Reveries is the alt-indie quintet of Gabriel Petterson (lead guitar), Alice Axinder (vocals), Noa Åkesson (vocals/guitar), Konrad Annerud (drums) and Martin Gabrielson (bass) from Linköping in Sweden. This is the second band I have reviewed from the 104 000 strong city of Linköping and I look forward to being able to introduce everyone in due course… Unmistakably Scandinavian the music floats across […]

Good Morning Spider

Good Morning Spider is the solo musician Viktor Rinneby from Malmö in Sweden producing his lo-fi psychedelia. You may recall the name Rinneby from Turn Off Your Television, Viktor is Jon’ brother.

From Linköping in Sweden we find Gus Ring (guitars / vocals), Anders Persson (drums / percussion) and Jacob Häggberg (bass / backing vocals) who make up the alternative indie band Soundmeds. On hitting play your ears will immediately recognize the open spaces and melodic influences must be from Scandinavia. Once again we find a band exploring isolation and vastness with visual creativity through […]


Firstborn comprises of Marcus Carlzon, Joachim Ragnarsson, Max Pontén and Aron Bergström. What is certain is that the Boras (Sweden) based band know their sound. The metal that seems to be coming out of Europe at the moment is certainly recognisable; a much more clean and polished finish than what you would traditionally call metal. I […]

Karin Park

Karin Park hails from Djura in Sweden. Now based in the UK, she continues to mesmerise with the electro-house beats that wrap around the head. On live performances you will find Karin appearing with David Park. Living in Churches – Karin comes from a 400 population village inside a religious family – it does remind me of […]


Radjoteatern from Stockholm in Sweden is the electronic-indie duo of Pontus Englund and Pentti Lindén who started the band back in 2010. There is always a frisson of excitement when material arrives from Sweden, a hot-bed of some of the most avant-garde and engaging music from around the world. Radjoteatern do not let the expectations down. This music seems […]
