The Amazing To Embark On US Tour, Appear On Letterman

The Amazing is set to embark on a headlining U.S. tour to celebrate the release of their latest album Gentle Stream, out now on Partisan Records. The band will also be making their U.S. television debut on the Late Show with David Letterman on January 18. Inspired by the music of the 60s and 70s Laurel Canyon community, Q Magazine calls Gentle Stream, “a gorgeously understated blend of gentle psychedelic pop, tranquil folk rock and gently stoned prog.” The band’s upcoming tour includes stops in Boston, New York and Chicago.

Gentle Stream is the Swedish band’s first official U.S. release. KCRW named the band an “Artist You Should Know,” and Spin premiered Gentle Stream’s title track, Pitchfork premiered the band’s video “Gone” and Time named the album a “Must-Listen of the Month.”

Gentle Stream was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden at Fashionpolice Studios and self-produced by the band. The Amazing is comprised of singer-songwriter Christoffer Gunrup, Reine Fiske of acclaimed neo-psych group Dungen, Fredrik Swahn, Alexis Benson and lauded jazz drummer Moussa Fadera. Christoffer Gunrup says, “One of the things I have come to enjoy playing with the others is never telling them what’s going on, what I want. It means that when we record I simply start playing something, usually without the melody, and hopefully they somehow play the way I feel.” The band completed a North American tour with Tame Impala this fall.
