"Something you've heard before....but still, like nothing else."
The shoegaze, dreamy pop of the early 90's is back. And back big time in the shape of the Swedish band, Sad Day For Puppets.
If, like me, you loved the days of Ride, Lush, The Sundays, Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jnr,and the like, you cant help but love this group.
Ahh the memories.
Harriet Wheeler. Emma Anderson. Miki Berenyi. Wonderful!
The band have been together since 2006. They are singer Anna Eklund, guitarist's Martin Kallholm and Marcus Sangren, bassist Alex Stevenson-Metes and drummer Micael Back.
Proper 90's sounding guitars, fuzzy, feedback chords, that's the sound of the track "Marble Gods". The AA side, "Big Waves" is a more dreamy affair, a love song with layered harmonies a slower build up to yet more indie guitar strumming, beautiful in every sense. The tracks are refreshing and exciting to hear.
The single is a prelude to their forth coming debut album "Unknown Colours" which is due for a May release. Other new tracks can be heard on their myspace www.myspace.com/saddayforpuppets
They supported MGMT last year in Sweden to rave reviews, so expect to be hearing plenty more of the 'good old days.'
Its pure 90's guitar based indie rock. Love it..........
