Hoping to get to see them live at some point. Circumstances have prevented me from doing so up until now.

Thanks to everyone on this thread who recommended this band: amazing! Downloaded EP Lover's End Pt III the other day and have it on repeat... 24 minutes of pure prog magic! I can definitely hear Born to Run era Springsteen in the piano. Of course there's a whole heap of It Bites in there too - FD OATW era and a good helping of JM mixed in with some bonkers Yes Fly From Here keyboards. In fact the ending of the song which goes on for freakin hours is the closing credits of OATW just slightly rewritten. I can definitely hear Supertramp harmonies and there's also a slap of Blinded by the Light (errr...not the Springsteen version). Great guitar as well: spine tingling breathless riffs that don't bring you up for air til they've taken you an octave higher. Also, did I say, killer choruses (cos there's several different ones).

Actually all their music is kind of like this: this song is just a good place to start and 68p on Amazon for some reason.

Is it something in the water in Sweden as I can hear ACT Last Epic all over it too.

A good stop gap til we get some more IB, I reckon.

Really glad you like it!

I heard at the weekend that the collaboration between The Syn and Moon Safari is going to be completed in January. Album and tour in 2015!

Later next year we should also get Himlabacken Volume 2. Very Happy
