One band who will be immediately hard at work in 2015 are Swedish, errr, “supergroup” Amason who will be releasing debut album Sky City in January.
Made up of members of Dungen, Miike Snow and Idiot Wind, the collective eschew traditional supergroup bombast in favour of gentle and honest music that’s quietly affecting. There are elements of how Broadcast interpreted the 1960s in the beats and synths of single ‘Duvan’, while Amanda Bergman’s throaty and measured delivery adds a soulful depth to proceedings.
There was always something very naturalistic about Amason’s music since their self-titled debut EP was released in 2013 and we’ll finally get to hear their full-length interpretation of what they regard as pop music when Sky City drops next month. Already tied in to the INGRID collective, this bunch has the potential to be as big as fellow members Lykke Li and Peter, Bjorn and John. Aim high, why not? Ett band som kommer att vara omedelbart hårt arbete 2015 är svenska, errr, "supergrupp": n Amason som kommer att släppa debut album Sky City i januari.
