The Amazing Are Amazing

November 5th, 2012

Just a few years ago, Reine Fiske and Christoffer Gunrup wanted to make music without any preconceived notion of what it should sound like. So they banded together with Alexis Benson, Moussa Fadera, Johan Holmegard and Fredrik Swahn to form the psychedelic boundary-pushing group the Amazing. Their first album, a self-titled affair, came out in 2009, and its laid-back retro feel brought comparisons to ’70s Laurel Canyon. The Amazing (above, playing “Gone”) followed that with an EP, Wait for a Light to Come, and their second LP, Gentle Stream (stream it below), was recently released in the U.S. on Partisan Records. Find out just how amazing this band is tonight at Mercury Lounge.
