We Are Only What We Feel
NoNoNo

Krim are possibly the hottest band to appear this year. These bunch of Swedes-no, not Americans or Canadians-play modern contemporary hard rock with a pop edge that requires your undivided attention. The first single ‘Faster Than Grace’ is currently out in Sweden only although all three songs plus the untitled e.p are available for free download at krimonline.com. What’s so special then about bunch of Swedes playing modern rock? Firstly the production for an independent release is superb and it’s got the songs to match. If Puddle of Mudd were to play the best songs that Prime Sth wrote, then this would be the result. ‘Faster Than Grace’ is heavy modern pop at its best ‘Play the Odds’ is its equal, whilst you won’t find a better quasi-ballad than ‘Atmosphere’…ever! The crushing ‘When You Cry’ or the quick fire ‘Rocket Machine Gun’ offers further evidence that there really isn’t much else about in the middle of May that can impress like Krim. If they can write a whole album of this kind of material it will set a benchmark for this kind of music. Outstanding!
