New single from Swedish duo This Vision: "20th Century"
I love this track by This Vision. I have been playing "20th Century" on turntable.fm for few weeks. The band contacted me, so I am happy to pass along this sunny track to you. You watch the video here and download the track from Soundcloud.
About This Vision: The two men behind This Vision, singer Marcus Lantz and synthesizer player/programmer Christian Liedholm Hartmann, have known each other since their early teens, growing up on the same street in a suburban town outside Helsingborg in southern Sweden. They had both been playing music for several years when they first started playing together. Marcus was 17, and Christian 16 years old at the time. In the seven years that followed they played various kinds of rock and pop together in different bands but it wasn’t until 2005 that they first started to experiment with synthesizers and a more electronic sound under the name This Vision.
Starting out, the duo knew little about in which direction they were heading for with their music. Everything was composed and conceived during the recording stage. Even though this made the process very long, This Vision’s first EP was released in 2007.
