Singapore Sling - The Tower of Foronicity
The return of Icelandic Singapore Sling is upon us with their seventh studio album, recorded in the winter of 2011-2012 titled 'The Towers of Foronocity' and you will be anticipating this one for good reason. Twelve tracks of that dark, moody and broody sound that we all have come to know so well. It's like a surrealistic dream sequence out of a David Lynch movie.åÊ Walls and walls of sound, layered between darkness and light. The album contains some of the bands best songs to date, including the opening track 'You Drive Me Insane' with it's thump coming at you, it'll have you tasting the blood (of Singapore Sling) immediately. The band was born in 2000 as a result of nobody making the music that Singapore Slings Henrik Bjornsson wanted to hear. So he simply decided to make it himself, instead of complaining and doing nothing. It was born out of love and hate. Love of the various music from the past, mainly rock 'n' roll, and hatred of the majority of the music around him. He named the band Singapore Sling (after the film by Nikolai Nikolaidis) shortly before the first show in he fall of 2000. The first proper record, The Course of Singapore Sling, was released in 2002 and named 'The Course Of' because of bad luck and freaky incidents that surrounded the recording of the record. The course went on and so did they.
