Behind each of the six tracks a truly hard and consistent creative labour is found, where the care for the details creates a complex whole. A great deal of the band’s strength can be found in their use of contrast: It is hard and soft, fast and slow, beautiful and flawed. All at the same time.
A Swarm of the Sun has abandoned genre, because it is the shackle of creativity. Instead, the central notions are emotions and concept. So even if A Swarm of the Sun moves behind the curtains of many different genres – and draws influences from both industrial, post rock, sludge, post hardcore and heavier rock – the band never completely enters any single stage.
