En Fis i Rymden by MAG /Surplus Recordings 2 Dec 2022
MAG enchants the audience with her distorted punk trombone pop. Her second album En Fis I Rymden is now being released 2 dec on the Gothenburg indie label Surplus Recordings.
The album manages to be powerfully personal yet privately political at the same time as we dance our way through the beats with our wagging tails.
MAG is still a well-kept Gothenburg secret, who every now and then leaves the Swedish underworld and pops up at different alternative festivals and venues magnetizing Europe’s underground scene.
With her long tentacles forward and backward in time she enters the stage and performs demonically blaring megaphone vocals, seductively trombone melodies, drum machine slams, and rabbitsyntezis terror noises, creating a permissive world to marvel at.
The new album is entirely in Swedish and the title would literally be translated into “a fart in space” which is a Swedish idiom equivalent to “a drop in the ocean”.
MAG aka Magdalena Ågren is also currently playing in tree other band projects, the bands SORK Bada and the duo Trapped in a Loop. First album Magnitude was released 2016 on Zeon Light Skiva and Surplus Recordings
” She opened for us in Malmo and I’m still scraping my jaw from the floor after dragging it all the way back to The Netherlands. Marvellous, hugely inventive…. words aren’t enough”
