The Rhymes with Remix // Louis Jucker & Coilguns with their second single
The Swiss artists Louis Jucker & Coilguns release their new upcoming album "play Kråkeslottet [The Crow's Castle] & Other Songs from the Northern Shores" in July
The special thing about the album is that it was recorded exactly as it was performed live during the Krakeslottet tour 2019 / 2020, on a 24-track tape. No overdubs. No edits. Four musicians in one room. All live. Now with "A Simple Song" there is a new single from the album
Louis about the Song:
I wrote that song during the summer 2012, as I was (with many swiss friends) taking part to the artijuli festival in Krakeslottet. We were in our mid twenties and the sun was never going to bed, we were painting, recording and swimming a bit next to the seals. Years later as I came back to that very special place, and began writing new songs, alone in the darkest nights of the winter, I thought of that one again, and it put a smile on my face.
The Rhymes: with new single, street action for the benefit of hospitals in Sweden & livestream tonight
Swedish stage divepoppers The Rhymes have been compared to Mando Diao, The Vaccines and U2. The band released their self-titled debut album in april, to raving reviews from both German and Swedish press.
On 29th of May, The Rhymes release their first remix ever, thanks to Swedish producer-duo KNYVIG.
"KNYVIG did a fantastic remix and since Love To Long have been played on both German and Swedish radio stations, we thought that a remix would be wonderful", says Tomas Rimeika Karlsson, singer in The Rhymes.
With all shows of the debut album tour either cancelled or postponed, Tomas have now been taking to the streets in his hometown of Malmö to perform: "These are tough times, and I wanted to contribute with what I do best: sing and perform. So all money I receive from people on my street shows go directly to lunches to the hero nurses and doctors at our hospitals right now."
The Rhymes have done over 80 gigs in Germany, UK, Norway, Finland and Sweden since the start in 2016. Singles from the debut album have been played on German, Austrian, American and Swedish radio stations.
