The young Swedish rock export The Old News writes songs about being a young adult in 2017 drenched in a sound picture from the early rock era. The first single ‘LAST TRAIN’ has already been featured in Spotify's Release Radar and Discover Weekly in the US. The Old News are planning the upcoming album ‘ANYHOW’, scheduled release in May 2017!
The Old News was signed by Rexius Records in late summer 2016 and they have been working on their album ever since. Influenced by great songwriters who, like them, has been driven by a need to express honest feelings and thoughts, such as The Killers, Bruce Springsteen och The Strokes, they strive to express the everyday life. The result is songs for independent young adults who dare to choose their own path in life.
That’s when I told her I got no plans for the weekend
Maybe you could swing by and release my mind
Must have been a fool to believe it
Was gonna be that easy
‘LAST TRAIN’ is a song with the typical simplicity of The Old News: the everyday life, a boy and a girl and the void between sex, love and friendship.
