Introducing: Len Sander


Switzerland is exporting some beautifully sensual sounds these days. Zurich's Len Sander has wooed us with the melancholy "Ungrowing" off their upcoming debut LP, Phantom Garden. The six-piece band evokes Portishead and latter-day chillwave, with Blanka Inuaen's vocals personifying a spectre from a dream. The percussion by Alessandro Hug and Markus Brutsch pin-prick the subconscious, while the synth and guitar instrumentation from Simon Inuaen, Flavio Schonholzer and Dennis Scharer coasts like gentle waves.

Phantom Garden is out February 20.
