This is The Rains second album, if we can call their first six track release as an album. Nevertheless, The Rains was formed sometimes around 2007 in the outskirts of Falkenberg on the West coast of Sweden by Joel Alexandersson and Mikael Magnusson. These two gentlemen joined forces in some kind of frustration, or as a backlash to all the hard rock and metal music that has put their hometown on the map as well as everyones desire to become superstars. The Rains did the absolute opposite.
Their music has repeatedly been described as melancholy and bittersweet. The Rains writes music on their own terms and are eager to always emphasize that everything is done with the utmost seriousness.
The Rains have the magnificent frail sound.
