Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The Connecting Dots. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I really liked the atmosphere that their songs are able to create.
I immediately liked the charming sounds and melodies created by this band.
In these songs is hidden an ancestral nostalgia that manages to give hope.
Listening to their songs I literally traveled with my mind and like a drone I flew over the vast Swedish forests pushing me to the most northern point where on a deserted beach I watched the sun never go below the horizon.
Beautiful production that has taken into account every detail and every little nuance.
The sounds are perfect for the genre and manage to create the right frame for these slightly hypnotic songs.
I really liked the voice with its sweet timbre that hides sexy nuances.
The use of synths from the ’80s distinguishes their sound that even if it winks at a way of making music of the past, it still manages to be modern.
Oblivious Beat is The Connecting Dots’ Album Out Now!
Great songs for a mature band!
A rock is a group of minerals bound together. A rock group is a small musical ensemble. Somehow everything is connected. From a higher point of view even the biggest building becomes a dot. One thing leads to another – and that is simply how The Connecting Dots got together.
The Connecting Dots offer a sweet mix of atmospheric synthesizers, hooky guitars and poignant vocals on their debut album ”Oblivious Beat”. Situated in Stockholm, Sweden, the core of the band consists of singer Helena Sundstrom and guitarist Johan Borg. Influences span from 1970’s power pop and new wave to timeless geniuses like Prince and David Bowie, Grace Jones, Suicide and Blondie, 1980’s pop icons such as Kate Bush and Eurythmics and more recent acts like Lana Del Rey, Beach House, Cults and Chromatics – all decanted in a delectable cocktail that could not possibly be served before the 2020’s.
