|This is a call to Swedish Barbeloids, musicophiles with a penchant for the Swedish and well anybody who can suggest some new, forgotten or unknown Swedish bands that might be good to listen to.|
I'll start the ball rolling, with some of my favourite Swedish bands (my tastes are quite firmly in the pop side of the spectrum, but I'm open to suggestions).
Those Dancing Days - current darlings of my ears TDD are some barely out of school younglings making some pretty decent pop music, influenced, I think, mostly by 60's girl bands.
Love is All - shouty indie pop band, fun songs, crazy fun live shows are what they are about.
Shout out Louds - melodic indie pop, some very good tunes, especially on "Howl Howl Gaff Gaff".
Refused - pretty legendary (post)punk band, maybe check out their last album "The Shape of Punk to Come" first
So other Swedish bands which are probably familiar in the UK/US:
Peter Bjorn and John
Soundtrack of Our Lives
International Noise Conspiracy
I'm From Barcelona
So what am I missing out on? Surely there must be a whole world of music that just doesn't get advertised/recognition outside of Sweden?
