At the risk of becoming a bit tedious with my awe at the Swedish music scene, today’s listening pleasure comes from a band called Audrey, and their debut album Visible Forms.
Whereas most of the bands I’ve posted previously have been more on the twee angle, Audrey come from a much more melancholic place. (Think a female, rougher Sigur Ros.)
The lead singer sounds like a mixture of Bjork and Cat Power – the songs are beautifully arranged, cinematic in scope but at times delicate and leftfield.
Definitely one of the recommendations of the year.
