For their latest release Ill, Gothenburg’s Makthaverskan push the boundaries of the punk inspired dream pop they’ve masterfully executed for years.
While they have always offered a staggering and complex contrast in their songs, the band’s ability to join beauty and vitriol into an unforgettable union is pushed farther than ever before. Merging the lighthearted melody of dreamy indie pop with an undeniable post punk influence, songs like opener Vienna and Eden are the perfect stage for vocalist Maja Milner to shine. Milner sings with a vengeance on every song, soaring through unforgettable choruses on every track. The album is a collection of beautiful, bittersweet songs that are on the surface perfectly pleasant, but also contain a deeper level of anguish in them. For fans of Alvvays, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, a female fronted Mary Chain and Chastity Belt.
