THIS IS: Amason

The Amason was a Volvo model was a popular car in Scandinavia in the 1960s. Named after the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, Volvo adopted a Swedish spelling for its design, and the band has followed suit.

Perhaps the spirit of a female warrior coupled with the liberatingly swinging ‘60s is a suitable description of this five-piece band of Swedish-born and based touring musicians. Or perhaps their name, chosen spontaneously by Pontus Winnberg of Miike Snow, is just one aspect of this multi-talented, musically minded group of friends that first came together in 2012.

After self-titled EP released in 2003 and followed by the single "Ålen" in 2004, they released debut album Sky City for worldwide in early 2015.

Here are a few songs from Sky City (Fairfax Recordings/INGRID, 2015).
