There’s been an abundance of new music coming out in the genre lately, and this Swedish 4-piece have just dropped We Come From Exploding Stars, the latest in what is turning out to be a beautiful succession of releases. For their fourth record, the group continue their trend of writing upbeat and catchy songs, all framed and represented by vibrant, gorgeous artwork.

The album has a lot in common with the more lighthearted moments from the new Tides of Man record, and is sometimes reminiscent of God Is An Astronaut, sans the electronic elements.

You can surely expect to have these melodies stuck in your head long after the final notes fade out, and that’s exactly how a post-rock album should be.
