On the Radar: The Tranq

Relishing a nostalgia for 80s alternative rock, Swedish band The Tranq make graceful and affecting indie rock that honors some of the forgotten traditions of bands like Simple Minds, The Church, Love & Rockets,  and Tears for Fears while maintaining a firm grip on contemporary composition and production.  Singers Mikael Karlsvärd and Mattias Pehrson are as capable of channeling Roland Orzabal as they are Wynn Butler.  The Peninsula EP was recorded at the renowned Music-a-Matic in Gothenburg, Sweden (which has fashioned records for The Knife and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives) and was produced by Robin Rudén.
