Nicole Sabouné – “Unseen Footage From A Forthcoming Funeral” – video

November 23, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Here’s the debut single from Nicole Sabouné in a video created by Mats Udd. Great song with a Sisters of Mercy-dark ambience but with a sound that rather reminds of the end of the seventies/beginning of the eighties. Nicole makes a great performance here with low tones that haven’t been heard since the days of Amanda Lear and shows a strong expression and an impressive vocal registry.

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.

Le Muhr – “Flickorna på klubben”

Le Muhr

It took the band Le Muhr five years to launch a follow-up to the debut album from 2007, “Generation destruktiv”. The EP “Flickorna på klubben” with it’s six tracks was released in the beginning of this year and feels like a kajal painted soundtrack to the big city’s decadent night life, viewed with cynical and ironic eyes. There’s a lot of the eighties in their synth-punk-new wave and the contents would probably have worked just as good back then as it works today.

Long Long Showers

The five-membered band Long Long Showers comes from Malmö and have so far released a self-titled album and they are underway with the release of a new EP. It’s a pleasantly messy alternative rock they show us, with a singer with his very own expression. Even though it’s possible to find references to other indie rock bands of today, my thoughts goes mostly to British rock and new wave from the early eighties. Listen for yourself below in a couple of songs.

This Vision – “The Golden Age We Lost”

September 17, 2012 at 4:08 pm

This Vision

In spring I presented This Vision‘s single “20th Century”. The song was a first taste of the upcoming album “The Golden Age We Lost”, which was also released later in Spring. Compared to their debut album from 2009, quite a few things has happened with their songs and their sound.

We’re still in the eighties’ new wave-scene, with big rooms , analogue synth sounds and melancholy. But there’s more air, it’s warmer and more mature. They have managed to create a romantic, dreamy, retrospective feeling of the eighties, which I think many of us who grew up then recognise. It’s  an atmospheric album with a soft tranquility in it which you can sink into and enjoy from the first to the last song without getting tired of .

Here below you’ll find the first song, “Ashes”, the second single from the album, and also the music video to the first single, “20th Century”.
