    I just wanted to give people a heads up on this band. I'm proud to know all of the people in the band and I think they make really amazing and quite unique music, so I figured maybe someone here might enjoy them. :)

    Shimmering is a really cool and a bit more calm song (rest of their songs are in the link under the song)

    They have gotten great reviews for their EP and for their gigs in our country, so I hope some people who like strange music might like this. :dude


    What do you guys think? there is a lot of a bit more underground music like this in my country and a great music scene for it, but a lot of the bands we have are quite different from a lot of other places like the US. It would be fun to hear what people from other countries think. :munch

    Cool that you like it!

    Has there ever been a poll on the gear page before about what the majority of the people listen to? probably has... It just seems like there is very few fans of a bit "alternative" bands and indie bands, shoegaze bands and such... it seems like it's a lot of the same rock, blues , jazz artists that gets talked about over and over and over.

    there should be like a recommended part or something on the site, where people can talk about new music and bands they would like to recommend and such. :phones

    But doesn't anyone think that would be a good idea, to have a genre under "The Gear Page Lounge" called "Heads up" or "New band and artists" or "unheard bands" or something like that, where people could show new bands and artists that they listen to, that they don't think many has heard before????

    I kinda feel like that is missing here. There is a lot of unheard talent in this world, and i'm sure everyone here knows about some of them!

    Very cool band. A bit of a Cocteau influence which is great.

    Really cool that people actually like it! when I usually show it to people, they just don't get it at all! They are very influences by My Bloody Valentine, and other bands like Maribel, Serena-Maneesh, Beach House, Blonde Redhead, Radiohead, Deerhunter and such.. Now you have some other cool bands to check out as well. :munch Might like some of those if you like the DrĂ¥pe stuff.

    Serena-Maneesh is just crazy! (Also Norwegian)

    Single: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT_uwSI01Hc
    More Noizy song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02xB1da-Mb0

    Maribel:

    it's fun to promote a little bit of Norwegian music:D

    It rarely becomes known in the US. :huh
