Youth (Reissue) is a new version of Swedish indie pop band Simian Ghost’s 2012 widely acclaimed album, now with five additional bonus tracks.
Formed in 2011 by musician and visual artist Sebastian Arnstrom, the band’s debut album Infinite Traffic Everywhere topped the Critics Chart in Sweden. Now expanded to a five piece including brother Erik Klinga on drums, Mathias Zachrisson on guitar, Maja Agnevik on additional vocals as well as Wilhelm Magnusson on bass, the band has shared stages with Mount Kimbie, SBTRKT, Tony Buck and Niki & the Dove among many others.
The five new tracks on Youth, reissued by Austin’s Red Eye Transit, offer up more of the band’s signature sweet pop sound. Recently the previously unreleased track 2012 was premiered at Clash Magazine. From the honeyed harmonies of 2012 to the joyful breeziness of Echoes in Your Heart, the new Youth tracks exhibit the musical qualities that have earned them the title of “…one of Sweden’s most interesting pop acts to come out this year” (Noisey).
