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…

Super World Interview Time: Cinder Well will have your goths for garters

We have featured tunes from Cinder Well’s new LP “The Unconcious Echo” on a couple of occasions recently.  It’s a dark, beautiful affair tinged with loss and features some wonderful songwriting and playing. You can imagine our delight when Ennis-based band leader Amelia Baker agreed to do an interview with us! The group are on tour around…

Super World Interview Time: Mickey make one of the albums of the year

Austrian-based Slovakian duo Mickey are Alex Konrad and Klemens Wihlidal, formerly (and possibly futurely) of SWIT favourites GIN GA and they have just released their debut album “Overtime” on Ink Music. I guess Alex’s vocals are immediately recognisable to anyone familiar with his past and the record certainly shares the GIN GA sense of fun.  Well,…

Super World Interview Time: MyGhost revisit their old haunts

Back in the summer of 2016 when we were FEW (and far between) we premiered “Queen Of Summer”  (Dead Bees Records) by MyGhost. Now that we are SWIT we are delighted to have an interview with the boys on the occasion of the release of their debut LP also entitled “MyGhost”. The beautifully-produced record fulfills…

Super World Interview Time: No Suits In Miami roll up their sleeves

This is No Suits In Miami’s third outing on SWIT. The band are from the southern Swedish town of Lund and consist of Michelle Dzgoeva, Olle Oscarsson, Hannes Ponzlid and Erik Lange.  Today we have their brilliantly downbeat, tuneful new single “Plain Sight”, plus we get a chance to interrogate the band. We have ways…

Super World Exclusive Time: Foreign Owl’s new song “Jump” takes flight

We said previously “mixing elements of René Magritte, Sparklehorse, Edward Lear and whatever you’re having yourself, Foreign Owl makes quite extraordinary sounds” and now new song “Jump” (produced by Rory Moore) confirms everything we thought previously and more. It’s a jumped-up catchy-groove, with wonderful vocals over(under?)laid with a  tale of divers taking a dangerous leap into…

Super World Interview Time: Attic Giant give us some head-space.

We featured “Blow” off Attic Giant’s excellent EP “Flush” (Better Call Rob) last year. They’ve since followed up with the even better “Light=Whatwesee”. The group is a Vienna-based musical project and five-piece band founded by singer-songwriter Daniel Tischler,  we were delighted to catch up with him to find out some more, and his grandmother provided a…
