Amason - Sky City
This atmospheric debut from Swedish front Amason is full of catchy art pop hooks and a plaintive breeziness.
"Everything beyond getting together felt like a bonus and made everyone feel really relaxed. It's not like people don't scrutinize their own decisions or those of others, of course, but that's both good and bad. The feel of this band is, "Whatever happens, happens." There's not too much brain activity engaged. It's just like, meet up in the studio, jam, and if we like what comes out we'll release it, and if not, we won't. It's not very thought out at all, which is nice. I have other projects and I've made music in other situations where it was rather the opposite. You have to be so clever about things all the time and that fits sometimes but it doesn't necessarily make the music better." -Petter Winnberg
