AMALIAR: RETRO INDIE-ROCK-SOUL FROM SWEDEN

Amaliar (read Am-a-liar) is an upcoming indie-rock-soul band from Stockholm, Sweden and consist of the composer and singer Jens Nelsson, the Argentinian lead guitarist and producer Natalie Knutzen, the drummer Peter Lönnqvist and the bass player Melisa Jiménez from Mexico. Amaliar refreshes a melodic, organic and rhythmical sound that can be related to rock bands from the 70′s and 90′s, sometimes with the deep and mellow nuances leading the thoughts to grunge.

Their second single and video ”Something Greater”, a catchy and soulful rock tune with poetic lyrics, was recently released by El Sol y la Luna music. Their music has spread through various music blogs both in the UK, Spain and the US. A full length album will be released in 2019.

“We have loved Amaliar live for years – they have played at our club Devolution close to a dozen times – so spinning their music on Rocket.FM was a no-brainer.”

Eric Paglia, Program Director, Rocket.FM

“Amaliar is a must listen band from across the globe [...] They bring an enigmatic and truthful nature with their lyrics, it’s like poetry but more reachable and relatable for our ears.”

“Swedes Amaliar are making soul-soothing indie rock that oozes cool. [...] They make music which is impressively poetic given that English is not their native tounge. [...] “Hang on”, seems to take influence from late 1980′s work by The Pixies in bringing together a mixture of soft and distinct sounds, leading to an overall sound which is both laid back and absorbing.”
