On the Horizon: Breath Brigands, Postiljonen.

Sometimes, certain things just take time. Time to contrive; time to click; time to call upon the undying infatuation they so indubitably deserve. And Nordic troupe Postiljonen are quite incontrovertibly one such thing. Comprised of Norwegian vocalist Mia Bøe and multitalented Swedish pop polymaths Daniel Sjörs and Joel Nyström Holm, the trio next month release their oneiric début full-length Skyer via Best Fit Recordings though if their discographic belonging to the notorious Swedophiles is of little surprise, then album standout On The Run conversely resonates with startling pellucidity. Like a curvilinear finger slowly motioning seductive beckoning, it’s Scandinavian musical stasis at its most inspired as doleful synths ebb elegantly underneath Bøe’s rimy exhalations with a similarly mournful quality to shards of ragged wedding dress washing up on the jagged banks of an unforgiving fjord. A right breath brigand, and one clearly worth waiting for…
