There’s a freedom to Amason you don’t run into everyday. A freedom to do pretty much whatever you want. Maybe that’s why they sound so relaxed. Perhaps not careless, but carefree in a liberating kind of way. Some of this can surely be explained by the fact that Amason from the start was a side-project for all the musicians involved. There were no pressure, just a bundle of joy, characters and glorious songs. And nothing’s really changed, even though Amason today is a top live attraction and main draw at festivals.
In August we will get the first part of a double album entitled Galaxy, and come spring we will have the second part – Galaxy I & II. It’s been a while since Sky City, the marvellous debut album from 2015, was released. We don’t know very much about the new one yet, but to judge from the first two singles You Don’t Have To Call Me and Marry Me Just For Fun we probably can expect unmistakable mellow and soulful vibes. Their Way Out West gig, the only one for them in Sweden this summer, may reveal some more. As before, the Amason members are Amanda Bergman (Hajen, Jaw Lesson, Idiot Wind), Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow), Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), Gustav Ejstes (Dungen) and Nils Törnqvist (Little Majorette).
