While most bands have multiple approaches to storytelling, Gothenburg’s Despite mainly has one focus – the present.
With lyrics dealing with the qualms of modern life there’s certainly a sense of immediacy to their material, both musically and lyrically. Despite sifts through piles of impressions provided by today’s overwhelming flow of information to identify relevant subject matters. There’s always something new going on in the quiet and secretive Despite-camp, and there is constantly something that triggers their anger and urge to speak. Something new is always going through elaboration. Prepare your introduction to the polyrhythmic soundscapes Despite roams with an undeniable presence.
