This is the absolute best track and one of the best band in the world. I could listen to it over and over again. There is so much energy in it, so much good vibe. Plus, Jona and Luke are as talented as efficient in the swiss rock scene. They used to play in The Ocean Collective and now they are on tour with the awesome Coilguns.
Here is an absolute genius. This woman has everything inside her to give away the most meaningful music played in Switzerland these days. I am completely in admiration in front of her. She can pass on so much with her compositions, and this is what music is about.
My absolute favourite band. This track just got out in january this year and I particularly love the very heavy bass middle part. They come from Toronto, and are friends for ever. They are the true essence of what a band should be. Touring no matter what, respecting people all around the world, being cool and friendly. They still love to play in very small venues even if the have huge gigs like Hellfest this year. I absolutely love those guys.
Well. Trap is usually not my thing, but I think the lyrics are very very interesting. I’ve seen this guy first gig, an acoustic one, with no mic. And it was perfect. How confident you must be to give away your music in these conditions for the first time? He produces everything, records everything by himself. I also love the graphism he does for his music. Every song has its own visual identity. It really is a whole thing. He comes from Fribourg.
I discovered The Night Is Still Young with Resonate, and completely fell in love. We have our swiss Bob Dylan!
Their album Joy as an act of resistance is the best album released in 2018. I had the opportunity to interview them, and they have a lot to say, not only with the music, but about the world they live in. They are very conscious about the new challenges we are all facing today. This song is a cover of a song that appears in the movie Dirty Dancing’s soundtrack. Joe Talbot told me he loves this movie, because it reminds him of being 5 and watching it with his mom who passed away. And I love it too. You can watch the interview here.
Tom used to sing in a stoner band called STEAK. Now he still lives in London and has his own solo project called 1403. His voice is amazing. And he wrote this song for his nan.
Zatokrev is one of the best acts in Switzerland. And Fredrik not solely owns one very efficient record label, he is also the best link we can have to the german part of Switzerland. I love it when people are dedicated to their scene, and he really is.
I created a record label 4 years ago, and we released a few album now, but this one got streamed on a very cool youtube channel specialized in stoner. They just reached 3 million views, and I am very proud of them. We put a lot of energy on helping band to release their albums without any money, so it is nice to watch some success sometimes. Especially when the music really deserves it.
Very cool band from Nyon I discovered recently through one of my chronicles on Couleur3. I talk about swiss towns and their local music scenes. They are very young and very talented, I think they deserve a lot more attention.
