April > May

By | Behind the scenes, , Live, Misc | No Comments

Dear all,

We’ve been kind of shitty posting on this blog lately. Twitter and Facebook are to blame, we suppose. Nonetheless,  has gotten its fair share of attention. Both good and… less good.

We played two awesome gigs in Stockholm in April. The last one in particular went really well and the new songs we’ve added to the set really worked out great.

That would be all for now. But things are brewing, be rest assured.

Bless

April’s Fool

So, the gig at Landet was fun. First proper gig since 2011, the low-key sets in Sättra last year set aside. We premiered a new tune called Fanø which we jammed out together with Alf back in February. It’s a good opener for a show.

Less than a week until Já is finally released. It’s been almost a year since we went to Iceland for principal tracking and overdubs. Crazy what time flies, eh?

More news later.

Bless bless.

Dreams of Nova Scotia – Out January 15th 2014

By | , Music | No Comments

Dear all,

We are happy to announce (albeit it has been announced everywhere else) that the first single of Já, Dreams of Nova Scotia, will be released digitally on January 15th on Novoton Records.

It’s been a long journey for this songs. We wrote it in December 2009 in Oskar’s room in Stockholm before enjoying one of our many longstanding traditions: hot nachos, port wine and horror flicks. It was supposed to end up on both Thoughts in Arpeggio and Isles, but we never got it quite right.  Until now.

There will also be a video directed by Eric Persson. It’s gorgeous.

As we’re trying to tighten the knots on the project , an urge to perform these songs live have – inevitably – emerged. Now, we’ve tried this before. By this I refer to the tactic of asking whomever this might concern to give us a helping hand to sort out the odd gigs and whatnot. It hasn’t really worked out as most of you read this are what we native speakers of Swedish refer to as ‘närmast sörjande’ (roughly ~ immediate family)Thus, not a lot of great offers coming our way. So, again, if you work for a booking agency or knows someone who does, spread the word. This’ll be the last of it.

We might have one gig this autumn if everything pans out. If and if only, it’ll take place at the end of September/early October here on Öland. It’ll be the first gig for over two years and it’ll be the first with our new helping hands.
