Porto Geese – The Best New Band in SWITain.

Okay so this is the new band I’ve heard in ages. They’re from Oslo (Norway – Yes way)- I’ll let them tell you their story as they know it better than I do

“Joar Renolen and Bendik Øvrelid got together in Bendik’s studio with some very loose thoughts on starting a band, ending up with a an amazing genre bending result! Porto Geese turned into a multifaceted project mixing noiserock, deathrock and industrial rock with glimpses of post punk and shoegaze. ”

So I haven’t done this in a while and apologies to Porto Geese as this nearly slipped through the cracks!

I hope the guys don’t mind but I’m sharing “Void”, the opening track of their amazing Debut EP “Close” – out since Feb on Sheep Chase Records. Crashing guitars, ice cool vocals – they simply make a beautiful noise but full of hooks and melody.

And then if that leaves you wanting more check out the whole ep! You won’t be disappointed

I’m a big fan – 300 SWITS out of 300.

Porto Geese are: Joar Renolen (vocals, synth), Bendik Øvrelid (guitar), Halvor Eggen (bass) and Lars Hagensen (drums).
