‘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.
