Artist: The Amazing
Label: Partisan Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 05 August 2016

The Swedish based band The Amazing - composed of members of Dungen and led by Christoffer Gunrup - continues their journey to a place where music is free of restrictions, offering up another collection of densely concentrated melodies and fractured rhythms with their new album, Ambulance...

The opener, 'Ambulance' is a chilled out '80s-esque track with plenty of spirit. It perfectly prepares the listener for the rest of the album, which contains 8 tracks (45 min, 06 sec).

In places I was reminded of A-Ha's recent output, and there's a timeless quality to the album. Yes, it sounds '80s in its delivery, but it's fresh and modern as well as delivering sounds of the '60s and '70s. The end result is a breathtaking album that disorientates the listener... in a good way.

It was an album I instantly warmed to, and the more I listened to it the more impressive it because.
