The Malmö based and “nature rather than genre” inspired duo Badlands is releasing the debut EP Battles Within on April 20 through Temporary Secretary Recordings, and now we’ve been treated to a stream of the whole thing via Bandcamp, where you also will be able to purchase the EP come Friday. It’s a dark, huge-sounding and experimental psych trip, but at the same time a very accessible and melodic 5-track album that grows with each listen – and it’s simply too good to be missed.

If you’re lucky enough to be in southern Sweden on May 25, do not miss Badlands’ first live appearance at the classic Malmö venue Babel.
