the story of the sound of arrows is as follows. two friends - a musician, stefan storm, and a film-maker, oskar gullstrand - live in a boring town in sweden. one day, they begin making music together as a fun thing to do because there were no films left to talk about. inspired by vangelis and french disco, they make this music mainly with analogue synths. after a couple of little eps, they make a single that people like. (that people really, really like.) they go on to make an album. their debut album 'voyage' therefore, as could be expected, is perfect. it is a complete, enveloping experience, charting a topography of desire, solitude, loneliness, friendship, love, romance, hope and escape, using familiar emotional minutiae for its landmarks and re-imagining them as cosmic adventures. they take every quaint little thrilling moment you've known and make them as grand as you felt they deserved to be, turning them into a million tiny explosions in the sky. this is widescreen pop, indeed; and the effect is intentional. hidden in every track are moments of minor euphoria, testament to our perfectionists%u2019 arduous crafting. 'voyage' is an album made to flow like a film, starting and ending with the title theme.
