The Other End – Sleepwalking – Super World Indie Tune Of The Day. 5.12.2018 The Other End are probably the best new band we’ve heard in the past 12 months and Sleepwalking is another ephemeral beauty from the Norwegian duo. Everything we’ve come to expect from them is present and correct – Ida’s haunting, mesmeric…

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…

The Ghost Of Helags – Anthem (We Came From The Stars)

The Ghost Of Helags – Anthem (We Came From The Stars) Anthem starts out as a blissful, twitchfull, symphonic reverie, a prayer written under the open night skies and gradually builds to a euphoric trance, and then trails off into a reverent coda of “you will be mine”. I love the percussion, the strings and…

In some ways a beginning is just The Other End

The Other End – Far From Home As debuts go this is pretty special. As new songs go, this is pretty special. We love it here at SWIT when we get in on the ground floor (so to speak) with a new band. This elevator is definitely going through the glass ceiling. “Far From Home”…
