Here are some CLOUDS for A Change

CLOUDS – A Change This is the 3rd single release from Oslo six piece, CLOUDS and it’s out now on Sotron From the band: The making of A Change was a pretty organic process, actually. Chris, the drummer, wrote it and brought it to the others. We all put our individual marks on it, rewrote…

You won’t need Alka-Seltzer if you listen to Jørn Åleskjær

Jørn Åleskjær – Shouldn’t Have To Be Like That Jørn Åleskjær is half of (Swit favourite) The Loch Ness Mouse song writing brother duo. This is his beautiful cover of (Swit favourite) Norwegian 80s band Fra Lippo Lippi. Rather lovely isn’t it? It’s out now on Tune-J Music. The backing band sound strangely familiar…. we’ve…

Norway should this be ignored

He’s not from Madrid, he’s Simen Mitlid

Simen Mitlid – Competition Tune into the indie-folk musings of Simen Mitlid on “Competition”, the 4th single from Simen’s forthcoming LP “Everything is the Same”. Surely, it’s lovely and has that angst and shadowy regret (Red House Painters anyone? anyone ?) that I like and you think “nice” but then the chorus kicks in and…

Get to know these tunes from Oslo

The Age of Colored Lizards – Pale White Sun We love it here at SWIT HQ when bands get in touch with us especially when they’re as good as Norway’s The Age of Colored Lizards. With Ride, Slowdive and Taffy all releasing new records these guys couldn’t have timed it better as interest in “Shoegaze”…

All for one and one for Hval

Jenny Hval – The Great Undressing This is Jenny Hval’s new single from her 2016 masterpiece – Blood Bitch (Sacred Bones/Su Tissue). The video, directed by Marie Kristiansen, has a really interesting concept. Marie says “What would happen if you watched a naked woman totally ignorant about her own nudity going about a normal day….
