The Amazing fell far from the tree. A natural process: coming together through affection, then slowly crystallising into a folk-rock-psych-pop- collective slowly pushing, bending then playing with any preconceived notions of pop. Friends first and foremost, it's this kindred spirit that imbues the band's debut with a feeling unlike that of most releases ' one of natural harmony, persistent progression and with a panoramic gaze fixed on distant settings. Their 2009 debut album has received unanimous critical acclaim worldwide. Some excerpts: 'the cream of Sweden's psychedelic/neo-folk underground'an album of rare beauty'' MOJO 4/5. 'Swedish underground supergroup's debut suggests the dusty riches of some long-lost LP locked away in psychedelic folk-rock Valhalla.' SPIN. ''a sublime debut... genuinely an amazing album'' UNCUT 4/5. ''The Amazing's first is a gorgeously understated blend of gentle psychedelic pop, tranquil folk rock, and gently stoned prog'' Q 4/. ''a classic case of strength in diversity, blurring the boundaries between folk-rock dreaminess and psych splendour'' WORD This album with an all-encompassing sonic soundscape of groovy electric folk rock, psychedelic pop and heavy jams. The core musicians in The Amazing are Christoffer Gunrup, Reine Fiske, who doubles as the lead guitar wizard in Dungen and who's solos so furiously it's as if something's trapped inside him that must be turned into melody or he'll burst into flames, Johan Holmegard (who doubles as the drummer in Dungen too) and Fredrik Swahn. The intimacy permeating through the collection intensifies itself steadily in the music they produce; swimming idly through the groups twisted melody, yet luminously anchored by Reine's astral guitar. Elsewhere they forgo interstellar for a more bucolic revelry, built upon acoustic laments and a male and female vocal ripple that could only have spread itself outwards from Sweden's forlorn beauty. With special guests including some of Sweden's finest musicians; Gustav Ejstes (Dungen) and Moussa Fadera (Life on Earth!) amongst others, nothing on 'Wait for a light to come' is introverted or overworked ' everything is balanced, kept together by natural melodies, soulful vocals and just how perfect should be. 'The Amazing' is a feeling, an organic consequence of something that effortlessly came together, the start of a quite extraordinary tale.
