MYHR (Sweden) - ‘I Would’ (single)
I can’t deny I’ve found it difficult to get going this week, I know there’s light somewhere in the distance, it just seems a rather long journey to get to it. I need live music and warm beer in an impossibly small and cramped venue.
So I’ve been listening to a fair few lo-fi melancholy releases that seem to suit my state of mind, and I quite like this release entitled ‘I Would’ by MYHR, a Swedish project that have a quietly intriguing approach to their songwriting.
They’re are a duo comprising of Pierre Corradini and Uma, although they bring in other musicians where needed, and they’ve recently been working with Thomas E Frank and recording at Ljudvalvet Studios – I think Jacques Labouchere may have done some recording there, but I’m frequently incorrect about such detail . Now there’s very little on MYHR online, and my inevitable google search simply resulted in companies promoting HR systems. But they can be found easily on Spotify, where they’ve released a series of tracks, and an EP entitled ‘Stone’ last year. Go check it out.
New song ‘I Would’ was released just over a week ago, and it’s a minimalist affair which doesn’t demand attention, gently atmospheric vocals offer a meandering tune against a prominent bass line and spaced out electronica. It’s as if they’re hoping we’ll just quietly meander into their little world, rather than them shouting into our chaotic noisy version.
