On a first, careless, listen, Stockholm four-piece Melby might seem like a charming, fun littlejangle-pop band. Pay a little more attention however, and you’ll find their waters run a lot deeperthan that. The band (Matilda Wiezell, Are Engen Steinsholm,David Jehrlander and TeoJernkvist) have all the flash and sparkle of your favourite indie band, but add an ability to touchmoods and feelings with a meaning beyond most of their peers. Their guitars, drums and synthsrattle, roll and flicker around eachother, all held together by the soul-shiver in Wiezell’s vocals,to make immaculate little guitar-pop gems, equally dusted with sadness and sugar.
Kindsight is a new act from the Copenhagen indie scene and the first act outside of Sweden to sign with Rama Lama Records. Kindsight are Nina, Søren, Anders and Johannes and formed out of Nina and Sørens shared love for The Sugarcubes. According to the band, the two of them then recruited drummer Johannes to „drag him out of an unsettling obsession with jazz-music“ and bass player Anders was chosen „only because of his looks and his ability to fit into small bags.“. The quartet makes retro-tinged indie pop that is instantly appealing and addictive. Nina’s vocals crowns the atmospheric soundscape perfectly and makes Kindsight something that’s been missing in Scandinavia for a long time, we’re so excited to have Kindsight as our first international signees and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.
