Planetariet

A post-rock collective from the north of Sweden. Space is the place.

Planetariet is a post-rock band with it’s roots in northern Sweden among the northern lights and midnight sun. The band started it’s journey many years ago in the small town of Skelleftea. The inspiration comes from outer space, in other words, the music is forever changing and the inspiration endless. The band debuted in 2015 with ”Rymden”(space)

The pure feelings that Planetariet fires like search missiles aimed straight towards the listeners ears does not immediately remind you of any other post rock band, which is at least impressive, but there is a style and a finesse like ounces of jazz, resounding reverb in its own Pink Floyd- Epic Soundscape Wish You Were Here / Welcome to the Machine kind of way. It is suggestive, existentially grueling – beautiful and crisp and at the same time with such inherent latent power that it feels that even the light can not escape gravity from the black hole I travel right into when I become one with the space traveler on the finish line. It feels like I’ve been involved in a crucial discovery in some way. A giant leap for the mankind, witnessed something that you could never imagine. Just to be wiped out and get into nothing without anyone ever knowing.

about
This is the deluxe version of our album S/T, released via Discouraged Records in march 2020.

With Deluxe we’re releasing two new songs, Saturnus and 1873. Saturnus is one of the first songs we wrote when the band started in 2011. We’ve been playing it live off and on since then, but it was recorded for the first time in may 2018. It’s one of many iterations of the song, and it has changed a lot since it was written back in 2011. But the version we’re releasing now is version we all love the most.

1873 was written for Museum Anna Nordlander in Skellefteå. They reached out to us when they wanted a song written to accompany the release of a new exhibition, displaying letters that Anna wrote during her life. The letter we got assigned was written to a close friend of Anna in 1873, wondering why she haven’t heard from her in such a long time. The song was only listenable during the exhibition, and was never released elsewhere. We approached the writing process in a way that was completely new for us, and out of our comfort zone. We learned a lot, and think it’s indicative of where we’re heading with our next release.

about
ENGLISH AT THE END. ❤

De rena känslor som Planetariet avfyrar som sökmissiler siktade rakt in i åhörarens öron påminner inte omedelbart om något annat postrockband, vilket är minst sagt imponerande, men det finns en stil och en finess som osar av jazz, rungande reverb och på sina håll Pink Floyd-episka soundscapet Wish You Were Here / Welcome to the Machine. Det är suggestivt, existentiellt grubblande – vackert och skört och på samma gång med en sådan inneboende latent kraft att det känns som att inte ens ljuset kan fly gravitationen från det svarta hål som jag färdas rätt in i när jag blir ett med rymdresenären på avslutningsspåret. Det känns som att jag har varit med om en avgörande upptäckt på något vis. A giant leap for mankind, bevittnat något som ni aldrig kunnat föreställa er. Bara för att utplånas och uppgå i intet utan att någon någonsin får veta.

PLANETARIET – PLANETARIET
Picture

1/5/2018 

By Peter Boyle

Planetariet is a Swedish band based in the city of Umeå. Though the members have played together for longer than even they can recall, the project made its recorded debut in 2015 with the EP Rymden, the title meaning “space” in Swedish. Taking inspiration from the cosmic wonders of space, Planetariet has a decidedly ambient and experimental slant. Planetariet is the group’s first full-length.

The record consists of three extended pieces, all seven or eight minutes long. Having exhaustively rehearsed the album, the band recorded it as one live session, capturing the results on film as well. By taking their jam-oriented process to its logical conclusion, Planetariet bears witness to the purest vision of the band’s creative intent.

Each piece is named after a different star system; the first is “Kepler” a slow-burning track with cavernous ambience. After a prolonged period of sparse, mood-setting guitar, the traditional churn of epic post-rock introduces the awe and majesty of outer space. With washes of shimmering guitar over a heavy rhythm section, it’s easy to compare “Kepler” to chiaroscuro post-metal acts like Alcest– especially since the no-frills recording techniques create a mid-fi sound with lots of live bleed between instrument tracks. Though this may dull the shine of some of the bell-like guitar tones, and dull a bit of the impact of the heavier parts, the potency of that in-the-room ambience cultivates something so much more special than fidelity.

As “Juno” proceeds, however, Planetariet finds its one real weak point– the passivity of the simple, quiet passages can cause the listener to drift off. This is not to say that “Juno” lacks complexity or emotional depth, however. The opening drone gives way to a gentle ¾-time sway that intermittently fades and returns, with gentle plucks and the eventual maelstrom of the track’s cathartic high point. The final climb, in particular, lands nicely. Once again, the live feel of the recording brings a certain magic to the track, which also helps alleviate the issue of short attention spans. Active listening offers great rewards all over Planetariet, and this track is no exception.

​“Sirius”, though it reaches similar dramatic heights as its predecessors, has a decidedly different emotional tone; the softer passages have a warmth and joy where the others conjured more somber feelings. It’s a great closing piece, and it shows something important: Planetariet has succeeded in bringing their astronomical fascinations to life for their audience. No doubt the video of the Planetariet session is electrifying; it’s hard to imagine watching people making such ethereal music from a simple rock-band setup. The record itself will suffice, though. If you’re prone to enjoying this sort of expansive, ambitious music, Planetariet is a safe bet.

The Swedish post rockers celebrate on “Deluxe” a genre that has seldom come across as naturalistic. The show is left solely to the instruments and the arrangement. No lyrics, no singing, between the harmonizing tonagen, which are located somewhere between Cocteau Twins, Slowdive or Alcest, to cover every 4 decades of this musical genre.

The five songs with playing times between 7 and 8 minutes play thematically with the over-concepts of space and Greek mythology, which overlap etymologically again and again, just think of the origin of the Name of the Milky Way. The band released 3 songs on a self-titled EP in 2017, but re-recorded them live for “Deluxe”.

In the opener “Kepler” the namesake of the laws of the same name is honored. The strings sound very calm, the music meekly varies between dreamy passages, light Shoegaze extravaganzas and romantically transfigured harmony. The cracked undertone is sparsely integrated without overlaying the overall structure, leaving the construct its fragility.

“Saturnus” houses a very special inner life, so you can guess in the middle part light Krautrock sounds and the first attempts at walking by Kraftwerk seem to penetrate.

The last song and thus the second completely new track is “1873”, which begins very dramatically and subsequently integrates the tragedy into form-perfect sound collages with a cool vehemence. Small Tessara, sometimes confused, sometimes kristalin form a mosaic, whose elegance drips unexcitedly into the ear knuckles.

Conclusion: A very special work full of enchanting sounds. If the world were not reduced and calibrated to standstill, the perfect, set deceleration would be here. My newly incoming woman, who has mostly listened to the music, thinks to recognize a fusion of whale songs and meditation. ( andreas)

Swedish post rock band, use textures in layers of environmental, space, experimental and dark.

In his first album Rymdem we have four melodies that make a spatial immersion full of atmospheric details with soft synthesized nuances, woodwinds, traveling fingerings, drums and a striking bass that guides the journey, with sliding, sharp and precise riffs.

Its cadence is growing, harmonious, full of feelings and emotions, which makes us glimpse new scenarios and constellations with a masterly refinement.

In his second album S / T with three long structured and creative melodies where we advance the glimpse into the palpable,
with beautiful, smooth, harmonious and somber chords and arpeggios where the unknown is inevitable, and the oscillation is latent, with a euphoria transmitted by the grinding guitars.

And in the last album, in addition to S / T we have the inclusion of Saturn that mixes the environment, krautrock with fingerings and sliding riffs foreshadowing the first contact with an ethereal intensity.

And finally 1873, tearing through the entrance with evasive riffs, they chant incisively and smoothly, as if it were the first impression recorded in our journey with our fears and fears, with wonderful expressive collages and montages, keeping our search always on the horizon.

Beautiful work and collection, congratulations to the band.
