The Amazing Short Info


"The cream of Sweden's psychedelic/neo-folk underground” – MOJO.
“A gorgeously understated blend of gentle psychedelic pop, tranquil folk rock and gently stoned prog” – Q.
"The Amazing live up to their name in every sense” – DIY.
“This is something you absolutely need to hear, so hear it” – Stereogum.
"Picture You... is a generous two-songs-for-the-price-of-one deal, blurring dewy early-'70s soft-rock into Floydian prog pastorale (as to be expected from a band that features the guitarist from Dungen and counts Tame Impala as pals)" – Pitchfork.


The Amazing inhabit an aural landscape that’s all its own: a panoramic, constantly evolving spectacle marked by layers of intertwining guitars, richly textured keyboards and a rhythm section adept at skewed tempos and a tendency to veer off in unexpected directions.

Many words could be used to describe the Swedish quintet’s music, but one that keeps reoccurring is “psychedelic,” a characterization that Christoffer Gunrup, the band’s singer, songwriter and guitarist, dislikes. “I hate the word,” he says. “I have no relation to psychedelic music or prog rock. Reine (Fiske, one of the band’s three guitar players and also a member of Dungen) likes that prog stuff, and he’s very good with sounds, so he would be the one to blame for that.”

The mid-tempo music of the group's new record with atmospheric keyboards, twanging guitars and Gunrup’s anguished croons floating through the slowly weaved melodies is best highlighted on the title track Picture You which you can gently stream here now: https://soundcloud.com/partisan-records/the-amazing-picture-you/s-KZ1sc

The new album 'Picture You' will be released on Feb 16th via Partisan Records.
