Garmisch – blocSonic Netlabel


Garmisch

Garmisch has been together for about six years now. They’ve previously released two EPs on the Swedish netlabel “Go, Jukebox!” and have on and off been doing live shows in the Malmö region. They’ve from the start been putting together a mixture of influences and ideas, still trying to find their intended style; without any intentions about ever really getting there.

Some small humans inside.
