sjowgren – “Beginners” // Art: Crowns and Owls

Beginners is a beautiful new single by Sjowgren. The track has a very brooding low-key introduction, with pass-filtered percussion, noisy textures and sonic swells that cream a thick blanket of sounds around the vocals, buried within the mix. However, everything takes a really energetic turn, diving deeper into alternative rock territory with some infectious guitar riffs and edgy grooves.

This is a nice modern indie pop gem with a really interesting feel and a unique production, which blurs the lines between clarity and warmth.

Keep the Sjowgren train rolling with “Now & Then” from VINYL MOON Volume 019: Sacred Dust.

And you wont even have anything in the fridge to eat.  Read more
