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 onYouth, reissued by Austin’s Red Eye Transit, offer up more of the band’s signature sweet pop sound; from the honeyed harmonies of 2012 which recently premiered at CLASH 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).
Simain Ghost are celebrating the charming video for the title track Youth on The 405; the video was filmed during the band’s inaugural US trip to South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX. To achieve the timelapse imagery, the band rented out a trampoline park for the day while the festival was going on and produced a bittersweet video that conjures up the feelings of the breezy summer ending.
Youth (Reissue) is out September 9 2014 on Red Eye Transit.
