Originally formed as a duo Wolfpack is the first song to be revealed that reflects of the new Tuvaband reconfiguration.

Rather than layering the song with antonyms of sound the track has a mellowed flow of synonyms that melt one in to the other creating just over four and a half minutes of dreamy ambient harmonised electronica that wraps softly around the spectral voice and leaves the listener becalmed from the daily travails of life.

Continuing to secure gigs across Europe forthcoming appearances in Iceland and Germany can only enhance the reach of a more than capable musician.

The slapped strings surface in to the room in splodges of mud in to which the listener dives head first, while the off beat of the track gives the song their signature swaggering funky vibe as the vocal flashes through the room akin to a lighthouse lamp as it snaps in and out of focus with the resonating deep tones of I Know Where You’ve Been rattling the speakers off their anchors rounding out a song that bears immediate replay to fully enjoy the range of the dynamics of frequencies within its two hundred and seventeen seconds duration.

The latest track to surface from the album – Dear Diane – is an intriguing mix of indie-dance and heavy-rock that has a scruffy coat in to which the listener finds themselves reaching for air-guitar, whilst simultaneously chanting along with the good time vocal, yet never becoming uncomfortable with either.

Hepatit-X

Spending much of their time performing live, it has been over three years since their last recorded release, when they were a trio.



Bad Oslo, the first track to surface from the album, which was released as a standalone single on the 9th, discovers Hepatit-X as a tighter and faster unit and now pulling references from ’70s heavy-metal and moving away from their earlier stoner soundtrack. On the basis of the song – Soldiers and Supervisors will be an LP to add to the collection, which is also coming out on Vinyl through Big Day Records.

Lasting an ideal three minutes and fifteen seconds, Bad Oslo is a song that will have the listener head-banging between loudly playing speakers within moments. The earthy heavy-metal is delivered on the spine of a blistering performance on percussion in a driving impetus that threatens to break the skins, with guitar snarling through finessed chords, while the bass punches the eardrums as the vocal delivers a top-notch performance. Hepatit-X even manage to drop in a snippet of Blondie – what is there not to make for a recommendation to spend some time in their company.

Broken Swans – You Don’t Like Me Anymore – Single Review

Broken Swans is a Norwegian lofi project.

Broken Swans

Broken Swans

Broken Swans has only recently come to the table, with three tracks revealed in the past couple of months.

The most recent of which is You Don’t Like Me Anymore (available on bandcamp) – a fragile composition which the listener senses is likely to fracture even as it surfaces out of the speakers as the frail feathers flutter in tender strains of introspective soliloquy lain on a bed of laced acoustic guitar.

Broken Swans is a musical entity possessing of a gentle grace which I look forward to hearing more from in the coming year.
