Eric Strand of Stockholm neo-psych outfit The Orange Revival details newÂ side-projectÂ MedistationÂ & announces debut 12" EP
We're super excited to announce yet another Scandinavian addition to our roster! This time around it comes in the shape of Medistation, a new side-project from Eric Strand of Swedish outfit, and fellow Fuzz Club Family, The Orange Revival. Rumbling out of Stockholm on a cloud of reverb and feedback, Medistation deals in hazy noise pop that sounds like the best band Creation never signed.
Eric actually began the project back in 2014, when he began recording a few songs which were never to surface. After a few years, he finally ended up his first official release - a five track self-titled 12" EP that we're delighted to be releasing on April 20th. The EP is a collaborative effort, Eric helmed most of the songwriting duties but it also boast guest vocals from Jake Garcia (The Black Angels), drums fromÂ Cobian Modeste (The Buttertones) and grand piano fromÂ Max Groundstroem (Samling/Valp ).
On the EP, Medistation channels the sluggish razor-sharp guitars and commanding vocals of the Mary Chain with glimmers of ethereal noise-pop that falls somewhere between the gospel-psychedelia of Spiritualized and Primal Scream before Gillespie discovered acid-house and amphetamines at the turn of the nineties. It's a visceral, reverb-soaked journey into fuzzed out alt-rock/noise pop that leaves you desperately wanting more.
