Tillmanns are Anders Tillman and Bjorn Fridhol, and hail from Gothenburg, Sweden. With guitars, drum machines and synthesizers they have produced an excellent debut record full of ideas and hinting at their future potential.
Title track Run is a synth driven indie-pop song of the highest order, with the sound frequencies finding their way through the nooks and crannies of the listener's brain and then down to their feet. My London Love sounds like The Field Mice meeting New Order for a few beers around Piccadily Circus. Twist (Space Out) and Background continue to draw from the band's named influences (My Bloody Valentine, The Stockholm Monsters and The Wake) and do not disappoint, both throwing up images of spiralling colours being blown across a sparse, bleak landscape. A truly great start to 2006!
