Danish band Kindsight make music that draws from 80’s and 90’s alternative rock and combines it with the shimmering Scandinavian pop that the region has become so renowned for, resulting in a sound that is both fuzzy and melodic in equal measure. Releasing their first material in 2020, the up and coming four-piece have been quick on the rise, picking up steam with a series of new singles over the last 18 months. Now, they are announcing their debut album, Swedish Punk, will be released on March 25th, 2022 via Rama Lama Records.
Alongside the album announcement, today the band has shared new single ‘Sun Is Always In My Eyes’. There’s a real coming of age charm to many of the tracks on Swedish Punk, not a single song would feel out of place on the soundtrack of a 00’s indie movie, each leaving the listener drenched in the nostalgic optimism of summers gone by. ‘Sun Is Always In My Eyes’ is an unrelenting indie-pop ear worm. Recalling a time when life was carefree, the band say the track is about ‘stealing money from your mother and feigning to run away from home. Being blessed and unable to see because you’ve got too much sun in your eyes’.
Kindsight formed when front-woman Nina Hyldgaard Rasmussen and guitarist Søren Svensson bonded over a shared love of The Sugarcubes. They went on to recruit bass player Anders Prip and drummer Johannes Jacobsen and over the past few years have earned a reputation within Copenhagen’s thriving indie scene for their exciting live shows.
On the album’s title, Rasmussen says “Swedish Punk’ was an off the cuff term our producer, Adam, came up with when we needed a working title for a new song we wrote during the recording sessions. Our bass player, Anders, then wrote some lyrics based on the working title and we ended up liking the whole ‘Swedish Punk’-thing so much it became the name of the album”.
Swedish Punk is a truly addictive debut, steeped in optimism, wit and melody. A treasure trove of charming and infectiously catchy indie songs, sprinkled with a good measure of dissonance and noise.
