Without waste of time on preliminary annoucements and promos one of the most beloved by Swedish people rock-bands Kent is releasing new single today. And when you'll give it a listen you'll understand that any promotion around this stuff is unnecessary as this EP turned to be just brilliant! I would say the best thing I've heard from Kent since "Du & Jag Döden" album was released 5 years ago. For 15 years of existance Kent received the status of the biggest Swedish favorites releasing 6 #1 albums (out of 7), loads of top-singles and masses of fans not only inside of Sweden. Three years ago band switched from indie-rock to more electronic direction on album "Tillbaka till samtiden" and on following album "Röd" released not earlier than last November. And sure such a fast next release was the biggest surprise for all fans and sure pleasant surprise. "Gamla Ullevi" turned to be a bridge between new synth-sound of Kent and more driveous and positive power of Kent from the end of 90s-beginning of 00s. B-side "Skisser för Sommaren" also differs from deppresive synth-atmosphere of last albums and being summerish, warm and maybe having some parallels with The Ark-mood.
The album "En plats i solen" will be released very soon on June 30th.
And now guess the song that is new #1 on Swedish iTunes right now.
