The Swedish duo Råhypnos released their self-titled debut EP on Heptown Records May 20th. The 5 tracks are a combination of dark indie and modern pop.
The duo Råhypnos started in a simple home studio in 2015, consisting of one musician and one who wanted to become one. The combination was great and Råhypnos found their unique sound/their own sound. The shared interest in life stories and fasination / horror about people in general, and in groups, became a common denominator and an inspiration to many of the lyrics.

”Nadja and Pablo of the duo Råhypnos have only played together since 2015, but their debut EP signals they are here to stay. It’s dark and melancholic and breaths of Nick Cave, Tom Waits and a bit of Tindersticks”.
”Nadja and Pablo who form Råhypnos are able to cast aspersion without becoming vitriolic and it is the becalming nature of the sounds which belie the context that affords them impressive presence.”
/Emerging Indie Bands
”It’s underground, it’s alternative, it’s somewhat dark and it’s innovatory. This music doesn’t fall under the typical sing alongs’ category of catchy tunes – but that is not say it’s bad. On the contrary. Dwelling in a mystic air, the songs are characterized by innovative drums and smart guitar loops.”
* The combination of Nadja and Pablos characteristic voices is a big part of Råhypnos unique sound; where indie meets modern pop.
* Few bands can deliver such a straight forward and personal sound as Råhypnos.
* The lyrics questions humanity, and without being sarcastic or judgemental, Råhypnos invite you to share their exploration.

“Let’s dance to Joy Divison and celebrate the irony”
The Don Darlings opens the lid and release a first single from their forthcoming third album, to be revealed in its’ full glory this fall. The band has deepened the cooperation with producer Hans Olsson Brookes (Kleerup, Timo Räisinen) and The Don Darlings new sound has taken shape in Svenska Grammofonstudion.
A meeting between Joy Division and Nick Cave in East Berlin. Dance and gloominess. Repetetetive and cinematic. Electro and rock. Damon Collums dark, distinctive voice creates the melancholy that has become so significant for the band. As The Don Darlings now are treading new musical ground, expectations rises.
A remix of Speed Of Light by Silent Wave will be released in June.

International Women’s Day, 8 March 2016
Men’s war against women is global. It doesn’t matter whether it is war or peace, democracy or dictatorship: It’s an oppression of women. Most of the poor are women, most of the wealthy are men. The inequality is quite clear when what’s invested in gender equality work or for the improvement of women’s situation merely is a piss in the ocean in comparison with military spending as an example. Men’s violence against women is by far what causes the most casualties in our world.
