San Francisco based music duo Cathedrals delivers the perfect soundtrack to our swoon moments: right on that balance between beautiful and punchy, with their much buzzed self-titled debut EP. While openers ‘Harlem’ and ‘Unbound’ are all about that “Oh, let’s all wave hands and enjoy this beautiful moment,” the duo walks that fine hip-pop line on “In The Dark” and “OOO AAA .” Basically, it ranges from grand ballads to the kind of stuff you’d expect the Haim sisters wildly wave their hair along with. Listen to their tunes and get soaked in!

Gothenburg’s elusive duo JJ have revealed something of a cinematic reel ahead of what looks to be a strikingly produced new album, the pair’s first in four years!
Internet-silent and quasi-anonymous for years, JJ recently unveiled themselves as Erin Kastlander and Joakim Benon. Putting names to faces, however, doesn’t seem to have dented their identity nor enigmatic output. The two worked with fellow Swede Olivia Kastebring on this extended clip in which we see a sad lot of fair-skinned Scandinavians cast under the spell of endless wintertide.
Beautiful work!

To be honest, I had never heard the word ‘oblivious‘ before.

But it sounds so beautiful. I looked it up. I love the word.

It sounds exactly like what it means. And this song also sounds exactly like what it’s about:

Not even had I never heard the word, no worse, I had never heard anything of the band Suits Boulevard from Denmark before either. I stumbled across this beautiful song as my friend Aimé opens the music video by reciting a poem by Ehsan and Amin Kavousi from their book ‘While the World is asleep’.

To be honest, it can be a tricky thing to begin your song with the beautiful words of other artists – especially when shared with the faultless beauty of a native french accent – but no not in this case. No harm for the soulful Danish Rock band that give us a hard time picking the most fascinating one of them. Oh and yes poetry needs no shirts on!

Jakob Möller, self-declared Superstunningkid at Discoteka Yugostyle!. Green glowing smoke coming out of a tuba, 10 firecrackers of handsome swedish guys putting crowds of soaking wet people in a dance-trance. I never thought to find such beats up north!

 

 

 

/ How would you finish these sentences, Jakob?

The best Tarantino movie of all times is…True Romance. Really, you have to see it if you have not.
Trance is a feeling of…illusion.
If your shoes could talk…they would probably make as much sence as me.
Romance means…not pretending and acting like life is some movie. (Funny I think True Romance is the best movie) When you talk about the really hard stuff and dare to really come close to someone, thats romance. That is what I think is the hardest thing in life and I fear very few ever experience it.

 

/ How come 10 Swedish guys start a yugotrance band?

▽ We were young and wise and we realized that this kind of music is the kind that really works in the disco. And that is what is really important.

 

/ I agree! Awesome you guys did it!
You have your 10 years anniversary this year, right? Congrats on that! You also always have a deer on stage with you. What’s its name? Do you guys consider it part of the band? (then happy anniversary to the deer, too!)

▽ The deer is our mascot and the name is Jelena. She is somehow giving us strength and the will to deliver however strong the anti disco winds may be.

 

/ Ok, cliché-questions: Beirut or Shantel?

▽ Sorry, we dont really listen to those..

 

/ What was your most unforgettable gig in the last 10 years?

▽ Emmabodafestivalen this summer was unforgettable. It was so much fun.

 

/ And how about the best place in the world?

▽ Our new rehearsal/studio space in Lund (South Sweden)!

 

/ What comes closest to the feeling of flying? (Obviously I assume that flying is an awesome feeling.)

▽ The feeling of crashing so hard you dont think you will survive it and making it anyways. That gives you hope and the belief that although life sucks in so many ways, you can manage and even feel good sometimes. It sounds dark but I think that is where true joy really comes from.

 

/ How would you describe the Swedish style?

▽ Open minded and very aware of the importance of equality between men and women. Hopefully.

 

/ Are you planning on travelling to the Balkans again in the near future?

▽ We are not sure but we really want to get down there again soon. There is a really special vibe in those countries.

 

/ Are you born at the right time?

▽ I believe we were born at a time when the welfare system and the society really were at their peaks. While we have been growing up these systems have become more and more flawed. This means we have to start fighting to reverse this development. Especially the way people are starting to view people they call “immigrants.” Hopefully we will be able to help make things better in some way through our music. We will see how.

 

/ Did you ever get a note written with lipstick?

▽ No! Please do.

 

/ I will consider it. Are you working on a new single?

▽ We can not say yet.

 

/ Oh I don’t like secrets…What’s your next gigs?

▽ Because we are now working on the thing we can’t say what it is yet we currently do not have any gigs planned. Feels kind of strange since we have been playing all the time for the last 10 years but it also feels good.

 

/ Tack and thanks for checking in with us, Jakob! Good luck with your secret project, say hi to the other boys and we are looking forward to hearing more soon!!

Hey love, what’s going on in here?
You’re ruthless like a stone
Hey love, why you don’t seem to care?
It’s to you I belong

 

 

Since I left the Quadron concert at Debaser Medis in Stockholm Saturday night, I listen to their song ‘hey love’ on repeat. I sometimes interrupt but just to listen to one of their other songs – ja, but that’s basically it. Quadron’s music is special; it gets you hooked because it is in a stunning way complex and simple at the same time. You feel so many layers and a sense for small details and nuances, which is a complex construct on the one hand. But as it all fits so perfectly in its neo soul / jazz / electric combination, it on the other hand ‘simply’ makes sense to your ears. It has a slight old fashioned touch to it in the sense that it feels familiar and so gets you hooked to it already after the first few beats. At the same time it is so new and fresh that you just want to soak it all in. and get more and more.

Until I entered the concert hall I had never heard of Quadron before and I had therefore no idea what to expect. When Coco O entered the stage wearing her hair in the exact same style like me (a high chignon – I know nothing special in Scandinavia at all I admit!) I felt safe. No one would suspect anymore that I didn’t know the Duo, singer Coco O and Producer Robin Hannibal from Copenhagen that were going to perform. People would rather think I was the biggest fan of Coco trying to copy her style. So you better be good up there on stage, Coco!

Obviously she was. After her first breathy lines I already fell for their music. But also with her way of moving, her gestures and the way she talked between the different songs I was amazed. It had the same high level of complexity like the music has in her rehearsed movements as well as natural expressions and glimpses of sporadic insecurity followed by a kickass performance and grace. When she moved her face to the side it struck me how much she looked like Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.

Her black sparkling dress and her dark hair up in the chignon accompanied by big golden creoles and an in-between-fingers ring on her right hand, that made her gestures even more exhilarating to look at. Looking for pictures of Coco O on the web later I found her pictures of her outfit at the David Letterman show, where she played with the Frida Kahlo association even more boldly herself, which made me smirk big times. In Stockholm now Coco O shared with the audience that most of her lyrics tell the story of unrequited love stories. Frida told her kind of pain stories in her kind of art. Of course that’s nothing new or unique for artists – but damn both such great outcomes of sucky feelings. Thanks for that.

I hoped Frida you could hear Coco sing!

Especially after Fashion Week (it's always before Fashion Week) we question ourselves or more dubitate about the sense of the fashion circus from time...
