Corduroy is a four-piece band from Norrköping (Sweden) and the similarities with Manchester don’t stop with just the factories and their own love for the Manchester scene. Corduroy makes dreamy indie pop with a big dose of reverb and hovering guitars. It’s stylish and smooth and it feels both refreshing and familiar. The distinct vocals contend with different layers from the rest of the band creating a multifaceted wall of sounds.
The songs revolve around their hometown and progress towards a post-industrial society where factories have become fancy flats and juice bars. The feeling of not being home in your hometown and the city lights doesn’t shine for you. The only things you can rely on are your friends, the music and the local bar.
Corduroy is Amanda Wallin, Olle Rosén, Martin Boström and Serafim Kristjansson.
This is one of the best shoegaze albums I have heard this year, it kind've coincided with DEAFCULT's release of Auras, so I don't want it to be eclipsed. I want this on vinyl! If there is any physical format to this amazing LP, I need to find it! Thank you for this musical gift! Charlie Mayer
