‘Fredhäll’ by Beast

Looking for the perfect soundtrack to any quite late night, then look no further then the Malmö based duo Beast who’s track Fredhäll is the ideal accompaniment to the last gentle hours of any day. The band is made up of Henrik Kihlberg and David Hagberg who play organ and digital drums respectively.

While the band is fairly new on the scene I get the impression that this track is a little more downtempo to their regular sound, and features a beautiful video edited together by band member Henrik. The footage comes from the controversial Italian documentary Ultime Grida Dalla Savana but fortunately doesn’t feature any of the shocking violence of the film, instead it shows some incredible shots of a mans encounter with a pack of wolves. While the band have only released their first track (a split 12″ with Magic State and Roll The Dice) it seems that they’ll soon be releasing new material, and with gigs in Berlin and Rio De Janeiro in the next few months we will hopefully be hearing a lot more from this duo.

    It’s one of those moments, when he reaches out and pets the wolf, that the world just kind of seems alright. Like somehow, at the root of us all, is this longing to be accepted by the nature we’ve come to fear and cage.

    Although, try telling that to Timothy Treadwell…

    Beauty, in any event.

    Wolves are such beautiful, elegance animals. I love the brief connection that was established between the man and the wolf – so real!
