Swedish electropoppers Sound Of Arrows have been around for a while now, having released their first single Into Clouds and their debut EP-entitle Danger!-Back in 2009. Interest has certainly been there for the pair, composed of Stefan Storm and Oskar Gullstrand, with Into Clouds being one of most downloaded singles in the UK week after its release. Two years later, duo have finally got round to releasing their debut LP, Voyage. And curiosity has do anything but waver. The Band's recent single, Magic, notch up over 1 400 000 views on YouTube, showing demand was still there for duos soaring and emotive electronic sounds. The album begins with that 2009 single, Into Clouds, with its dreamy sentiment of escapism and huge soundscape acting as reminder to those who have forget, what exactly this band is all about. The Euphoric synth pop that defines Sound Of Arrows is once again prevalent on Wonders. Another luscious track, with silky vocals that are as comforting as your favourite wooly jumper. As the album title suggest, Voyage is more of an overall experience than something that can be picked apart; it is easy to immerse yourself in the bands ' all-encompassing sound. This is evident in Magic, song that has been around in demo form since 2008. Duo are incredibly meticulous, and it shows in the finished version, which should only be listened to in tandem with a stunning short-film video. The video shows two Spanish-speaking siblings awaking to find themselves totally alone in the world and subsequently enjoying their uninhibited freedom with abandon. The song manages to convey feelings of possibility that two children experience through its beautiful sonic synths and lifting melody. Duo also utilize child choir perfectly on chorus, enveloping a sensation of childhood wonder as they sing song title in unison. The album does start to seriously drag around the middle, as near six-minute epic, Ruins Of Rome, overstays its welcome. Running synths Of Longest Ever Dream also fail to reach the heights of the opening tracks, as lyrically, Storm and Gullstrand return to the dreamy sense of escapism captured in Magic. Sound Of Arrows ' second single-although technically their first proper single-Nova, manages to recapture the fun and energy of the opening tracks without losing the warmth of emotion present throughout the album. It is reminiscent of Manchester act Delphic, or one of biggest-selling electronic music acts ever, Pet Shop Boys. Conquest recalls Eurodisco sounds Of Erasure, with stuttering synthesizers giving the song a pulsating heartbeat that makes it one of the more danceable tracks on Voyage. As the album reaches its conclusion, things become a whole lot grander. There Is Still Hope is a seven-minute-plus widescreen Of Sound, which is destined to be used for closing credits of films in the near future.
