SONORES is a trio based on the west coast of Sweden as well as the west coast of the United States of America. They play deconstructed Swedish psych rock, based around tape collages and sample techniques rather than classic rock instrumentation. “DANCE” is  their first album in 13 years, recorded in their own studio in Gothenburg, Sweden. It straddles the previously unexplored line between oddly dense and dark foundations and light vocal pop sensibilities.
