Scandinavian garage rock meets bluesy licks on Åskväder’s new single ”Don’t Worry”
Scandinavian garage rock meets bluesy licks on Åskväder’s new single ”Don’t Worry”. An uplifting track inspired by the untroubled mentality commonly found in the group’s hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden, ”Don’t Worry” follows Åskväder’s late 2022 single and video release ”Cyclops”. Both of these new tracks were recorded during the second half of 2022, and are out now on all streaming platforms via The Sign Records.
Åskväder on ”Don’t Worry”:
Don’t Worry is a song that came to life whilst Martin was noodling some jazz stuff on a beautiful summer night not long ago. The song is based on a sophisticated melody that ventures through a landscape of notes seasoned with a catchy groove and finally it concludes in a powerful chorus. Our thought of spicing things up included a key change, the first one in the history of Åskväder, preceded by an energetic yet tender guitar solo and we are very happy with the final results.
We have created a bombastic and epic piece with beautiful lyrics about solving existential anxiety with a “Don’t Worry (about it)”- mindset, something we commonly do in our hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden
Electrifying Swedish rockers Åskväder makes thunder and lightning through music. Well balanced seasoning to the sound of the 90s Scandinavian rock scene mixed up with smoking hot riffs drenched in bluesy licks and catchy refrains. Adding thundering drum and bass groove with a topping consisting of elaborate vocal harmonies Åskväder is Swedish and can be translated into ‘Thunderstorm’. That says it all. No fuss, just straight Rock n Roll.
While capturing some of the influences from the legends of our time such as The Hellacopters and Turbonegro Åskväder manages to stay in their own lane, creating their own style of rock for a new decade.
Hailing from the west coast of Sweden, Åskväder released their debut EP ”Quick Fixes” in 2018. In 2020 the band joined forces with The Sign Records for the release of their debut, self-titled studio album. In 2022 Åskväder returns with their second full-length effort, ”Fenix”. The new album takes the Åskväder sound heard on the debut album to a new level. Mixed by Kalle Lilja & Per Stålberg (Welfare Sounds), who truly put an intense vibe to the album.
Åskväder was formed in 2018 and consists today of Kammo Olayvar with his lightning speed bass grooves, Tim Ferm on drumrolls, Albin Sörensson on lead vocals and Martin Gut bending guitar strings and singing harmonies. Look out for Åskväder who released their second album through The Sign Records in March 2022.
