The Finnish indie band Timshel released the single Floating yesterday.
In the intervening couple of years since their introduction back in 2014 what was a sextet has pared down to a trio with previous members floating in and out from time to time and adding other musicians as appropriate with Daniel Ventus returning to provide keys and a new player Erik Sjöholm adding slide guitar to the remaining core of Markus Bergfors, Patrick Sjöholm and Petter Erikslund on this release.
Floating is a just under four and half and half minute track that invites the listener to the dance-floor with a courteous bow of introduction. The song identifies precisely why Scandinavia remains the place you need to go to find the best clubs in the world with the innovative musicians who are able to fill the venues with audiences from around the globe – if only they are quick enough to get there before the pop-up venue is already history, but one gets the sense that Timshel will always be on the playlist – where ever the latest location opens.
Minding of the enthusiastic rhythms of Dexys Midnight Runners melded with the best of the yet to come – Floating is one to add to the collection.
