|CD REVIEW Sonic Station|
Band : Sonic Station
Sonic Station is a band/project that sprung from the mind of Alexander Kronbrink. Hailing from Sweden he’s a guitarist, composer as well as producer.
I have to admit though that this is not really my kind of music. Even if there are a few Chicago songs I like, over all I’m not really a fan of real West Coast music, and that’s just what this band/project brings us. There are a few songs however that I like, but most of the songs are a bit too mellow for my taste.
The album starts with an intro, that they just as well could have skipped. The next song ‘I Wish I Could Lie’ however is one, if not the best – and maybe most rocky – song on the album.
What must be said however is that the vocal performances are very good. Especially the two ladies, Marika Willstedt and Tove Lo (who even reminds me a bit of Stevie Nicks), but the two male singers, Kristoffer Fogelmark and Magnus Bäcklund.
