Lost in transaction
Ett slags därifrån
Thymeshift is a collaboration between Swedes Thomas Gunillasson, Johan Björklund, Thomas Backman and Icelander Hilmar Jensson.
This somewhat unusual line up featuring twin guitars, drums and clarinet/saxophone promises groovy, cool, wild, crazy, dynamic and beautiful music that will turn heads and twist minds. These qualities become evident on their full length debut ”Beyond Horizons”.
With complex compositions, rough beats, strange and beautiful sounds, the group produces adventurous but still very listenable music, with tunes written by all four members of the group. Additionally, ”Beyond Horizons” features some raging free improvisations, juggled and squashed into a musical tumble dryer and brought out again with carefully made edits and remixes.
