Swedish indie-rock juniors Great Park Avenue with 'Blue World'
Swedish indie-rock juniors Great Park Avenue release debut single Blue World, a colourful explosion of post-punk glory.
Launched on August 28th as the first of three brand new singles, Blue World is an eruption of sound, a shimmering soundscape reminiscent of the Brit-pop glory days, representing a melancholic lyrical journey through modern-society adolescence, complete with both its expectations, and its shortcomings.
2020 has been a year like no other, and while uncertainty continues to distill throughout the music industry and beyond, Swedish three-piece MAMBO took the opportunity to re-invent, polish their sound, re-brand, and embark on a new direction as Great Park Avenue. Initially looking to breathe some life to the Swedish indie scene, the band found Britpop as the foundation of their music, their true calling, and their eyes firmly set on the UK's thriving scene. Great Park Avenue look forward to playing a part in rebuilding and expanding the revival of post punk after its glory days in the early 2000s.
Through Winter, Spring, Summer and now Autumn; Great Park Avenue have gone full circle honing their new sound, and plan to release three singles together with an EP in the fall of 2020, with the intention to be able to take their music to the live stage. To Great Park Avenue, music is made to be heard live, a place where the band are free to express, and where art meets audience in real time.
Powerful explosions of sound erupting in all directions, like the creation of a new universe. Great Park Avenue’s sparse instrumentation creates a colourful shimmering soundscape. Everything executed with utmost, sharpest and imaginative precision with dynamics held back to what can only be described as a roaring whisper. Crisp tones delivered from galaxies of sound. Classic themes such as love, hate and adolescence on the dull is sucked into the centrifuge, spat out on the floor and scraped together for you to shape.

"It’s about a girl who got herself into some shady stuff a while back. She always talked about how the future is already planned out for you, that no matter what you do you can’t change it, you’ll just have to go with it and see what happens. It’s also about a boy who feels like he can’t find the right words to properly express what he feels. Life’s either too short or too long for him, but time is relative so he will never find out which one it is. He hides, expressing himself through literature and music."
