Scraps Of Tape – Sjätte vansinnet
Scraps Of Tape. A quintet that is ever evolving and always going from strength to strength. There are no taboos or musical barriers that stands in the way of this band, one of the very best Sweden has to offer. It is a madness, the sixth, that washes over us. But do not be afraid, dare to embrace it.
Sjätte vansinnet (Swedish for ‘The Sixth Madness’) is Scraps Of Tape’s fifth album is being released February 26th 2014. It was recorded during a couple of hot summer days in May 2013, in the Malmö-based Discrete Motion Recordings studio under the supervision of Erik Sunding. The album follows a common thread that the band carefully has created via the Grand Letdown (2009) and Resident Flux (2011), the two latest albums that cemented the band’s strength in writing, frankly, ridiculously awesome rock music. It’s indie rock that wants to challenge, energetic music that invites you to a sound just beyond the ordinary and templated.
The name ‘Sjätte vansinnet’ pinpoints much with us. That sixth sense that we all in the band seem to share, something greater than ourselves, which in fact may be some kind of insanity. It is something that drives us forward and gives us so much, while also pushing us closer and closer to the edge of the abyss. The sixth madness is this incredible gift given to us which eventually will probably destroy us, but until then we will enjoy it, and ride the storm until it throws us off. We think anyone who’s ever been part of a larger creative project knows what we are talking about. This is our sixth madness.
