Sometimes you need an amazingly crafted Swedegaze pop album, and sometimes that album will kick in your door, shower you with kisses, then proceed to back its time capsule steamroller over your face. Set your picnic blanket ablaze. Eat flowers while skydiving. Sleep beneath the waterfall. Absolutely gorgeous.


Vocalist Julia Bjernelind going solo on vocal duties, adding a new sense of linearity contrasting with Last Forever’s male-female dialogues. From the previously mentioned burners to the relatively slow numbers like “Daylight”—still pretty fast, not to mention unbelievably dense—their self-titled works as a posthumous debut introducing themselves as a collective held together with friendship, as Bjernelind claims, and marked by an aptly floral cover design. Their beach-friendly riffs seem less an act of provocation and more one of pure optimism—a welcome disposition any time of year.
