Noir

LP/CD
During the slow incoming spring in May 2016 these gentlemen gathered in a small cottage located in the middle of the forest a couple of miles outside their residence in Dalecarlia, Sweden. Their goal was to put 11 songs on tape, live and raw, over two austere days. And it succeeded. With total concentration and focus together with some canned food everything went very smoothly. Without having seen the light for 48 hours, they left the lonely village with 11 fresh power pop tracks. Although spring is often associated with flowers and birds chirping, it’s very dark and gloomy in Sweden during this time of year – the album title Noir felt close and self written. But the material also had gotten into a different direction.
Immediately after the members had started working on the album, some time before the recording, they felt that after all the years together they had grown as a band and the songs followed them in the right direction into a stronger and, at this time, darker environment – Noir is certainly a band album in the truest sense. Everything from the most bombastic direct numbers – Tribulation, Light up dark, Candy Donamara – to the darker ones, like the hard hitting opener Bird of the night and Chemicals – is indeed collaborations between the members.
Compared to its predecessor, Blockbuster, this album is more coherent than just a collection of songs that the band had at the moment. And because of that the groundwork on the album consistently is based on a close cooperation within the band the songs will clearly grow bigger and even better on stage.

Blockbuster

Blockbuster | LP/CD | (release date 22.08.)
The Sigourney Weavers from smalltown Luvika, in the nowhere of Sweden, have all qualities you are looking for as label: musically well educated, coupled with the perfect sense for catchy melodies. The quintet knows how to write a good song, without just copying/stealing. After releasing a limited tour single we are proud to present their second full album. On “Blockbuster” you find twelve songs showing a wider range of different genres. “Passenger” might remind you of early The Killers, slightly balladesk and opulent, with a arena rock impression. Others have powerpop hooklines, brit-pop guitars, rock influences or even ska/off beat parts that makes you think of Madness or Caesars. Great melodies with the very unique Swedish slice of melancholy.

Passenger

Coloured 7″
The Sigourney Weavers from smalltown Luvika, in the nowhere of Sweden, have all qualities you are looking for as label: musically well educated, coupled with the perfect sense for catchy melodies. The quintet knows how to write a good song, without just copying/stealing. The title track is a great britpop hymn which might remind you of early The Killers, slightly balladesk and opulent, with a arena rock impression. The exclusive flip side is a fast off-beat stomper with a unique Madness organ sound and evident punk rock roots. Limited yellow vinyl, stamped cover and hand numbered.
