The Stockholm based post-punk outfit A Projection is back with an all new album on Metropolis. “In A Different Light” includes the band’s recent singles “Darwin’s Eden”, “No Control”, “Careless” and “Anywhere”. The album also includes contributions from fellow Swede Henrik Linder of Dirty Loops and Sarah Boom of the Brussels-based Turquoise.
Formed in 2013 as a post-punk outfit they are both influenced by The Cure, Joy Division/New Order, Sisters of Mercy, Interpol and Editors, and by electronic acts such as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, D.A.F. and compatriots The Knife. The first three albums by the band – “Exit” (2015), “Framework” (2017) and “Section” (2019) – developed from minimalist beginnings into a more accessible sound but with a strict post-punk aesthetic and attitude.
The band recently left the indie oriented Tapete label to join the more electronically leaning Metropolis roster for the release of “Section” resulting in a more synthesizer based style with influences from the 80s and contemporary darkwave.
Below is the video for “Anywhere”.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
