“Creation” is the first solo single from the Swedish rock singer Guernica Mancini (lead singer of THUNDER) and is available now through Golden Robot Records.

After forging a brilliant career at the head of THUNDERWith over 300,000 monthly listeners and millions of streams, Guernica has been working on a solo side project that can only be described as a mind-blowing fusion of rock and pop.

Watch the music video for “Creation” on KNAC.COM HERE.

Sonically, the first single features groovy guitar riffs backed by heavy drums and powerful vocals that display impressive range, clarity, and the perfect amount of grit.



“Creation” premiered on Saturday by WBC Australasia and WBA Asia Boxing Champion Linn Sandstrom as the exit song to make his UK debut at York Hall, London, for the WBA Intercontinental title.

Both Guernica Mancini and Linn Sandstrom have a lot in common; they are both strong women from Sweden who know exactly who they are and where they are going – TO THE TOP!



Guernica Mancini is one of the best Swedish rock singer/songwriters in the world.

Music has always been a big part of his life, from growing up in a church choir to forming his first band at age 14.

In 2007, Guernica enrolled at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, California, where she won a songwriting competition. This led her to record with the famous music producer Daryl Swannwho has worked with artists such as BLACK-EYED PEAS, John Frusciante and Macy GrayJust to name a few.

While at the Institute of Musicians, she formed the all-female band WITHOUT GLORYperforming at concert venues in LA as well as Las Vegas including House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, The Key Club and The Roxy.

2010 saw Mancini team up with Jeff Young (former member of MEGADETHlisten)) as the lead vocalist of his band SOULS OF 11.

After 5 years in Los Angeles, Guernica returned to Sweden and formed her own band. THE ROYAL RUCKUS. The next 4 years the band played all over Sweden and toured all over Europe.



2017 gave Guernica the opportunity to audition for the Swedish girl rock band THUNDERof which she has since become the lead singer.

Mancini was the lead singer for the last three THUNDER albums and has been a songwriter in the later ones. They have toured all over the world, playing massive festivals such as Wacken, Sweden Rock Festival, Alcatraz, Exit Festival and Reload Festival. They have also been featured on The Kiss Cruise, Full Metal Cruise and supported THE DEAD DAISIES, THE BABIES OF THE COURT and PINK TATTOO.



THUNDER is by far one of the hardest working and most touring bands in the world and Guernica is the voice of this thunder machine! In 2020, she joined Hank Von Hell on his single “Crown” from his album dead. In 2021, the group KING ZEBRAalso signed to Golden Robot Records metal label Crusader Records, asked Guernica to join them on their song “Wall of Confusion”.

“Doing something creative that is completely mine is something I have aspired to do since I was very young. It’s scary but at the same time so exciting and fun! I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity. More than anything, I feel so happy that my fellow Thundermothers are really supportive and excited for me. So now let Guernica’s single player legacy begin. – Guernica Mancini

the Rite of Spring is a score that often brings out the beast in a dance company. Loads of dancers, whips of fury, stomping to an agonizing human sacrifice. Not the veteran Swedish choreographer’s choice Ek rug, whose new version transforms Stravinsky’s boisterous music into a chamber piece about a young woman resisting her culture. It’s thoughtful but disappointing.

A wedding is brewing. The family, in Marie-Louise Ekman’s pajama outfits with pearly pink highlights, dance in rhythm but without apparent affection. Emily Suzuki’s mischievous daughter runs around the stage, hopping from side to side or heading for the exit, as if hoping to escape fate. Bad luck – she’s encased in a statuesque white dress and veil.

Marriage seems like a bargain between men – but the girl and her inexperienced husband (Fernando Carratalá Coloma) finally find some space alone. Apprehensively, they bow around each other, until the Girl throws her veil to the ground. They unfold in a tactile and playful duet, coltishly baring their bodies in private desire rather than communal duty.

The community interrupts their idyll, with devouring jumps on the ground and forbidden arms in sharp diagonals. The women beat the girl with their dresses – none with more anguish and disgust than Erina Takahashi’s mother – while the father (James Streeter) pecks her like a grotesque cock.

Dancers in Take Five Blues by Stina Qagebeur

/

Stravinsky’s frenzy suggests both the Girl’s frustration and the implacable tradition that weighs on her. Ek’s versions of ballet classics always push hard on victimization, and his Rite turns into melodrama. ENB’s repertoire also includes Pina Bausch’s cataclysmic Rite of Spring, an undisputed modern classic. It’s interesting to see Ek’s take, which resists the rushed tragedy – but despite the engaged dancing and live music, it feels like a lukewarm response to a heartbreaking score.

Earlier, Tamara Rojo’s final program as ENB director replayed two of her recent hits – a perfect pop track and a winning jazz number. Blake Works I, by American master William Forsythe, beautifully interprets classic structure through seven James Blake songs. Rigorous technique and bravery is unfolded with easy flair, alongside Blake’s melancholic voice, aching and cracking.

The dancers seem to love this piece: it’s so nice to watch. Alluring hips, swaying shoulders, big woofing leaps: virtuosic stuff, but executed with pure liquid confidence. The men are superb and Suzuki shines again, battling Junor Souza in a wonderfully evasive duet.

Stina Quagebeur extends her confinement tube Take Five Blues, on the jazzy violin of Nigel Kennedy. It’s a soft treat. Under globe lanterns with soft apricot lights, dancers slide on the ground. They could almost joke on the move; Ken Saruhashi’s pointed arms scribble in the air and the room has the fervor of a cheeky lockdown.

Has pop reached its peak Jack Antonoff? https://swedishmusicshop.com/has-pop-reached-its-peak-jack-antonoff/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 12:28:08 +0000 https://swedishmusicshop.com/has-pop-reached-its-peak-jack-antonoff/ Jack Antonoff quickly became a world-class mega-producer after working on Taylor Swift’s 1989.

In a video which went viral last week, Caleb Gamman, a video producer, guesses every song Jack Antonoff produced and co-wrote on the new Taylor Swift album, Midnights, in a few seconds. No – milliseconds. When he gets to “Midnight Rain”, Gamman hears Antonoff’s fingerprints on the track when it has just started.

Later, in a interview with Vice, Gamman said he could immediately recognize Antonoff’s sound from factors such as “vocal clarity”, “same drum samples”, “digital harmony”, and “breathing vocals”. “There are elements that I like,” he says. “But when they’re all together, there’s something that’s slightly dissonant and just a little off-putting.”

You might think Gamman is a unique music nerd. How could someone recognize an artist’s sound in milliseconds? Additionally, Swift and Antonoff are longtime collaborators, having worked together for the better part of a decade on several award-winning albums (1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore, always). It doesn’t take a genius to assume that most Midnights would continue this winning combination.

But listen a little closer to your favorite pop songs and the Antonoff sound is indeed hard to escape. Hear the breathless, blue-tinged sentimentality of Swift’s ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’ – don’t you think it could have appeared on Lorde’s Melodrama, which Antonoff co-produced? What about the quiet euphoria of “Maroon” – isn’t it reminiscent of Troye Sivan, with whom Antonoff worked on blue district? Or the muted drums on “Midnight Rain” – haven’t you heard them all over St Vincent’s Masseductionalso co-produced by Antonoff?

I am not saying that Antonoff is solely responsible for the breadth of these artists’ sounds, nor that these artists are the vessels of Antonoff’s creativity. Musicians like Swift, Lorde, St Vincent, Lana Del Rey, Troye Sivan, Kevin Abstract, Sia and Florence and the Machine are creative forces in their own right, with their own musical stamp, and enjoyed success for years before collaborate with Antonoff. But it’s hard to deny that over the past five years, Antonoff’s sound has become deeply entrenched in the pop landscape. Where it was once here and there, now it’s everywhere. It is unavoidable.

What’s even weirder is that Antonoff, now 38, seemed to appear out of nowhere. At one point, he was just a member of the group Fun (you might remember their 2012 song “We Are Young”, which had awful lyrics, such as “My friends are in the bathroom bath rising higher than the Empire State”). The next day he was working with Taylor Swift on 1989, winning Grammys and being snapped up by many of pop and rock’s biggest stars for some of their most critically acclaimed work to date. In the span of a decade, he went from being Lena Dunham’s boyfriend to being a world-renowned mega-producer.

Unlike Gamman, I’m a fan of the Antonoff sound. I didn’t listen to Swift before 1989and Melodrama is one of my favorite albums of the last decade. Lana Del Rey and Antonoff made Norman fucking Rockwell! – an iconic, experimental and delightful view of the drama. If such a thing is possible, Antonoff managed to make Lana look even more like Lana. He makes Lorde look even more like Lorde. And while Gamman identifies many of Antonoff’s technical characteristics, he doesn’t note the emotional ones: the bright colors Antonoff injects into the tracks, the swirling sentimentality, the tonal storytelling, the shimmering bursts and chord progressions. moving.

But even a fan like me can listen Midnights and realize that we may have reached a tipping point. Hearing Antonoff so often is a bit like eating the same chocolate bar every day. Delicious at first, then boring, then heartbreaking. There must be room for other sounds in contemporary pop music. If Rihanna, for example, turned around and released an album produced by Antonoff, I would get up, open my window and scream.

If you were to go on MTV in the late 1990s, you’d hear Swedish producer Max Martin’s slick, colorful, stereotypical pop hooks everywhere. The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, NSYNC…much of what looks like the 1990s and 2000s is actually just Martin: cookie-cutter, maximalist earworms. And while Antonoff may not yet be as prolific as the 51-year-old Martin, looking at today’s album charts, it’s clear that contemporary pop is also dominated by one man.

For what it’s worth, artists clearly love working with Antonoff — and not just because he can release a hit. Like all good producers, he seems to have the ability to recognize natural magic and bring it to the fore. “There is craftsmanship and there is magic”, Antonoff say it New Yorker This year. “I have craftsmanship up my ass, but all that really matters is finding those rare magical moments.” It’s a skill that artists appreciate. “Jack is special,” Del Rey told the New Yorker journalist. “His chords are so classic I could sing them anything.”

But pop music can’t stay the same forever. Styles build, they peak and they deepen, or evolve, and there will come a time when Antonoff’s sound – those breathy vocals, those sentimental synth lines, that understated yet dramatic tonal shimmer – will become painful to the ears. Maybe that time has come now. Even Martin – who produced more number ones than anyone else except Beatles producer George Martin (the former produced 23, the second 30) – loosened his grip on the charts when listeners wanted something less stereotypical, more experimental, less expected.

Until then, Antonoff’s reign remains heavily on us. And like the rest of the world, I too will stream Midnights until I’m fed up.

“We couldn’t believe what was happening to us.

Early in his career, First Aid Kit felt he had to be the best at everything he did. “As women, we thought we had a lot to prove,” says Johanna Söderberg, who formed the acclaimed folk duo with her younger sister Klara in high school in Stockholm.

“Our genre – Americana, country-folk – was for bearded old men. Going into this sphere, we felt that we had to be very serious. Prove that we know this music. That it comes from the heart.

More than a decade later, Johanna (32) and Klara (29) have come to terms with their impostor syndrome. With a string of hit albums and over three million monthly music streams, they know their worth. This explains the confidence and breeze that emanates from their fantastic fifth album, Palomino. Created in the silence of confinement, it’s a record that sees them looking to their thirties and the next phase of their lives and careers with serene confidence.

“We were accepted. We are older, more sure of ourselves,” says Johanna. “Where we started, we were grateful to anyone who wanted to come to our shows. We couldn’t believe what was happening to us. We just kept going.

We were 14 and 16 when we started. I don’t think we realized how young we were

Palomino takes its name from a class of horses with auburn coats, as often seen in classic westerns. True to that title, the project has a galloping quality that contrasts sharply with their latest studio album, 2018’s Ruins.

It was a bitter breakup album in which Klara struggled with her guilt at the end of a long-term relationship. It was furious and heartbreaking – and the boredom-riddled recording process was not an experience the sisters were looking forward to repeating.

“I felt like I did something – that I hurt someone really bad and it was all my fault,” Klara says. “Now I’m older and I can see that there are always two people in a relationship. On Ruins there was a lot of self-mockery. That’s something I don’t think is present on this record – because it is not present in our lives.

Romantic angst is still one of the defining themes of their writing. “I’ll love you even if you don’t love me,” they sing on Angel, a harmonic meditation on low self-esteem that combines exuberant melody with brutal wordplay. However, Palomino also runs with genuine joy.

The extent to which the sisters have reset is explained with the single Out Of My Head. The lyrics are a declaration of loyalty to a loved one: “But look at me, I’m always happy / If I turn to you”. It’s happiness in a heart-shaped box.

This sense of peace stemmed in part from the great silence that fell during the lockdown. Filming since adolescence, they relished the opportunity for a break (while Sweden remained wide open, their international itinerary dried up overnight).

“It gave us a lot of time,” Klara says. “With that, there was a lot of hindsight on everything we went through. It made us appreciate [their success] much more. When you’re in the eye of the storm, it’s hard to see all the good things. You’re just very, very tired, that’s what we were. Or at least I was. With a pandemic, it was a good chance to no longer take it for granted. There were no people to visit. In a way, it’s a nostalgic album that looks back on everything we’ve been through. Because nothing was happening. »

First Aid Kit is one of the great country rock institutions of the last decade, even though it hails from suburban Stockholm rather than downtown Nashville. With their first two albums, released right out of school, they were hailed as the heirs of Dusty Springfield, Stevie Nicks and Emmylou Harris, while winning over a new generation of fans in the ethereal Americana scene.

Additionally, they had an old-school hit with 2014’s My Silver Lining, which featured in TV commercials and was the closing music for Sharon Horgan’s recent Apple TV hit Bad Sisters. It was met with lavish praise – like everything else they shared with the world.

I was a workaholic. I lived and breathed the first aid kit for years. Now I can’t be in this role all the time

“Vocals transcend gender distinctions – you may not hear a more beautifully sung record this year,” Rolling Stone said of their second LP, The Lion’s Roar, from 2012. best Americana record of the year would come from two Swedish siblings?, wondered the NME

Despite all the acclaim, overnight success was a challenge for these quiet-voiced siblings. Within months, they grew from small venues around Stockholm to being celebrated by the international music press and heralded as the second coming of Dolly Parton. They were delighted with the attention – but slightly impressed too. Above all, they were determined to seize the opportunity presented to them and not let go.

“We were 14 and 16 when we started. I don’t think we realized how young we were,” Klara says. “We have a brother who is now 18 and we have some perspective. At 18, you’re not very old.

They were women in a male-dominated industry, traveling the world years before the #MeToo movement. “When we were touring as kids, we had our dad with us. That definitely helped. It would have been a lot scarier to be together,” Klara says. only after #MeToo. We talk about a lot more things now. At the time, you sort of swept it under the rug – comments or something. We are fortunate that we had not experienced anything too serious.

They also feel they have been denied a normal youth. By the time they reached their twenties, they were veterans of the road. In the decade that followed, recording and touring was all they knew. And though venues were getting bigger and bigger – they were selling out Dublin’s Olympia by their third LP – they recognize there were aspects of a ‘normal’ young adult that they never got to taste. Their lifestyles did not allow it.

“We missed some things. It was the hardest part. It was difficult for our friends too. Thank God we always got along. But it was hard to come home. Our friends were studying and we couldn’t quite understand what they were going through. And they certainly couldn’t understand what we were going through – what our daily life looked like to them.

This busy schedule put an emphasis on their relationship as sisters. They had gone from siblings to musical collaborators. At times, the pressure to succeed as the artists strained their sibling bonds (in 2015, they needed time for each other and didn’t talk to each other for months).

“There’s a lot of pressure on our relationship, because we were the only ones,” Klara says. “It’s something we have to work on – to bring our relationship to a nice place.”

The lockdown was crucial in more ways than one. Johanna had a daughter in June 2020. With Palomino, she must reconcile her responsibilities as an artist with those of a parent. Everything is very new. But, as with so much else with First Aid Kit, she steps into this challenge with a big heart and a determination to push forward.

“I was a workaholic. I lived and breathed the first aid kit for years,” she says. “Now I can’t be in this role all the time. It’s like, ‘Okay, today I’m a rock star. And then, ‘today I am a mother’. You juggle these very different lifestyles. It’s nice – and quite healthy, I think.

Palomino releases Friday, November 4

Welcome to Seven in Seven, where we take a look at the shows coming to the area over the next week. As always, whether your musical tastes are rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, heavy metal, R&B, singer-songwriter or indie, there will always be something to discover.

Here are seven of the best on the schedule for the week of October 28:

In Flames — Friday on Reverb

Gearing up for the release of their February album ‘Foregone’, Swedish melodic metal band In Flames are gearing up for what is sure to be a busy 2023, including this stop in Reading. Since its formation 33 years ago, the group has mastered the art of having a relentless drive to innovate. This resulted in a successful approach from day one and it’s something they never lost sight of despite their countless accolades and constant reinventions both musically and interpersonally.

Gwar — Saturday at Franklin Music Hall

Gwar returns to bring “The Black Death Rager Word Tour” back to North America after a European run over the summer. Supporting their latest metal opus, ‘The New Dark Ages’, the band of costumed miscreants say that human scum and bohabs will once again have the chance to bow down at the feet of their mighty alien overlords. Support is provided by Nekrogoblikon and Crobot and, like all Gwar shows, it should be messy, so bring your worst clothes.

Hatebreed – Saturday at HMAC

Hatebreed remains one of the hard rock and metal scenes’ most relevant and impactful artists with over 25 years of ruthless breakdowns, soulful anthems and poignant lyrics across eight albums and sold-out shows. The current tour celebrates the classic album “Perseverance”, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. The record remains one of the most important albums of the new millennium, so much so that the band has announced that former guitarist Sean Martin, who was a member of the band during the “Perseverance” era, will join them on the road. and at that show in Harrisburg.

Kælan Mikla — Tuesday at Johnny Brenda’s

Although they have won a large following among fans of dark and dreary music, what really sets Icelandic trio Kælan Mikla apart is the strong audiovisual adventure through their ever-evolving magical world that always leaves the crowd with a memorable concert experience. Founded in 2013 as part of a poetry contest, the post-punk/no-wave unit of the following years continued to emerge and establish itself as a solid part of Reykjavik’s popular scene by welcoming audiences into his realm of magic and mysticism.

Let’s Eat Grandma – Wednesday, November 2 at The Foundry

Let’s Eat Grandma, the British pop duo of songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and singers Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, are on the road in support of their latest album, ‘Two Ribbons’. The LP is a dazzling, heartbreaking, life-affirming, and mortal-facing record that reveals the duo’s growing artistry and ability to parse intense feelings into lyrics so memorable you’d scribble them on your backpack.

Beth Orton – Wednesday, November 2 at World Café Live

English folktronica singer/songwriter Beth Orton is making her first headlining tour in over five years after returning to stage shows with Alanis Morissette in the spring. His latest effort, “Weather Alive,” comes after the deaths of two of his closest musical compatriots, Andrew Weatherall and Hal Willner, as well as a period of misdiagnosed health issues for Orton, who soon discovered that a new clarity could also be disempowering. as hitherto unanswered questions about his well-being. The Experiments turned into an eight-track LP, the first album she’s ever self-produced in her nearly 30-year career and what she basically describes as a collaboration with herself.

Dopapod – Thursday, November 3 at Ardmore Music Hall

Leaning into a hypnotic hybrid of funk, rock, jazz, bluegrass and electronica, Dopapod has definitely done its fair share to make the world more interesting. The quartet is convinced that music resides in the fourth dimension, unaffected by the constraints and restrictions of this deadly winding. Instead, they occupy the ether, affecting us emotionally, physically, and spiritually without form or concrete form, and as such Dopapod access a heightened level of cosmic harmony in their music. Therefore, it makes sense for a music lover to put a Dopapod show at the top of their must-see list this fall.

Sound check

• In Flames: “Connected to the cloud”

• Gwar: “Berserker Mode”

• Hatebreed: “I will be heard”

• Kaelan Mikla: “Kala”

• Let’s eat grandma: “levitation”

• Beth Orton: “Friday Night”

OBEGRÄNSAD, which means “unlimited” in Swedish, is an unexpected collection of furniture that is rendered in an equally unusual Ikea coloring – all black. Obergansad is the result of a collaboration with the Swedish House Mafia.

The collection is built on the group’s ideas about the needs of those starting their musical or creative career. “Ever since we were children, we have appreciated IKEA’s approach of making things affordable and available to a large number of people. We used to find a creative way to make IKEA furniture to fit our teenage lives as creatives, so the purpose of the collaboration formed around our own personal journey in life,” says the Swedish House Mafia.

The iconic super-trio has a remarkable history filled with triumphant firsts and game-changing gestures that inspired future generations of producers, but also paved the way for countless upcoming dance artists. Plus, they did it all with less than a dozen records to release and only one real radio hit. The addition of design congratulations to the list is equally impressive and they started out as the most versatile color ever used by creatives.

There are plenty of things I use every day that are made by Ikea, the ubiquitous Swedish furniture company. With 326 stores in 38 countries, IKEA sold $23.1 billion worth of goods in 2010, an increase of 7.7% over the previous year. During covid, the furniture maker saw global sales increase by 6.6% despite closing stores during the extended lockdown. Its global ubiquity also means that this creator informs domestic life, our routines and our attitudes. When Ikea stopped selling incandescent bulbs, we all went green. When they and their collaborators embrace black, we become everyday creatives ourselves.

Target everyone who enjoys the music experience at home and beyond: music fans, music producers, DJs, and all creators with limited means but unlimited creativity. Development of technology has enabled musical democracy, and the collection aims to support the creative pursuits of the many people who create, perform and enjoy music at home.

The collection consists of more than 20 intelligent furnishing solutions for the production and play music at home – as well as solutions for listening to music and creating a a relaxed atmosphere. The Obergansad shelving unit, the KALLAX remake which is designed with extra space for amplifiers and a taller piece of furniture, Obergansad desk with speaker stands and a sliding shelf, as well as Obergansad means laptop, tablet and speakers. A mix of lighting – including ambient light in the Obergansad clock – and upholstery fabrics are essential to create the right mood and get into the creative flow. The rest of the collection includes LED works, sconces and floor lamps, a clock; laptops, tablets, speakers and record carriers; a desk, two shelving options, an armchair, four bag options including an accessory, backrest and laptop bag, rug and sleepers in two sizes, throw and cushion cover. Obergansad was conceptualized as an affordable collection with the classic black aesthetic and a sleek, minimalist design that supports technology and how it is used.
