Fisher King is the debut album from Furrows, aka singer-songwriter and former Berklee jazz student Peter Wagner. Supposedly Grizzly Bear’s Yellow House was a big deal for him, and you can hear it in his music, though Fisher King‘s lead single “Grey Cities” errs more on the brisk and featherweight side, in the airspace between Sufjan Stevens and Beach Fossils.

Music by Bergman: Her’s

Dynamic pair Audun Laading and Stephen Fitzpatrick are both outsiders from sleepy coastal towns several countries apart but have established themselves as Her’s on the banks of the Mersey.

Fitzpatrick possesses a swerving, low rasp endorsed by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes) and engineered by Matt Berninger (The National).

Coupled with wave after wave of luscious, Beach Fossils-esque jangle pop and the striking aesthetics denoted within, it’s a refreshingly modern take on the beach-scuzz exploration of the ’80s.
Dreamy, hazy and yearning for escape with every jangle or croon, Her’s are the summery angst everyone – even the happiest of souls – can embrace.

Ville à Dômat: Transgressions Transcendents

Local Bands: Twin Drama

Twin Drama are Xavier Mohedano and Fernando Herrero, two youngsters from Barcelona who last summer decided to put everything into simple, highly energetic sunny pop. A formula that they have encapsulated perfectly in songs such as “Marie Lou” and where there are echoes of Beach Fossils, surf-pop and electrifying minimalism. With only a guitar and a percussion kit and a good sense of rhythm, as was appreciated on their first demo, the Barcelona duo has become one of the last to sign to Helsinki Pro, a small booking and management agency based in Barcelona.

Music by Bergman: Amber Arcades

Amber Arcades is the moniker of Dutch-born musician Annelotte de Graaf. De Graaf first started writing songs in 2010 while temporarily living in Philadelphia. Back in the Netherlands she put out a first EP in 2012 containing soft-voiced, melancholic folk ballads.

Wanting to develop her sound and mature from the safe bedroom folk environment, she got in touch with producer Ben Greenberg (Beach Fossils, The Men, Destruction Unit) to produce a collection of songs she had written over the years. In May 2015, de Graaf flew out to New York to record the songs in the Strange Weather recording studio in Brooklyn, backed by a band consisting of members of Real Estate, Quilt and Kevin Morby.

The result is a record that is as dreamy and esoteric as it is gripping, presenting slightly off, floating pop melodies over a mixture of kraut-inspired drums, cutting guitars and fuzzed-out organs.
