DULL – New artist at Startracks

DULL is now officially on the menu releasing their debut singles ”This is going south” and ”Dive deep down”. The songs are bringing some serious 00’s alt rock vibes packed in a vinyl freak’s ”best of indie punk” collection. To spice things up DULL is a  band with two lead vocalists. Refreshingly new yet old. A good match for anyone listening.

Based in Stockholm, the members of the band are no strangers in the Swedish rock and punk community. Halling from bands such as Dead Vibrations, Twin Pigs, Tiger Bell, Mary’s Kids and Boris and The Jeltsins the DULL live show won’t be dull at all.

This is the first 11 tracks of the 2CD, 30 track online Album now released on vinyl for the first time.
The idea with the 2CD was to offer the very most, 107 minutes long 20 page booklet. Liner notes by the band, lots of photos. The 2CD is now sold out, and to make the full Album on vinyl it would have taken 3LP’s. So we focused on the Startracks B-sides and also left out the covers.

B-sides in the 90’s was nothing to take lightly. As singles and EP still sold well and successfully extended the Album touring with a year or two. Often recorded inbetween tours when the band was tight and on fire. B-sides of the 90’s really have that extra spark. Comes with innersleeve with most of the photos from the original CD and the original linernotes.

„Tender Arms Power Heels“ beweist, dass Post-Punk eben nicht nur der verschlafene kleine Bruder vom klassischen Punkrock ist, sondern eigene Qualitäten mitbringt – und man Göteborg als Standort für wegweisende Indie-Musik nicht unterschätzen sollte.“ DIFFUS

„Dabei spricht der knöcherne, aber trotzdem melodisch fein ziselierte Sound der Schwedinnen für sich.“  VISIONS

„Mit einem Album wie diesem lässt sich auch der engste Raum oder die dunkelste Nacht bestens aushalten: Songs wie grelle Lichtstrahlen, seliges Herzklopfen, wohltuender Krach. Ziemlich schön, das alles.“ Plattentests.de

„Fulminanter female Post-Punk und generationen-übergreifenden Noise Rock servieren Rome Is Not A Town aus Göteborg, der so intensiv daherkommt wie es einst nur Sonic Youth und die Breeders konnten.“ Tonspion

„Am Ende lässt sich also sagen: Rom mag zwar keine Stadt sein – aber alle (musikalischen) Wege führen auf jeden Fall nach wie vor dorthin.“ Gaesteliste.de

„In Zukunft werden die “Vier von der Punkstelle” aber weiterhin von sich Reden machen. Dafür besitzen ihre Songs eine zeitlose Eleganz, die über dieses bislang intensive Jahrzehnt Bestand haben wird.“ Unter-Ton

Das schwedische Frauenquartett Rome Is Not A Town verpasst dem Post-Punk-Genre mit “Tender Arms Power Heels” eine Frischzellenkur.“ Sounds & Books
„Bei der female Post-Punk Band Rome Is Not A Town darf ruhig mal ordentlich scheppern. Die Band aus Göteborg macht genau das auf ihrem neuen Album „Tender Arms Power Heels“ und führt uns vor, wie roher und teils auch rotziger Sound heutzutage klingen darf.“ Soundkartell

Fägring – Pengar – Digital Single

En till singel från den kommande debut EP’n, Rockpsalm (April 7). Releasespelning (deras första någonsin!!) blir på Skeppet, Göteborg Fre 8 April (biljetter ute nu)

”Färgstark och rak indierock om att sakna ivern och drömmarna från tonåren. Timingen hade inte kunnat vara bättre, i
rastlösa tider som dessa träffar bandets debutlåt extra hårt.” – Aftonbladet

”Klassisk indiepop med känsla för melodier och snygga gitarrer.” – HYMN

Rome Is Not A Town – Tender arms power heels – Album – March 18

The four tracks on the b-side is the EP, Living in the waitlist, who is available online. The A-side who we previously have called EP 2 is more direct, more 90’s indierock with a touch of punk to it. A digital single “Follow me home” will be with us Feb 17 and the Album drops March 18 (preorder shop.startracks.se)
