New single from Childmind: ”Crystal” out now!

Childmind - Crystal - cover artwork

Today, we’re releasing our very own Childmind’s new single ”Crystal”. It’s the second single from the debut album that’s coming out next year. Have a listen on Spotify.

Included in the release is also the lovely slow track ”Hello Apocalypse”.

Childmind continues to refine psych rock and with his second single ”Crystal”, Hannes Glans – the mastermind multi-instrumentalist behind Childmind – takes the rhythmic experimentation one step further with groovy odd time signatures while also flirting with folk rock sounds and guitars that let the mind wander off to innovative classics like Zeppelins ”Black Mountain Side”, still letting influences from the likes of King Gizzard and Unknown Mortal Orchestra shine through.

The Cell - Daybreak Dreams

The dark techno artist The Cell is back with a pulsating track suited for those late and hazy summer nights post sunset. ’Daybreak Dreams’ is as industrial and gloomy as it is warm and dreamy, and features the voice and collaboration of electro artist Mira Aasma.

“Sublime electronic psychedelia”
– The Quietus

“This is lo-fi taken to its extreme. It makes Guided By Voices sound like Dire straits, it’s f###ing brilliant… fans of MBV, Cocteau Twins, shoegaze and lo-fi noise, in general, this could be your album of the year.”
– Soundblab Alternative Music

“Assured psych-pop that matches extreme dark against shades of pure light… a dense but intoxicating experience.”
– Clash Magazine

Childmind signs with Black Hair Records

Childmind

Childmind is the alter ego and wildly creative outlet of psyche-rock multi-instrumentalist Hannes Glans.

With equal amounts of playfulness and groove, he mixes influences from King Gizzard and Unknown Mortal Orchestra with guitar harmonies, odd time signatures and improvisation in a way that would surely make Frank Zappa nod approvingly.

Hannes sings and plays all the instruments on the debut album that is due out later this year on Black Hair Records, and the first taste of the album is the single ”By Design” that comes out on June 1st.

On June 8th, Childmind will make its first show and perform live as a band on Pish Club at HPKSM in Gothenburg.

THE CELL – Nanopath

The Cell

Today we’re releasing the first single from THE CELL! ”Nanopath” is a dark hypnotizing industrial techno track, inspired by the gloomy winters of Scandinavia.

New signing: THE CELL

The Cell

Today, we’d like to welcome THE CELL to Black Hair Records! The first single (out this Friday) is so dark that some magazines just can’t write about it.

Sprung from the sound of dark Berlin techno, The Cell is a new artist on the scene, exploring and reinventing the genre while dwelling in the new generation of techno. The Cell’s dark industrial minimalistic sound is inspired by the gloomy winters of Scandinavia as opposed to the sunny beaches of Ibiza, and the first single ”Nanopath” is no exception.

”Nanopath” will be released this friday (December 15th), and here’s what some people have to say about it:

”Deep penetrating dark techno”
– Swede + Sour

”The track is super cool. That dark and industrial sounds are amazing and well mixed. Unfortunately, the track is really deep and dark, too underground for us.
– The Groove Cartel

”A dark one, but good”
– Zone Magazine

”Interesting stuff”
– Skrufff.com

”Nice funky techno!”

Purple

”This small band has produced one of the most consistently great post-punk albums of the year.”
– THE INDIEPENDENT

”‘Purple’ as an album is a heady mix of everything that was right about shoegaze and stoner- rock.”
– HEAR ME RAW

”Purple does not follow a formula, and that’s what makes it appealing on first listen, just like the first listen of Psychocandy – it offers something different yet attractive.”
– SONGWRITING SPOTLIGHT

”På ytan är debutalbumet Purple mörk, murrig och klaustrofobisk, men efter ett par lyssningar framträder ett ljus som hägrar och förför.”
– HYMN

”Pink Milk have created a completely unique and refreshing sound”
– SONIC NEWS

”one of the most anticipated among rock fans this year”

Recorded in Gotland, uncontaminated by outside influences off the coast of Sweden in the freezing Baltic Sea, Pink Milk’s debut album, Purple, is the culmination of three years hard labour which has already seen rave reviews for their singles from Kerrang, BBC 6Music, Amazing Radio and Virgin Radio. Though occasionally (and rather lazily) described as shoegaze in some quarters, their sound is a lurching cosmic beast firing off solar flares from all angles, attempting to fill every available space with their elephantine, reverb-laden sound.
