|On ‘Endless Optimism’ and, perhaps above all, on “It Started with a Teardrop”, Hellsingland Underground continues to describe the world of their time, both from a northern small-town perspective and the world at large.
“We just obey the music, in which direction the music wants to take us,” says singer Charlie Granberg. “The previous record was more spacious and experimental, featured more keyboards and less guitars, which divided the fans into two camps. Some loved it, others hated it. We loved the reaction – people shouldn’t be able to paint us into a corner. Then you get stuck. We are always moving forward into unknown territory.”
‘Endless Optimism’ thus constitutes another leap forward, with a more coarse-grained and rough sound image than its predecessor.
The album will be released on November 4, 2022.
