We have covered lo-fi indie geniuses The BV’s on a number of occasions. They are on wunderbar German label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten and we also featured their recent single “Every Story Is A Ghost Story” on Cloudberry Records. You can only imagine how delighted we were to get to interview Josh and Fred. They talk…

Tsvetochnyui 15 is a high pop-art concept, and one of the most creative and original acts we’ve had the pleasure to feature since we started the site 4 years ago.

Urgent delivery from POSTMAN

photo by Stefan Maier It’s a great day at SWIT Towers today. Not only do we get to show the world the new video for “Third Hand” by one of our very favourite bands – POSTMAN – but we also got to interview them as well, and I can honestly say it’s one of the…

Super World Interview Time: Angelos Krallis from CHiCKN

We covered the single “Am I Cher?” by CHiCKN recently, saying ‘”Greek band CHiCKN are new to me, this is just a brilliant retro tune, like Cat Stevens overdosing on acid. Pure class. I am Cher about that.” In fact, we were so taken with their (soon to be seminal) new LP “WOWSERS!” (Inner Ear…

Super World Interview Time: Florian Zimmer from Driftmachine

Driftmachine is Andreas Gerth and  Florian (Flow) Zimmer from Berlin. Shunter is their new album, it’s a wonderfully dark amalgam of ambient, abstract,  industrial and avant-garde sounds, a soundtrack for forgotten places and abandoned spaces, for movies that have not been made yet. We speak ot Flow because of his role with  Morr Music and…

Super World Interview Time: Anna Jean of Juniore

Juniore’s 2017 LP “Ouh Là Là” was one of our records of the year. It was unique, a heady mix of the old and the new, a bright, beautiful, stylish and BOLD statement of intent from Anna Jean and the band. Produced by Samy Osta, with striking artwork by Anna Jean herself, it made for…

Super World Interview Time: Lisa E of Nikki Oniyome

SWIT featured Nikki Oniyome’s new EP “Mizu/Sui 水”  not so long. I said I’ve listened many times to the four excellent electro-acoustic folktronic tracks and some impressions occur – installation pop, minimal, intelligent, cooly emotional, thoughtful, surprising, playful, unexpected, delightful. Each song is a different take on water music, from the cinematic “Drown”, the sombre and…

Super World Interview Time: What goes around comes around for Jeannel

We covered Jeannel’s first release “Mind Tricks” last year, now she is back with another fantastic song and video – the beautiful, reflective, multi-layered ballad  “Karma”.  It’s from her forthcoming debut EP ‘Love’ on Better Call Rob which was co-produced by Tamer Fahri (Dillon, Lafawnda) and Christian Prommer (Fauna Flash, Voom Voom). We were delighted when…

Super World Interview Time: Örvar Smárason hits another home run.

Örvar Smárason’s debut solo LP “Light Is Liquid” (Morr Music) is something special indeed, but that is hardly surprising, given he has been a central figure of the Icelandic music scene for more than 20 years. Probably best known as a founding member of the legendary múm, he has been involved in many other bands…

SWIT Premiere: Tom Wu – All You Want

Tom Wu – All You Want We are delighted to premiere the stream of professional provocateur Tom Wu’s new LP. “All You Want” (Cut Surface) is a frenetic, tantalizing trip through the dark underworld of Wu. Tom sings, plays the drums and the synthesizers all at once and the effect is mesmerising, giving the songs…
