Dungen: 4

photo: Karl Max

Dungen has been at the vanguard of Swedish progressive rock since 2001. Led by Gustav Ejstes, the main composer, singer and instrumentalist, they continue to explore the meandering soundscapes peppered with the occasional guitar outburst. Their latest album 4 is more jazzy and sometimes even poppy than its predecessors, while retaining the seventies classic rock of feel of Pink Floyd albums like Obscure By Clouds and the output of Mike Oldfield.

Gustav Ejstes doesn't play any guitar on this album, bringing his piano chops to the fore. His vocals are carefully floating on top of the tracks, serving as an extra instrumental layer.
