Previous praise for Childmind:

”An unexpected psychedelic instrumental that will sweep you off your feet.”
– Found

”One second it’s pulsing kosmiche electronica and the next it ramps up into a heady rock mantra worthy of comparison to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. It bodes well for his upcoming album”
– Doubtful Sounds

Indeed a name for psych-rock-Sweden to keep its eyes on this fall.”
– Festivalrykten

”Childmind himself has a clear influence of early psychedelic rock, marked by his acoustic guitar following the electric guitar’s fuzz effects”
– Synths of Eden

”Glans convinces right from the start and there is much that speaks for a bright future.”
– HYMN

Childmind – Moon Day – out now!

Childmind - quotes - July 2019

”Childmind releases his debut album this fall and tempts us with his least psychedelic and most psychedelic single at the same time.”

”Here, the musical adventurousness is put to the test, which gives tremendous added taste to the upcoming album and what surprises it may contain. Indeed a name for psych-rock-Sweden to keep its eyes on this fall.”

– Festivalrykten.se

Out now: Isoberlinia – Wash

We’re very happy to present the second single from Isoberlinia: ”Wash”!

”Swedish outfit follow in the footsteps of Massive Attack for this brooding trip-hop release”
– Mystic Sons

”the band’s knack for combining moody electronica with shoegaze vibrancy is evidently laid out in six minutes of slow-moving, downbeat sounds, synchronously dim and spirited, technically pristine and emotionally crushing.” – Destroy/Exist

Happy release day: Seabiscuit – ”Turbo”

Lo-fi instrumental pop/rock at its best. A forgotten soundtrack to some movie never made.
”Turbo” is the second single from Seabiscuit’s debut album, coming out on August 15th.

Out today: Isoberlinia – Heartcage

”Isoberlinia has already with single number one begun to climb rapidly towards the top of the Swedish shoegaze mountain, and if the rest of the self-titled EP holds the same standard, they will not face much resistance.”
– Festivalrykten.se

Today we are very proud to release the very first single from one of our latest signings Isoberlinia.

Seabiscuit – ”End Up Dead”: out today

We’re proudly releasing this little gem today! A wonderful piece of lo-fi instrumental music that we’re playing on repeat at the office all day!

”The debut single ”End Up Dead” definitely makes you want to hear more from Seabiscuit.”
– HYMN

Isoberlinia signs with Black Hair Records

Isoberlinia

In a dark space between 80s/90s shoegaze and electronic music, we find Isoberlinia. This new duo from Stockholm has created a perfect collection of songs that sounds so good that it would be a crime not to release it.

Their soundscape is built upon atmospheric soothing guitars driven by electronic beats, creating an almost trip hop-feeling, and embedded within is a voice that’s as soft as it is enigmatic.

Isoberlinia’s combination of reverb-drenched guitars and electronic elements reminds us of acts such as The Bowery Electric, Sneaker Pimps, Memoryhouse and Slowdive(band), but they still have a distinct sound of their own that’s completely unique.

The first single ”Heartcage” is out on May 15th, and it’s the first taste from their debut EP that we are releasing on August 29th.

Seabiscuit signs with Black Hair Records

Seabiscuit

When listening to the Gothenburg based act Seabiscuit, you enter a strange little world of its own. The sounds captivate you and suck you in, and once you’re in – you want to stay there and hide forever.

You find yourself enjoying the forgotten soundtrack of a suggestive retro video game that never existed, combined with lo-fi guitars playing mystical adorable notes. The atmosphere created by the music tells you a story, and you can almost see it pan out in front of you. A distorted drum beat is blasting away in the horizon, and dreamy crisp chords are spreading out across the vivid coloured sky. You like it here. This could definitely be your home. Here comes the next song, and it’s a beautiful lonely guitar strumming away in the darkness, sounding as if it was played in another time. I’ll never leave this place, you think to yourself while closing your eyes tighter and tighter.

We are proud to welcome Seabiscuit into the Black Hair family and to present the first single ”End Up Dead” – coming out on May 9th.

The self-titled debut album is out on August 15th.

Pink Milk is back with the new single ”Heart of Fire”

Pink Milk - Heart of Fire

Following their critically acclaimed debut album, 2017s Purple, Pink Milk is now back with a brand-new single, ”Heart of Fire”, a devastatingly powerful and cinematic darkwave ballad – a mini-masterpiece in its own right.

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.

“Sublime electronic psychedelia”
– The Quietus

– Soundblab Alternative Music

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.
