The Swedish electro-experimental band Beehive Plains is a side project initiated by Twice a Man-member Karl Gasleben, who is joined by Peter Davidson and Olle Niklassen.
The musical journey “Tape”, a unique sounding fusion of electronic and acoustic instruments, found its starting point by means of a found cassette tape that contained a recording from inside of a beehive. After various listening sessions, Karl and Peter detected tonal and rhythmical patterns hidden deep inside the buzzing sonic texture.
The outcome, made with synths, electric bass, flutes, sax, and some additional percussion, is a psychedelic outing: groovy but otherwise hard to define and an overall strange kind of electronica.
