Old Amica – ‘Joni’

old amica-drone and hum-artwork

Old Amica have spent Spring recording a new EP called ‘Drone & Hum’ (available from September 5). The Swedish duo grabbed a microphone and every instrument they could find, recording seven tracks of instrumental music for the release. It’s the first time the pair have recorded together in the same room (as they’re usually located on separate sides of the country). I’ve had the pleasure of previewing the EP and it’s a very special collection! ‘Joni’ is our first listen, with a video produced by Jonas Börjesson. To date, Old Amica have released three full lengths and an EP, click here to discover more.

Old Amica – 'A New Star'

Here’s a peek at Old Amica‘s forthcoming EP ‘The Burning Dot (Part One)’, available online from December 21. Its the first in a two part series, complete with amazing vocal melodies and unpredictable instrumentation. The Swedish duo released their debut EP in 2010, followed by ‘For A Second EP’ last year. ‘The Burning Dot’ is an amazing listen, at times it plays out like a futuristic Neil Young but always uniquely Old Amica (whatever you choose to define that as).

Old Amica – 'New Start'

Despite Old Amica‘s ‘New Start’ being decidely glum, it’s a brilliant track! The Swedish group have released their debut album ‘Debris’ which is perfectly suited to a late night listening session (for fans of Gem Club, The Middle East, Elliott Smith).
