The Deer Tracks - The Archer Trilogy Pt. 3
Sometimes its hard to separate the hometown of a band from its sound. This Swedish duo is as Scandinavian as they come, with sickly-sweet vocals with dark undertones ala Bjork coupled with the icy atmosphere and glossy electronic instrumentation that evokes the barren snow-covered scenery of the country they inhabit. While not all songs are dark and wistful, some are Grimes-esque electro-pop, it is still a consistent album, cold and cavernous with Elin Lindfors’ bizarre vocals treated as an instrument in and of itself, flying and twisting along with the sporadic rhythms, melodic synth and occasional walls of droning sound.
