After Antennas previous, and very successful, album "Feeling
Feline Tonight" (which topped several indie charts in Europe)
the singer decided to leave the band. Johnny Persson, the songwriter
and "engine" of Antennas, decided to step in himself and
the band became a duo.
Writing of new songs comminced and now their third album "Neanderthal"
is done and will be released after the summer. First single off
the upcoming album is "No Forever". We quote the excellent
Absolut Noise blog because they summed this single, and what Antennas
are all about, up quite well.
"Inside, you will find a great chorus, an unexpected saxophone
and Nina Kinert on backing vocals. Quite a good recipe. Sure there
is some beauty in it, but the most interesting piece stands in the
dirt. Cause the song is much less “nice” than what most
of Swedish pop bands usually do. Well, actually, I am not even sure
you can call this “pop” music. It’s too much deranged
to be pop. That's what makes Antennas unique."
