As Swedish noise quartet Les Big Byrd release their new single,Snö-Golem we look forward to a limited edition 7″ vinyl due to hit the shelves soon. The Swedish four-piece Les Big Byrd appeared in the spring of 2011 like a freshly hatched egg, if not a noisy, mind-bending, reverb-drenched, guitar-heavy drone pop egg, but fresh nonetheless.

A limited edition 7” single released ahead of their imminent European tour, the heavy ‘Snö-Golem’ is the first taste from Les Big Byrd’s upcoming third album, due for release in the beginning of 2020. The Stockholm-based four-piece show off the krautrock influences in their sound more prominently here.

Their sound is a melodic, melancholic, psychedelic masterpiece that is both manic and understated, you could pop this four in your headphones and lose whole days to it, it’s a glorious noise.

Their first release, single Zig-Smile, came with a remix by Carli Löf of Savage Skulls and Stay Gold fame and was met with rapturous applause from pretty much all corners.

Their first album, They Worshipped Cats, saw the light of day in 2014, and was described by Gothenburg Post as a heady mix of krautrock and psychedelics, and it is hard to argue with that.

The band’s second album, Iran Iraq Ikea was released in the autumn of 2018, and according to lead vocalist, Jocke Åhlund, it is about “ageing and feeling pissed off” with the wider world. If you haven’t heard of Les Big Byrd, “Snö-Golem” gives you a snippet of their heavier krautrock sound, it was released on September 19th digitally, the limited edition 7” vinyl is due on the shelves on November 29th.

Les Big Byrd is Joakim ÅhlundFrans JohanssonMartin “Konie” Ehrencrona and Nino Keller and their third LP is due out at the start of 2020.
