Do you remember Swedish indie supergroup Amason? The band boasts quite a few talented members, including members of Miike Snow, Idiot Wind, and Dungen, among others. Amason has announced their debut album Sky City, due out January 27 via Fairfax Recordings. They’ve also dropped a video for reflective, intoxicating synthpop single Duvan, an opulent, retro flavored gem that’s very much graceful and ornate. Amason made their American debut last month at CMJ, and they’ll be back for a tour in 2015.

OFFICIAL VID: Amason – Ålen

March 8, 2014

INGRID label supergroup Amason consists of Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Amanda Hollingby Matsson (Idiot Wind), Nils Törnqvist, Peter Winnberg (Little Majorette), and Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow). Quite the roster indeed. We heard their tune Went To War last year, and now they’ve released a stark but captivating animated video for their bewitching song Ålen. I weighed whether to share the tune since the video came out on Wednesday, since it’s completely in Swedish and I can’t understand a word of the lyrics. In the end, the pastoral beauty of the enchanting song won me over. It’s too beautiful not to share. If you missed Went To War last year, or just want to hear it again, check it out below Ålen. I love it so much.

This might be the most charming, heart melting song I’ve heard yet this week. It just swept me off my feet. Check out Amason’s Went To War, a gorgeous little duet that is so endearingly good. When the vocals first kicked in, I couldn’t help but compare the female vocals to a gentler Karen O with a dash of Victoria Legrand. Then the male vocals kicked in and the delicate horns filled song became even better than I first thought, since I adore sweet duets. There’s a Stars like quality to the seemingly playful song with dark undertones.

Amason is a supergroup made up of Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Amanda Hollingby Matsson (Idiot Wind), Nils Törnqvist, Peter Winnberg (Little Majorette), and Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow) on the Swedish INGRID label. The funny thing is, I don’t even remember how I ended up with a tab open to Amason from earlier. Ah, but who cares. I just hit the repeat button endlessly. And I’m about to again. This is one of those tunes you can listen to all day long. Watch the rustic, bright clip for the song below.
