The Amazing headed by Reine Fiske of Dungen have made their greatest album yet, you can get lost in the instrumentation and subtle vocals and grooves.
The eleven tracks on this next record manage to stay just out of focus. Together, they refine the Swedish five piece’s signature dreamlike soundscape and cement the band’s status as one of the decade’s most consistently compelling acts.
Self-produced and recorded in Stockholm, ‘In Transit’ picks up right where 2016’s acclaimed ‘Ambulance’ left off. The songs expand on frontman/guitarist Christoffer Gunrup’s gloomy, textured vision – gorgeous tones, fed through layers of distortion in the style of The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Flaming Lips.
Gunrup’s fellow band members Reine Fiske (also of Dungen, guitar), Moussa Fadera (drums), Alexis Benson (bass) and Frederik Swahn (keyboards and guitars) follow suit, melding together in a vivid combination of melody and mood.
