moved their base of operations from the north of Sweden to Göteborg. And they have grown with their music and their productions as well, here with the single “Dance Like Children”, the first one in a series of three. The inspiration still comes from the eighties’ New Wave and postpunk scene, but it’s starting to sound more and more like The Litsos than like anything else.

The Litsos – “Daylight Saving EP”

The Litsos

About a year ago I Wrote about The Litsos. The band has now released their second EP “Daylight Saving EP”, an EP where they explore some new directions with their music. On a couple of tracks I recognise them well from before with their new wave and post punkish The Cure-influences, while they on the wonderful melancholic ballad “Never, at All” follow a somwhat different path, or in the finishing song, the beautiful acoustic “Mourning Glory”, where they open the curtain to a different atmosphere, like if they woke up one morning and were inspired by the first serene sunlight.

The Litsos

It’s hard not to think of The Cure when you listen to The Litsos‘ songs. The singer Tove Sandström’s voice also reminds me a lot of a young Robert Smith in the way of singing. Comparisons aside, I think The Litsos manage quite well to stand on their own , foremost through a creative and good songwriting. Listen here below for a sample and if you’d like to listen more you can visit their page on Reverbnation or their Facebook page.
