Swedish Punk is due out on March 25th via Rama Lama Records
“It’s impressive how at home in their sound Kindsight are" - The Line of Best Fit "Kindsight might just be your new favourite band." - For The Rabbits "If you’re looking for a breakout band from Denmark, then you’ve come to the right place" - The Revue
Last month, Danish indie-rock band Kindsight announced their debut album Swedish Punk is set to be released on March 25th via Rama Lama Records. Today they unleash 'Hi Life', the third and final single to be shared ahead of the album's release. To celebrate the release, the band will be heading out on tour this Spring, including their first ever UK dates. Details below. Kindsight make music that draws from 80’s and 90’s alternative rock and combines it with the shimmering Scandinavian pop that the region has become so renowned for, resulting in a sound that is both fuzzy and melodic in equal measure. Releasing their first material in 2020, the up and coming Danish four-piece have been quick on the rise, picking up steam with a series of new singles over the last 18 months. Punchy new single ‘Hi Life’ tells the story of being trapped in an apartment for months on end, watching life unfold through the windows of the block opposite. Front-woman Nina Hyldgaard Rasmussen’s vocal shine, playfully weaving its way over the band’s almost math-rock backing before finally meeting the guitars for a truly addictive chorus. The band formed when Rasmussen and guitarist Søren Svensson bonded over a shared love of The Sugarcubes. They went on to recruit bass player Anders Prip and drummer Johannes Jacobsen and over the past few years have earned a reputation within Copenhagen’s thriving indie scene for their exciting live shows. On the album’s title, Rasmussen says “Swedish Punk’ was an off the cuff term our producer, Adam, came up with when we needed a working title for a new song we wrote during the recording sessions. Our bass player, Anders, then wrote some lyrics based on the working title and we ended up liking the whole ‘Swedish Punk’-thing so much it became the name of the album”. There’s a real coming of age charm to Swedish Punk. There’s not a single song on the album that would feel out of place on the soundtrack of a 00’s independent movie. The band possess an unmistakable talent for crafting disarmingly buoyant yet achingly nostalgic indie-rock songs based on the everyday. Steeped in optimism, wit and melody, Swedish Punk is a treasure trove of charming and infectiously catchy indie songs, sprinkled with a good measure of dissonance and noise.
