Kristinehamn, Sweden [ 2006 – present ] Oh Hiroshima is an indie rock / post-rock band formed in Kristinehamn, Sweden by Leif Eliasson and Jakob Nilsson. Leif and Jakob met in high school and quickly formed a friendship. Both of them were playing in different bands at the time, but Leif had been working on a post-rock solo project.

Since Jakob also was a fan of the post-rock genre, they decided to give it a try together, and Oh Hiroshima was formed in 2006. In the summer of 2009 they released their first EP, ‘Empty Places Full of Memories’, and in the spring of 2010 they released their second EP ‘Tomorrow’.

The band consists of:

Leif Eliasson - Guitar, drums and synth. Oskar Nilsson - Bass. Joakim Henriksson - Drums. Jakob Nilsson - Guitar, vocals, piano and synth.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
