Raised in the small industrial town Trollhättan, reputed for its film industry and synth/goth festival Subkult, the electro-influenced indie pop act Janice Prix recently released their debut album “Waking”, a record that carries “a natural radiance between the forest and the coast – dreamy and floating” as the German dude who introduced us to the band told us. The band have been compared to everything from Kent to Travis and, to our editor’s delight, Depeche Mode, but why compare to bands having their best years in the past when there’s something new and exciting that brings the art of music to bold new ground.
If you ever wanted that type of band painting sonic canvases with the mediums of modern technology, Janice Prix are the next level for your speakers at home with their lovely mix of indie pop, electro and alternative rock that you still will have on repeat at a BBQ party in ten years. After you’ve read this, open Spotify and listen to waking, and remember where you first heard about a band with the potential to go further than Kent (especially abroad).
