We’re really excited to announce the release of the new 7″ by Hemgraven consisting of 2 tracks; Saudade & Jag går hårt åt min kropp och tvingar den till lydnad. “Saudade”( An untranslatable Portuguese word, meaning something close to “a feeling of nostalgia for something you know you cannot go back to”) is a melodic and sophisticated new wave-gem where the static beats and chilling synth melodies beckons you to dive deeper into the dark waters of doomed nostalgia. “Jag går hårt åt min kropp och tvingar den till lydnad” (“I subdue my body to obedience”), on the other hand, is a one-way trip into the physical world – a full- on assault of sweaty, angular and industrially tinged punk-funk where the spirit of Suicide/ Alan Vega haunts the production.
This single is released on vinyl in Europe by Peter Out Records and in the US by Mass Media Records, and it’s pressed in 500 copies on transparent vinyl. The digital single will be released by the bands own label Eldsjön.
