The April Skies – Rise & Rise Again

This is the European wing of the small group of bands that call themselves the April Skies. The Jesus & Mary Chain may have been the inspiration but this quartet from Bergen never threaten to emulate the white noise for which the Reid brothers have become synonymous. Instead they strain elements of their near neighbours Cats on Fire and slowly bake them with the jangliest of C86 moments. The union is particularly tasty as you’ll see from the April Skies bag of precious indie pop belters. ‘Rise & Rise Again’ should become the hallowed template for eager new bands hoping to push the twee pop envelope. Just bask in the energetic chord chime and Alexander Unhjem’s dextrous word streams. The April Skies aren’t holding back in getting their music out there and if you look carefully you can, without too much expense, be the proud owner of their complete back catalogue. KD
