The Swedish melodic rock trio don’t trust Vegas released the two track single Mercy on the 13th.

Fascinatingly the B side of the single is a piano version of Mercy, which gives an insight to their songwriting song starting points and expands on how don’t trust Vegas are able to use their musical prowess to create material which is both expansive whilst simultaneously has a clear direction of travel.

The full version interweaves the synths and guitar to create the generous backdrop for the vocal to emote of the context of the track, while the bass and percussion brings everything together akin to a spanner turning a bolt.

Word arrives that during the course of 2017 don’t trust Vegas aim to release singles on a fairly regular basis and it will be interesting to discover whether each release will also include the source material.

Mercy – Single – Don’t Trust Vegas is available on iTunes.*

LaDiDa – You Got It – Video

Within the past couple of hours the Swedish alt-rock band LaDiDa alerted me to a brand new song…

LaDiDa - You Got It

LaDiDa – You Got It

You Got It – requests only that your hips and knees are in snaking mood as the bustle of percussion and bass tremble the walls akin to a quickie outside the pub, whilst guitar plays the part of the Peeping Tom furtively glancing over the shoulders as vocal attracts the Doggers from miles around and before you know it – what was a quiet tryst has become a full on showcase being streamed live across the internet.

David Edlund – Days Gone By – Audio

The Swedish dream-sequence creator David Edlund released his début LP – Magnolia – on the 20th.

The six track approximately twenty three minutes album spins threads of silk which hang in the air even after the notes have faded in to silence. Combinations of electronics, keys, percussion and instrumentation glide between each other, with occasional synthesised sounds from the larynx – leaving the listener becalmed by the weave of textures.

Magnolia is most certainly not an LP to take out on a training run, but is a fine accompaniment to moments of quiet reflection and probably why it has taken me the best part of an hour to jot these few thoughts whilst having the album on repeat loop.

The closing track is Days Gone By.
