Makthaverskan – Demands

I was wondering if we would hear from Makthaverskan after the recent Westkust single and a week later what do you know? I don’t think this band are ever going to fail to deliver and this is straight up, dyed-in-the-wool, indiepop. If you ever wondered what Bjork would sound like fronting The Primitives then give this one a go! Thoroughly wonderful. Demands, which will be backed by Onkel, will be out later this month on 7″ vinyl/digital via Luxury Records. Pre-order it here. Facebook Continue reading Makthaverskan – Demands

It’s available on 10″ vinyl (1000 copies) or on CD complete with extra track (but no mention of a tacky badge!).
