Sweden

PreHistoric Animals' fourth album, "Finding Love in Strange Places,” is a compelling 45-minute journey through nine tracks, blending heavy prog with alternative and pop music. This Swedish band has crafted an album where the complexity of progressive rock meets accessible melodic hooks, a combination that will appeal to fans of a broad range of bands, from the likes of Pattern-Seeking Animals and The Dear Hunter to Haken and Steven Wilson.

The album offers a mix of six full-length songs and three shorter interludes that together create a cohesive experience that flows wonderfully from start to stop. The structure of the album allows the listener to delve deep into rich, full tracks like "The City Of My Dreams" and "Nothing Has Changed But Everything Is Different," while the shorter pieces serve as breathers that add to the overall narrative flow. The storytelling throughout the album is engaging, portraying a series of unconventional love stories set against a backdrop of a dystopian world, which is reflected in the music’s moody, heavy riffs and atmospheric elements.
