Look out all you post-rock instrumental bands. There is a group coming out of Sweden to rival the best bands like Explosions in the Sky and Envy! They are called Dorena. Do yourself a favor and check out their new Deep Elm release, About Everything And More. We caught them on tour to find out what some of their favorite indie bands are:
The Process (myspace.com/theprocessswe):
Furious and energetic punk/hardcore band with lyrics sung in both english and swedish. Listen to the EP “Vultures of Human Decay”.
Moonlit Sailor (myspace.com/moonlitsailor):
Uplifting and straightforward indie/post-rock with beautiful melodies. Listen to their latest album, “So Close To Life”.
Tim, Face Berlin (myspace.com/timfaceberlin):
Young and promising post-rock band from our hometown, with saxophone adding an interesting flavour. Listen to the latest EP “Youth”, and particularly the song “Dawn”.
Pop band with electronica elements and beautiful lead vocals. Check out “Obliq Feat Annelie – We come from the stars”, a live video of a new song up on Youtube.
Dan Mangan (myspace.com/danmangan):
Folk/indie singer/songwriter from Vancouver, Canada. Touching lyrics and warm melodies that makes a gray day seem just a little brighter. Listen to the album “Nice, Nice, Very Nice”
