Sweden’s Bolero Recordings and Publishing have been purveyors of fine music since 1997 and their most recent release (out today) is the official audio for Pale Honey’s ‘Get These Things Out of My Head’. Crunching Fuzz guitar sparks and spikes through calmer breaks of calypso melody. Krell machine frequencies oscillate and Casio synth shivers undulate, in waves of evocative atmospherics, punctured by low bit snare strikes, in what builds into an explosive indie dance tune with mental health as the central lyrical theme.
Pale Honey are Tuva Lodmark (guitar and vocals), Nelly Daltrey (drums) with (producer) Anders Lagerfors on guitar, bass and electronics when performing live. Again, the band share publicly music that is deeply personal to them, but relatable and an engaging to all. This track is the teaser before the release of their new album “Devotion”. Released through Bolero Recordings and Publishing on Friday the 13th of October “Devotion” will be the bands second album. Coming two years since the Gothenburg based band released their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album. ‘Get These Things Out of My Head’ has an energy that communicates the band have experienced a revitalisation. Their sound tougher, rebellious and edgier, now moving up out of the mercurial melancholic introspection of their last space-synth single ‘Why Do I Always Feel This Way’ (also on the new album) and ABBA cover, that should have been on the OST for High Rise, “Lay All Your Love on Me“.
