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 Bowery Electric, Sneaker Pimps, Memoryhouse and Slowdive, but they still have a distinct sound of their own that’s completely unique.
”technically pristine and emotionally crushing.”
”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.”
”Shoegaze doesn’t get any better than this”
”Swedish outfit follow in the footsteps of Massive Attack for this brooding trip-hop release”
