This week’s download comes from the Swedish band The Amazing. You have seven days to download their song “Ambulance” from the new album of the same name.
On Ambulance, the Swedish band continues their journey to a place where music is free of restrictions, offering up another collection of densely concentrated melodies and fractured rhythms. The songs unfold slowly, without a traditional verse/chorus structure, spinning gauzy webs of shimmering mystery with their own inimitable dynamic of sinuous, swirling guitars; rich, ambient bass lines; crisp percussion and restrained, church-like, keyboard textures. The songs brim over with tension and more implied release than actual relief. “An ambulance picks up the wounded,” Gunrup says. “It does not mean ‘ambulance’ in the common sense. Everybody needs a bit of ‘ambulance’ now and then.”
