AMAZING - WAit for a Light (Cream of Sweden's psych underground- psych pop perfection) CDSUBLIMINAL SOUNDS (SWEDEN)
Gatefold digipack. Brand new recordings of Swedish Folk-Rock-Psych-Pop perfection.
The Amazing fell far from the tree. A natural process: coming together through affection, then slowly crystallising into a folk-rock-psych-pop- collective slowly pushing, bending then playing with any preconceived notions of pop. Friends first and foremost, its this kindred spirit that imbues the bands debut with a feeling unlike that of most releases - one of natural harmony, persistent progression and with a panoramic gaze fixed on distant settings.
Their 2009 debut album has received unanimous critical acclaim worldwide. This is their follow up a new mini-album with an all-encompassing sonic soundscape of groovy electric folk rock, psychedelic pop and heavy jams.
The core musicians in The Amazing are Christoffer Gunrup, Reine Fiske, who doubles as the lead guitar wizard in Dungen and whos solos so furiously its as if somethings trapped inside him that must be turned into melody or hell burst into flames, Johan Holmegard (who doubles as the drummer in Dungen too) and Fredrik Swahn. With special guests including some of Swedens finest musicians; Gustav Ejstes (Dungen) and Moussa Fadera (Life on Earth!) amongst others.
Nothing on Wait for a Light to Come is introverted or overworked - everything is balanced, kept together by natural melodies, soulful vocals and just how perfect should be.
The Amazing is a feeling, an organic consequence of something that effortlessly came together, the start of a quite extraordinary tale.
