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…

Sweden’s Kristal & Jonny Boy are Kristina Hanses (vocals, lyrics, dance) and Jonny Eriksson (guitar, drums), they have just released their new LP “It’s My Heart” on La Tempesta and it’s accompanied by a couple of wonderful videos that show off their striking visual style and choreography to stunning effect.

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…
