Previous Nordic Playlist curators Amason release a new EP entitled California Airport Love!

We’ve always considered Swedish outfit Amason as something of a ‘supergroup’, bringing together members from Miike Snow and Dungen and fronted by the incredibly talented Amanda Bergman. Following on from their 2015 debut album Sky City, the band have now revealed a new EP called California Airport Love featuring three irresistible tracks, two of which are covers.

The first song is a beautiful cover of The Mamas and the Papas‘s classic track ‘California Dreamin’, hinting towards the band’s upcoming appearance at this year’s edition of the Coachella Festival on the west coast of the US. ‘Airport’ is an English translation of the band’s own track ‘Flygplatsen’, and the EP fades out to the tune of another cover, ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’ – the unmistakable power ballad from 80’s rock band Foreigner! An improbable choice you might say, but one which the band have executed perfectly, producing yet another set of organic pop gems!

Last autumn, Pontus Winnberg from Amason curated a special Nordic Playlist, telling us about his favourite Nordic music and his sources of inspiration. Tune in to the playlist by clicking right here
