Keeping the idea of the supergroup alive, Sweden's Amason collected the talents of some of Sweden's finest artists of the early 2000s to create some very slick indie pop that's pitched somewhere between the soft rock melancholy of Fleetwood Mac and the precise sound of Peter Bjorn and John. Comprised of Miike Snow's Pontus Winnberg on keys, Dungen's Gustav Ejstes on guitar, keys, and vocals, bassist Petter Winnberg, drummer Nils Törnqvist of Little Majorette, and vocalist Amanda Bergman of Hajen and Idiot Wind, the group formed out of the INGRID music collective. Having known each other for years, sharing stages and planning sessions, they organically decided to start writing songs and playing together in 2012. The first recorded result of their collaboration was "Margins," a single released in early 2013, then a self-titled EP in August 2013 on INGRID, which was followed by two singles in 2014, "Alen" and "Duvan." A co-release between Fairfax and INGRID, the group's first album Sky City was released in early 2015. ~ Tim Sendra
