SECOND SKY, the new project featuring multi-talented Swedish musician/producer Dan Swanö (NIGHTINGALE, UNICORN, EDGE OF SANITY, INFESTDEAD, ODYSSEY, PAN-THY-MONIUM), has a inked a deal with The End Records. The group's debut album will be recorded in a little cottage on the countryside just outside Örebro, Sweden using a high-quality mobile recording studio.
Formed out of the ashes of UNICORN in 2000, SECOND SKY — Swanö (lead vocals, piano, synthesizers and guitar), Peter Edwinzon (bass, backing vocals, and piano) and Peter Damin (session drums and percussion) — "derive inspirations from MARILLION ('85-'95 era), KANSAS, ASIA's first two albums and the 'non-prog years' of bands like GENESIS, PINK FLOYD, and YES, among others," according to an official press release.
"The scope is Post-Prog with a strong emphasis on big choruses and great vocal hooks," the press release continues. "The material has been in the works for over 10 years and still every small detail is carefully selected and takes shaped at the band's own studio. In the same scope a huge emphasis is put on the lyrics with concepts that range from very personal to fiction."
