Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Emil Duvier dawns on SWIT

Emil Duvier – Early Light. Super World Indie Tune Of The Day -11.09.2018. A homage to the dawn, the quiet, introspective opening to “Early Light” soon blossoms into a lovely comedown tune with sweet electronic touches and chilled beats, never losing its sense of space.

Above Above go above and beyond the beyonds

Philip Skovgaard aka Above Above is back with new single “Faux Gospel”. It’s a downbeat, distorted electronic rumination. Strong on atmospherics and tinged with sadness, it builds to an orchestral crescendo, conjuring images of ice fields, mountains, and vast empty places. Philip says “it’s just about how the days come and go, and what one…

Swit dreams with Marie-Louise Munck

Pass the umbrellas, it’s Løvfald

Løvfald – Regn Being Irish, I think it’s fair to say that we are experts on rain, the many different types of it and the evocation of the same. I’m thinking “Regn” by Løvfald, evokes for me steady, persistent rain, that fills the drainpipes and lasts all day (sure the rest is only a shower)…..
