TUNE Guds Pengar - Bussen
Malmö's Guds Pengar are back with their second single on Rama Lama Records as one of the latest additions to the label family. Bussen is out on February 19 and and the second taste of their upcoming full-length album.
Guds Pengar (Swedish for God's Money) have for the last year's been one of Malmö's best kept secret. With one self-released EP and ecstatic live shows the ever-changing constellation, with Evelina Nerstrand and Olof Stid as constant members, have build up somewhat of a cult status on the blooming Malmö DIY scene. With Borttappad, the band finally took their first step out into the light and are now back with Bussen, a song that builds on and broadens their instantly recognizable sound.
Bussen (Swedish for “The Bus”) mediates their energetic, warped but melodic, sound and adds a catchy chorus to the mix. The track treats the subject of being in your twenties, being pretentious and focusing your energy on the wrong things in life. Constantly being on the move without realizing the thing you truly need is a stable home. The band formed out of a frustration caused by the music that surrounded them at the time, Guds Pengar wanted to do music that went straight to the feelings - turning restlessness into pop music.
With a ground in classic Swedish punk and indie rock, Guds Pengar spices things up to a more exciting level with their mixture of the complex and immediate. Even though lyrics are all in Swedish their sonic power makes it hard to let go of Guds Pengar as soon as you've let them into your heart.
Guds Pengar are Evelina Nerstrand (Eveliina Pink), Olof Strid, Liam Amner (Hey Elbow) and Anton Jansson (Brigaden). Borttappad is out on February 19th via Rama Lama Records (Melby, Julia Rakel, Steve Buscemi's Dreamy Eyes etc. and the debut album 'Granar som flyr staden' is out on all digital platforms and limited pink vinyl on May 15th.
