“’Rewind’ is a welcome return to the hazy, meditative world of The Amazing.”
“A moment of pure, clean calm from The Amazing.”
“The Amazing has a way of unspooling melodies that don’t grab you so much
as slowly burrow under your skin.”
The eleven tracks on The Amazing’s new album – In Transit, out Friday, April 6 on Partisan Records via Inertia Music – manage to stay just out of focus. Together, they refine the Swedish five piece’s signature dreamlike soundscape, and cement the band’s status as one of the decade’s most consistently compelling acts. The band reveal the news alongside driving album centrepiece ‘Rewind’ , accompanied by a beautifully pastoral music video, directed by filmmaker Jordan Martin in collaboration with artist Richard Fox.
Self-produced, and recorded at Buller & Bäng Studio in Stockholm, In Transit picks up right where 2016’s acclaimed Ambulance left off. The songs expands on frontman/guitarist Christoffer Gunrup‘s gloomy, textured vision – gorgeous tones, fed through layers of distortion in the style of The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Flaming Lips. Gunrup’s fellow band members, Reine Fiske (also of Dungen, guitar), Moussa Fadera (drums), Alexis Benson (bass), and Frederik Swahn (keyboards and guitars) follow suit, melding together in a vivid combination of melody and mood.
