Enjoyed Amason in the shop? Then join us at The Echo on 11/03 @ 8:30 PM and see Amason again with Paul Bergmann and Wartime Recitals!
The sweet Swedes of Amason have been making music together since late 2012, and ever since the release of their self-entitled EP in August of 2013 people have been begging for an album. We will all have to wait a little longer for their debut album Sky City, which is set to release worldwide in early 2015.
But, to tide us over in the meantime, the band has just released the single "Duvan" on Fairfax Recordings and INGRID, and man, do we want more. Amanda, the female vocalist, has a soothing retro vibe, mixed with just the right amount of synth while being supported by catchy beats and soothing vibes that will calm you right down after a long day. The sound is sultry, and inviting. Amason has created a wonderful and enticing concoction, especially with the combination of english and swedish lyrics, that is very unique to the scandinavian five-piece. All of the members have their own very impressive musical talents and projects (think Miike Snow), but when they get together, Amason is a force to be reckoned with.
Label-mate and Echo Park local Paul Bergmann will also be appearing at The Echo on the third. Paul Bergmann's voice, often compared to Cash or Dylan, comes together beautifully with an eery lone guitar to create a forlorn indie-folk and dark country sound that we at OV are really enjoying right now. Recently signed to Fairfax Recordings, Bergmann's music has an air of timelessness about it, reminiscent of old western movies and stories of lost dreams told around a campfire at night. His self-titled debut EP has been making waves, so you won't want to miss this one.
This duo preforming together sounds almost too good to be true. BUT WAIT! It gets even better! The show is free! So cancel all your plans and head down to The Echo. It's a show you won't forget!
