Thanks Nick from Soliti, STINAKO’s single’s so pretty

Nick got in touch to tell us about STINAKO’s new single – Kuu nousee tänäkin yönä. I’m really quite taken with this hauntingly beautiful piece. Stina Koistinen (STINAKO) says “This song was born under a state of exaltation, and I can’t get enough of it. I’m a preacher just for this tiny moment, and this…

Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Ocelot hit the spot

Ocelot – Hämärä. Super World Indie Tune Of The Day – 07.11.2018 We are delighted to premiere Ocelot’s new single “Hämärä”, a song about endings and beginnings.

SWIT Premiere: The New Tigers are Grrreat!!

Is it their finest work to date? “In The Tall Grass” is impossibly evocative, these impressions jotted down before I even knew the title – the song induced a kind of trance – crickets, the hissing of summer lawns, the delicious, ambiguous, almost imperceptible backing vocals, the memories of a hot summers day recalled on…

SWIT Premiere – DALLAS KALEVALA : VICTIMIZER

DALLAS KALEVALA : VICTIMIZER Here comes the big noise. We are delighted to premiere “Victimizer” by Dallas Kalevala. The band takes their cue from some block rocking beats, the song is loud, dark and sweet, it makes you want to move your feet, it’s got that nineties (I think, I’ve been alive so long) sheen,…
