Sóley: Krómantík Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland Sóley: Krómantík Three years ago Sóley Stefánsdóttir released her excellent alternative pop debut album, 'We Sink', under the moniker Sóley and according to plan a second will follow next year. As an overture to that - although we are probably talking two quite different expressions - she released the album she's wanted ... (Click To Continue Reading)
DF5K: Kioto Categories: Alternative • Finland • Tracks • Videos DF5K: Kioto Hailing from Oulu DF5K is another of those bands that won't tell us much about themselves (other than that they apparently like french fries), but as far as I can gather they got together back in 2012 and the result so far is three tracks, a remix and most recently ...

Dánjal: Raindrops Categories: Alternative • Faroe Islands • Videos Dánjal: Raindrops A couple of weeks ago Dánjal released his third album, ’Time’, which was preceded by this single and video. ‘Raindrops’ is as pop as I can remember hearing the Faroese singer, while still rich on his trademark theatrics. Also here are ‘Beth’ and ‘Never Again’, first released as part of ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Queenfish & Other Tales: Oh! How Stupid Categories: Alternative • Sweden • Videos Queenfish & Other Tales: Oh! How Stupid Following up her lauded debut album, ‘Landing’, from last year, the Swedish singer and multi-instrumentalist Ewa Wikström has released a new single under her moniker Queenfish & Other Tales. Titled ‘Oh! How Stupid’ it is said to show a new, more raw sound and I guess that’s a fair assessment ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Firewoodisland: ILD Categories: Albums • Alternative • Norway Firewoodisland: ILD Back in 2010 Norway native Stian Vedøy relocated to Cardiff in Wales and in 2013 Firewoodisland came to life as he joined forces with Abi Newbould, Stephen Allen and Rowan Blake.

ORKA: Leipzig Categories: Albums • Alternative • Faroe Islands ORKA: Leipzig That Faroese collective ORKA fronted by Jens L. Thomsen is something entirely unique is no secret. They have proven it with homemade instruments, excellent live shows and now four albums of equal parts alternative rock and industrial electronica. The latest, ‘Leipzig’, is both their most accessible (’Leipzig VII - Sing’ ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Metal Sólstafir: Ótta It has always been a bit of a stretch to call Sólstafir metal. On ‘Ótta’ the term really doesn’t make sense anymore, but I got no better genre that really covers it. The Icelandic four-piece just makes music. Haunting, beautiful, rich, atmospheric music that sounds like nothing else. ‘Ótta’ may ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Brother North: Brother North Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Sweden Brother North: Brother North At just 22 Swedish/Icelandic duo Brother North - Freyr Flodgren and Lucas Enquist - have already been making music together for a decade, the culmination so far being the release of their debut album this year. Inhabiting the same sphere as fellow Scandinavian Klak Tik, although less eccentric, the duo ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Nancy: Seas Surrounding Categories: Albums • Alternative • Finland Nancy: Seas Surrounding Pretty much exactly a year on from their debut, ‘IDDQD’, Finnish quartet Nancy return with a full length album departing a bit from their first in style. The core is still grandiose rock, but this time around they’ve intensified the use of electronics and more than once tweaked the knobs ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Blaue Blume: Beau & Lorette Categories: Albums • Alternative • Denmark Blaue Blume: Beau & Lorette This quartet might not be strangers to you as their debut single, 'On New Years Eve', quickly earned them a great reputation and chart success last year. Since then 'Helen' and 'Jealousy' followed and last week finally Blaue Blume's official EP debut, 'Beau & Lorette', which should only add to ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Alice Boman: EP II & Skisser Categories: Albums • Alternative • Sweden Alice Boman: EP II & Skisser So, Alice Boman's debut full length is in fact two EPs - 'Skisser' (“sketches” in Swedish) released last year, and 'EP II' released both on this album and as standalone EP last week - and you can hear that through the eleven songs. First half is the latest, sporting a ... (Click To Continue Reading)
