NEWS: INVSN Announces Fall 2017 Tour with Brooklyn Vegan

June 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The Beautiful Stories is a creative construction between five musically seasoned Swedes, notably the duo of frontman Dennis Lyxzén (Refused and (International) Noise Conspiracy) and longtime collaborator Sara Almgren ((International) Noise Conspiracy). Other members of the band contribute solid musical attributes. The propulsive percussion and the literal synesthesia produced from additional vocals and experimental keyboards are done so by members Anders Stenberg, Andre Sandström and Christina Karlsson.

 

The electronica meets punk aspect of The Beautiful Stories is welcomed in the West. Giving listeners a New Order feel, INVSN has toured with notable bands that exercise their right to include electronics in their range of sounds. On bills with bands like Echo and the Bunnyman has helped affirm their aspirations to explore electronica, while touring with bands like Minus the Bear and Against Me! help contribute to their post-punk credentials. The Beautiful Stories continues the on the “avant-garde path” forged by these folks, highlighting political strife and struggles of the everyday person.

 

INVSN has always had a political message, but few other songwriters have the ability to add additional dimensions of existential struggle and soul-searching like Dennis Lyxzén. In our time, when many moral and deeply humanistic values are being challenged by right-wing movements all over the world, INVSN is a necessary outcry from a counter-culture that has far from given up.
