They have just released their first video for their single of the upcoming EP called Lions

Lions is a song that hits you straight away as being melodic, interesting and with a novel vocal style. The voice although being unmistakably Swedish at times the intonation is almost reggae like.

There are many new bands out there at the moment but this is one to listen to as they offer something new and different, music with no nonsense. I am never sure to ascribe a style to a band is either helpful or correct, as many bands cross many boundaries, but if had to put them in a genre it would be the curious one of Folk/Indie. But undoubtedly it is an interesting voice singing interesting songs and this band should go far. You can compare singers endlessly but the voice is on a par if not superior to voices like Mumford and sons, and that is no exaggeration.

Carl Olander played The Cavendish Arms and here are some photos from the gig.
