“My Rainbow Eye” Reveals Realms of Infinite Possibility for Alt Rock Band Sweden Ice

By Daniel Warren Hill

“My Rainbow Eye,” is the latest cinematically orchestrated and atmospheric single from rock duo Sweden Ice. 

Imagine you are watching a movie in the theater, but having closed your eyes you can still visualize every frame because the music and the dialogue are delivering an equally crystal clear picture of what the filmmakers intended to convey on screen. That is what it is like to experience the electronically influenced Alternative Rock sounds of Sweden Ice.

Sweden Ice formed in 2020 at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in Stockholm, Sweden; launching its first single, “The Light in The Tunnel,” an optimistically aligned Indie Pop track encouraging listeners to find their own way through darker times. “Who Are You,” the band’s sophomore single, was released as both an ‘Extended Version’ and as a ‘Rock Edit’; two very distinctive versions highlighting various influences and Sweden Ice’s multifaceted exploration of genres.

“My Rainbow Eye” builds tension immediately before opening up to soft vocals expressing sentiments of personal responsibility and accountability; signifying how an individual who maintains and expresses their inner light has the potential to have global reaching effects. 

Never give away Never give away the sun of tomorrow / Never give away Never give away the trace of forever / Never give away Never give away the sun of tomorrow / You can be the one You can be the one of us to believe in /You will be the one You will be the one who shines a light 

Touching on the concept of the ‘rainbow eye’ in the chorus, though fully supported thematically throughout the rest of the song, Sweden Ice lyrically alludes to looking at the world through the prism of your mind’s eye in order to stay open to possibilities, and better understand the shared experience of our existence with one another. Standing out is the observation that even though we consider the moon a ‘lesser light,’ it is actually an amazing opportunity to witness the glory of the sun. 

Into the twilight We hide all night / Into the moonlight We look at the sun / Am I the only one / With my rainbow eye

“My Rainbow Eye,” by Sweden Ice reminds listeners of our infinite potential within the vastness of the space. Check it out below, and find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify and YouTube.
