The Swedish screamo band Suis La Lune has been around since 2005 making several albums, the new one "Riala" is the follow up to "Heir" from 2008. Their sound can be described as a clash of indie rock and hardcore or as the band says -we play complex pop songs. I like the production which sounds a bit analog and live, the instrumental piece "Riala" is a real goodie along with the beautiful "In confidence", that song feels like a dark storm cloud over a silent ocean. Very colourful. Too bad the rest of the album doesn´t reach the same heights, the opener "Cornea" is also quite ok but most often the music don´t move me the way I hoped.
