Simian Ghost: 2012
Yesterday saw me back where I belong; boarding a plane. This was a domestic flight to California, although every time I fly, I secretly wish I was heading back to Europe. My longing for Europe is an ever present feeling that has existed since first setting up roots in London.
To cure my insatiable wanderlust for foreign countries, this morning I stumbled across Swedish band Simian Ghost. The hazy dream pop is the perfect accompaniment to kick off my August arrival in California. What started as a project by visual artist, Sebastian Arnström, has now evolved into a five-piece band from Sandviken/Gävle. Austin independent DIY label, Red Eye Transit will be re-issuing their 2012 album Youth plus 5 new tracks in September.
Listen to their floaty new song "2012", and if you like it that much, you can even download it for FREE.
Speaking of wanderlust... check out their visually stunning video for "Never Really Knew".
