Simian Ghost (SE)
Simian Ghost is an alternative pop act from Sandviken/Gävle, Sweden, consisting of Sebastian Arnström, Erik Klinga, Mathias Zachrisson, Maja Agnevik and Wilhelm Magnusson. Band’s first full-length album “Infinite Traffic Everywhere” (2011) (written by Sebastian Arnström alone) received a lot of blog praise and excellent reviews, topped the critics chart in Sweden and was voted record of the year by the readers at Dagensskiva.se. Simian Ghost released their second full length album “Youth” in early 2012 and it was met once again with great reviews. As the first Swedish act since ABBA they got a lead review in The Times and The Guardian even called it “an early contender for the album of the year”. Their third and latest album “The Veil” (2014) has received similarly great reviews and got compared to the sound of Brian Wilson and Beach Boys and even Pink Floyd, in its more psychedelic moments. The band has played at the London’s Camden Crawl Festival at Electric Ballroom and the Great Escape Festival in Brighton. In 2012 they also toured UK, as part of the tour organized by UK music site The Line of Best Fit.
