Stockholm duo Skriet seem to have listened alot to Joy Division and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, just judging from the most apparent parts of their sound. The singing however moves them far from these bands. It seems to draw mainly on the swedish tradition, with low-fi vocalists like Thomas DiLeva and Olle Ljungström and their controlled wailings. The combination does sound like Arcade Fire sometimes though... Most significant about this band however is their patience, so rare these days. This band has the time to let their songs rest in themselves.

Their new album, Det beslutande organet, was released in October to extremely favourable reviews in Sweden. If you have spotify, give it a listen, and keep in mind it isn't the fastest most immediate music you'll hear this year. Perfect for this time of year really.
