The title to this song is sort of nicked from the famous Danish poet Poul Borum.
He was a force to be reckoned with within the Copenhagen punk movement in the 80s - both as a poet and a harsh critic. The story goes that he, as a 4-year-old, walked down the street with his Mum and was overheard saying in a clear voice: "Does Mother think it will be all-day rain today?"
The sentence seems to have stuck in (((S)))'s mind for many years and so the lyrics are an elaboration from there on.
"Mama, do you think it's gonna rain all day?" is the first single from the upcoming album with ten brand-new songs expected to be released later this year.
The single is now available at our website, Bandcamp and all major digital music stores and streaming services.
Today February 25th, 2022 Principe Valiente's highly acclaimed album "Oceans" is being re-released as a limited red colored vinyl edition by the French label Manic Depression. The vinyl is available at the band's Bandcamp page, Discogs, Aenaos Records and Poponaut.
"...like a My Bloody Valentine album cover. The result is appropriately atmospheric and entirely watchable. Who doesn't love a band who sound like a combination of Joy Division, New Order, and Psychedelic Furs anyway…" (promonews.tv)
"Almost makes us think of what might have happened if Interpol had doubled down on gothier elements in their early records." (idieyoudie.com)
"'Wildest Flowers' fuses elements of our favorite New Wave and synth-pop bands – namely, Bauhaus, The Psychedelic Furs, Editors, and Interpol – in a way that is fresh and inspiring." (therevue.ca)
"I've had the album for a few weeks now, and what's great to see is how with each listen, it grows ever more enrapturing, changing with the different moments of day, or environment where you listen to it. It particularly takes on new depths when listened to at night, seemingly it's natural habit, but again always with that perfect glint of light and hope." (flushthefashion.com)
"Led by the wine dark, dramatic vocals of bassist Fernando Honorato, they manage to wear their influences proudly on their sleeves (Cocteau Twins, Cure) but still create their own musical vision." (echoesanddust.com)
"Oceans" sounds like a modern new-wave production. But the most important thing is not how you would define this album; it simply is a great piece of music composed by a band, which deserves more recognition!" (side-line.com)
The Search is one of Sweden's best kept indie secrets. Singer, guitarist, and lead singer Razmig Tekeyan has been putting out his beautiful melancholic rock music under the name for decades. What started as a band that almost made it big back in the early 00's became a solo project that reached its peak with the latest critically acclaimed effort "Heart's Racing" in 2020.
Now it's time for The Search to be a band again. Erik Nyberg (bass), Stephen Burt (lead guitar), and Johann Bernövall (drums) from the band's hometown Uppsala in Sweden join Razmig Tekeyan and release their first work as a four-man band. The new album "Extras" will be out on February 25th.
Recorded during the pandemic, the new work offers sticky indie rock songs like "Writing on The Wall" as well as Razmig's perhaps most daring songwriting adventure so far called "Halt". The lyrics tend to look for meaning in midlife relationship struggles and isolation. Introspection versus the will to get out there and smash the world in pieces. "Extras'' is a call to arms to everyone out there who wants to be something more than just extras in their own life.
While working on new material for the next years full-length album, (((S))) came across some old playlists containing songs from the first two albums "Ghost" and "Phantom" and realized that with modern technology some of these songs could be revised and brought back to life. The freshness and vitality they maintained after all these years coupled with his upgraded equipment led to a richer and more fulfilling sound. The result is a 10-song-compilation named "The World Of (((S)))" to be released on 28 December 2021.
Touching on The Jesus & Mary Chain, Joy Division and The Cure, (((S))) is refreshingly relaxed, surprisingly easy, danceable, and so reminiscent of NEW ORDER in the ‘00s or the late works by Adam Ant. The Scandinavian singer's songs "Mesmerized" and "Lonely Is The Lighthouse" are irresistible wave-jewels, "In A Shadow Of A Shadow" and "A Crying Shame" enrapture with their dark atmosphere and the unexpected Beatles-Cover "Help" is more than a surprise: it gives the impression the original was recorded by Pink Floyd.
Back in 2009, when (((S))) found himself alone in Austin, Texas, little did he know that the debut album would be awarded one of the world’s best releases of the year by music journalist Mick Mercer on top of all the attention it had been receiving from music magazines and radios around the globe. Now, 12 years later, you can listen to an even better version of (((S)))‘s most prominent songs.
