Last year, one of my friends gave me a compilation of songs. Among them was a track from a Swedish band, The Mary Onettes.
Puzzles. The epic and unforgettable opening sound of this song gives you the chills. Then Philip Ekström starts singing and you get completely lost in something quite extraordinary. Something that I call real music.
Here, I share it with you, hoping it leaves you touched the way it left me, and you’ll want to hear more of this amazing sound.
And also the style of the video adds a great mysterious effect to the song.
And that is not all my friends. There is much more! The band has released two albums so far which are full of gorgeous music. Music that takes you to a land of beautiful melodies and charismatic voice.
Influenced by The Stone Roses and The Cure, this Swedish quartet has mastered the feel of 80’s sound with a modern pitch and a great guitar.
I cannot get enough of their work. Both of their albums are a pure masterpiece!
Their new EP called Love Forever will be released at the end of this month (28th of February) and the new album will hopefully be released by the end of this year!
Here is one track from the EP named Love’s Taking Strange Ways and it’s the track of the day in Q Magazine!
I cannot wait to hear the whole EP!
