Odd supergroup of the week award goes to Apparatjik which is made up of Coldplay’s Guy Berryman, A-ha keyboardist Magne Furuholmen and Mew singer Jonas Bjerre. The band got together to record for a charity compilation and have now quietly released a debut album which is a mix of ethereal vocals, electronics and Scandinavian pop.
