The time is finally here to say that Solander is back with their third album Monochromatic Memories in January 2014. First out is the single All Opportunities, to be released November 25th! The album was recorded in Stockholm with producer Christian Gabel (bob hund, Ane Brun, Thåström, a.o) earlier this year. It’s a landscape of sounds, more sounds, vibrant cello loops, vintage synthesizers, driven drums, vocals and lyrics that hits and touches in under every part of you. Solander have managed to develop and expand their songwriting during all of their albums. You can truly feel the creative happiness, power, the scars from the mourning, but the light is always there to guide you out. The honesty is the boom.
The single and album cover art is once again made by the Tenderversion design crew Skogen. The concept do eco the title itself. The collage are pieces from family pictures, some are memories that resists colorful and some will forever be misty and black. It’s the contrast between these that makes it pure and alive.
We have a great crew working around the globe to make this record spin all over. And we wish so, we are truly proud to be a part of this. Soon we set it free for you to listen to, move to, dance to and to touch. Spread the word and mark November 25th as THE day!
So much great news, can’t stop it: Solander will support Junip on their Scandinavian dates in November! A perfect match, don’t miss this!
Killers Walk Among Us is the latest rising stars coming out of Gothenburg’s vibrant music scene. A new band, but with the members’ experienced roots winding through every second of their already well-developed music. Like other Swedish acts, (see: Hunt, Khoma, Cult Of Luna and label mates September Malevolence) KWAU redefines bit by bit what the ever-present term post-rock can be synonymous with. By incorporating strong elements of indie rock, vocals and lots of choirs on top of the drive, KWAU merge two worlds without causing a crash.
The first double single Bonjour Tristesse/Denial Is Not Just A River is released today, digitally and on colored 7″ vinyl! It consists of two remarkably strong tracks, taken from the upcoming self titled debut album to be released later this year.
Among all the uncompromising rock music from Sweden, KWAU is a future name spelled with bold black letters.

Velvet Underground is not longer the only great band having a “Sunday” title (Sunday=Söndag in Swedish). Today Lymland release their new video Söndagstråkigt, directed by the multi artist Hans Appelqvist.
Appelqvist places Lymland in an eerie and strange world, and just hits the low mood and restlessness that sometimes arises on Sundays.
