The art print, commissioned by the band and designed by Andrew Sidford, reflects the feelings of being in transit. A note from the artist: "I wanted to convey something that was more about movement and traveling and people ‘in transit’ - and what that means to me is borders and traveling. Moving on. And the strongest visual identity for that is maps, but it needed to be nowhere and everywhere, so a non-specific topographical map showing a non-existent land seemed the best interpretation. Strong, graphic and visual so hopefully something people will want and want to keep.
The black, grey, white seemed the obvious colours based on the existing visual identity of the band, but it needed something extra, so the gold lines were added. In my head, they are the band themselves... In transit, hence the five lines of gold."
All prints are A2 size, numbered by hand, and limited to 100 copies.
The eleven tracks on The Amazing's new album, In Transit, manage to stay just out of focus. Together, they refine the Swedish five piece's signature dreamlike soundscape, and cement the band's status as one of the decade's most consistently compelling acts.
Self-produced, and recorded at Buller & Bäng Studio in Stockholm, In Transit picks up right where 2016's acclaimed Ambulance left off. The songs expands on frontman/guitarist Christoffer Gunrup's gloomy, textured vision - gorgeous tones, fed through layers of distortion in the style of The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Flaming Lips. Gunrup's fellow band members, Reine Fiske (also of Dungen, guitar), Moussa Fadera (drums), Alexis Benson (bass), and Frederik Swahn (keyboards and guitars) follow suit, melding together in a vivid combination of melody and mood.
