Song for Your Weekend: Amason – “Went to War”

Written by

Amason is something of a supergroup, featuring members of Dungen (Gustav Ejstes), Miike Snow (Pontus Winnberg), Idiot Wind (Amanda Hollingby Matsson), Little Majorette (Petter Winnberg), and Nils Törnqvist.

Their debut EP is due out July 24 on Stockholm-based label/artist collective INGRID (also home to David Lynch, who has a new LP out soon).

Jason’s been giving this song some spins and it always catches my ear – from the opening groove to the female/male vocal interplay.  It’s reminiscent of Canada’s Stars in that it manage to be both breezy and dark at the same time.
