“What the world needs now is love sweet love” and this band has it in spades.

This 6 piece have known each other since childhood [5 of them grew up on the small island of Bornholm off the Swedish coast] and it shows in their seemingly effortless ability to craft beautiful, hypnotic pop songs that are a therapy for today’s time of isolation.

Centered around the dreamlike vocal brilliance of Maria Mortensen, the band play an intense, mesmerizing landscape of sounds that hearken back to ‘shoegaze’ whilst reminding one of early Cocteaus with the hooky synth lines reminiscent of The Cure and Tears for Fears.

The band have just released their debut album, called Scarlet Chives, to critical acclaim, produced by the band and Paul Schroeder { Stone Roses, Verve, Campag Velocet } on the independent label Sureleaf.

This world does need love and this is the band that delivers.
