"Indiemusic Review - Navelin 'side one'"

[…] leaves me shaking in the fetal position with both thumbs in my mouth. This is the best I’ve heard in a long time. If this EP isn’t Navelin’s break through, I don’t know what…

"I Heart Music Review - Navelin 'side one'"

Navelin weaves a sonic wall of magical enchantment […] honeyed vocals and brilliantly pulsing electronic production remind me of both Metric and CHVRCHES, but with a more plentiful injection of flittery, ethereal airiness…

Still working on that hot first release.



In the fall of 2012, Gothenburg based post-indie combo Navelin started to come together as a band. With members from Gothenburg (SWE) and Dublin (IRL) and a broad set of influences from indie-pop and alternative-rock, Navelin began developing their soundscapes.

With equal parts dream pop, post rock and electronic minimalism - atmospheric guitars and vintage electronics - Navelin set a backdrop against which they build a dark, yet intimate vision. It’s the twilight where dream faces (meets) the awakening, the forests edge where your senses can't separate the mornings dew from wet asphalt. A beautiful mix of darkness and vulnerability where the interaction between five unique voices become bigger then the sum of the parts.

Navelin are: Elin Johansson [vocals], Fredd Jakobsen [drums], Andy Colbert [guitars], Martin Lajsic [guitars] Rasmus Lindblom [bass].
