Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Gary Olson – “Giovanna Please”.

Super World Indie Tune Of The Day 03.04.2020: Gary Olson – “Giovanna Please”. I don’t say this lightly but the moody aural landscape of “Giovanna Please” put me immediately in mind of Wichita Lineman. Yep, it’s that good. It’s got that beautiful seventies pop sound – the strings and guitar marry to delightful effect, the…

Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Ē are a shore thing

Super World Indie Tune Of the Day 18.06.2019: “Afraid Of The Ocean” by Ē. Hello! This is “Afraid Of The Ocean” by Oslo-based Ē.

Mt. Mélodie reach new heights

The minute you hear Only Ghosts and Useless Things from Mt. Mélodie you’ll want to get up and dance (not in your underwear Tom).

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.

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…
