The B-side of the release (available on bandcamp) – The Fool – is one in which a plaintiff vocal elicits a teary-eyed response by the listener enhanced further by the stark guitar which accompanies the voice.

Those of longer stay with the site may well recall The Exploding Boy from back in 2013 with its menacing countenance – Johan Sjöblom – is the common thread.

Davidson – Whatever Lies Before You – Single Review

The Swedish heavy-metal solo project Davidson fairly regularly surfaces with new material.



The latest song to be revealed is Whatever Lies Before You. A thumper of a composition that hurtles out of the speaker festooned in pin-badges and fraying denim that finds the listener joining in with the extended bridge.

There is a delightful dampening that gives Whatever Lies Before You a softlight focus and earthy feel. The more it runs through the just under four and three quarter minutes play time the longer the audience wants it to last – whilst completely forgetting this is a band of one – not a full line-up of four.

Luna Green – Lotus Interception – Single Review

It has been the best part of three years since the Swedish empyreal-dream creator Luna Green last surfaced with new studio music.

One is minded of watching the aurora-borealis as the absorbing soundscape slowly plays its display through the ears, as the newest single Lotus Interception drifts in to aural range.

There exists a constant of focus in the pulsing bass whilst fracturing flashes of colour switch through the room and as the mind focuses on one trajectory, so another sparks in another direction. It isn’t until the ears are able to refocus on the broader context of pivoting sounds and take in the full range that the full mythological beauty of the spectrum comes in to its full munificence.

VILDE - High Horse


The just over three minutes of High Horse, fills the room with hazy electronica that settles, like layers of drifting smoke, around the ears inviting the listener to lay aside the woes of the day and relax in the ambient textures.
