nya svenska hjältar

some days seem to start boring, when you wake up and take a look out of the window. grey skies and rain. then you sit in front of your computer and search the web for any new music. today is such a day.... it's grey skies outside and it was snowing. but, this time i found a little diamond on the web. twiggy frostbite, a swedish "girl-band", that does so not sound girl-band'ish. after the intro i had to turn the volume up, because what i got to hear was simply breathtaking.... and it still is... as i am writing these lines, i sit in my oxygen-tent. the music of twiggy frostbite reminded me of sigur rós at first, but after a few plays i discovered a whole lot more influences. heavenly voices singing over a bright wall of guitar feedbacks, complex drums, spheric synthesizers and then... a break which makes the singing giving you another wave of goose-bumps, before the next soundwall makes you completely drifting away. the album "through fire" was released in february and i am really surprised that i haven't heard or read anything about twiggy frostbite until today. the single "heroes" is a highlight on the album, but all other 10 songs are true diamonds. "chimera", "grime star" and "along your way" are my other favourites.
