Makthaverskan haven’t released any new material since 2015’s “Witness” 7”, but that all changes now. The group has shared a new track, “In My Dreams”, and announced that a new album – the numerically appropriate, III – will be released in October.
“Dreams” finds the group continuing to mine the kind of swirling, cathartic melodies found on their previous work, but with a fuller sound. Reverbed guitar jangle, an increasingly active bassline and propulsive drumming engulf and elevate vocalist Maja Milner‘s plaintive upper register, now rounded out with more lower tones and a wordless purr at the 2:27 mark recalling Siouxsie. Headphones revel tubular synth notes, which add to the overall depth. The track positively shimmers, and we can’t wait for the album.
According to the band’s fbook page, III was recorded at Svenska Graommofonsutdion with the help of Hans Olsson-Brookes, and is due October 20, courtesy of Swedish label Luxury Records and US-based Run for Cover Records.
