Us


Us is the result of a collaboration between Andrew Montgomery, whose distinctive voice fronted the much missed Geneva, and Leo Josefsson of Swedish band Lowe. The first time I heard their dark, haunting elecronic synth based sound two words popped into my head, film soundtrack. And that is meant in the most complimentary way, with thoughts turning instantly to the likes of Blade Runner. Based in Stockholm, Us create a sound that is shaped by their influences but also manages to sound uniquely like Us. The partnership between Andrew and Leo works so well because they compliment each other, Leo's epic synth sounds feel like they have been waiting all this time for Andrew's heavenly vocals to accompany them. Good to have Andrew back recording again and, with plans to release their debut album this year, hopefully a live date in Glasgow may be on the cards in 2018.

  1. This is great (and hello again, good to see you back!) I totally agree re. the film soundtrack feeling about it - very moody and atmospheric. Will look out for more - thanks for sharing.
