I went to watch the great Amason at the weekend. Amason was founded in December 2012 by friends Gustaf Ejstes (Dungen), Amanda Hollingby (Idiot Wind), Nils Törnqvist (Little Majorette), Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette) and Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow). The band started as a side project away from the other bands the musicians play in, the project is driven by the ambition that music shouldn’t be so hard to create…

The band members bring equal parts of their past to the present when they create music, which shapes the music in a unique. The music can’t really be described or put in a specific genre…you just have to listen to and make your own opinion. Amason has no real future plans, they just want to play because they enjoy it and because it feels right. So let’s hope they enjoy it for years to come!

Amason was nominated to a Grammis award for ‘Best new band’ this year, and we can see why…really very good!
