The Night Café

On a bright and sunny morning as I type, The Way Of Mary suits the sunshine with the sparkle of guitar and fleetness of foot in the upbeat tempo that spins around the room in good humour.

Overjoyed – Downer – Single Review

Overjoyed is a Swedish indie-dance trio.



Within the past fifteen hours their latest track Downer surfaced. If there were awards for the song-title / sound oxymoron – Downer would most assuredly be on the shortlist.

The bubbles of the trio of Overjoyed sparkle around the room as though shot through a Bren Gun and the listener finds themselves happily dancing in bright party mood as the driving percussion pulls – like a puppeteer – at the limbs with glittering guitars bouncing reflective prisms from the walls as the vocal spins the audience in joyful abandon.

I have heard whispers that Overjoyed have set time aside later in the year to head in to the Studio to complete recording their début LP – a release I am already set for getting hold of some new dancing pumps.

Timshel from Vassa in Finland is the indie-dance sextet of Markus Bergfors (Vocals / Guitar), Patrick Stenbacka (Bass), Olli Nousiainen (Guitar), Petter Erikslund (Drums), Daniel Ventus (Keys) and Sebastian Jacobson (Multi-instrumentalist).

Timshel - indie-dance from Finland


Skipping around the room like a Spring Lamb I find myself in enthral of Timshel, who are able to harness the multifarious angles of projection to a cohesion which just leaves the brain freshly showered. Folk, pop and rock combine into the soundscape that the sextet offer to the ears.

A lightness of touch gives the music an uplight, whilst songs of consternation gives the tracks a sonorous intensity that captivates the mind and Timshel is able to deliver tracks which offer a subtlety of touch which belies the number in the line-up. Rather than using the dexterity to produce volume, they use it to deliver flecks of colour which intoxicate the mind.

The compositions are smartly packaged, but on taking time to unwrap the glossy paper the listener is able to find music which has a heart and soul.

With a decent catalogue behind them, the most recent single – Halfway To Anywhere, which came out on the 17th a adds another fine touch to the library of sounds.


Halfway To Anywhere – Single – Timshel is available on iTunes.*

The Hydrothermal Vents - indie-dance from Canada

The Hydrothermal Vents

An alluring softness flows out of the speakers and gently carpets the floor in a dance mat as The Hydrothermal Vents take your hand and lead you to a close-knit connectivity of footsteps. These are a duo who know how to create music with layers of cloaks and as the layers peel back so the audience becomes more engrossed in the goings-on.

The combinations of instruments and electronics enable The Hydrothermal Vents to immerse the resulting out-put with a sound that takes me to geothermal spas in Iceland with a warming underbelly of sound which is heightened by the frozen mists rising above. At one moment passionate lust swathes the room in sweating bodies the next a tender fingertip is placed to lips as the duo tease the listener with their reflective contemplation.

Just over a year into the existence with an appropriately named nine track début LP Secrets of the Deep! set for release on the 5th July The Hydrothermal Vents is a band to listen to with a partner and space to dance horizontally.
