Introducing Storbritannien

In Swedish Storbritannien means Great Britain, but this band is instead from the town of Gothenburg in Sweden. I had not heard of this 4-piece band before and something got me hooked when I got a mail from them earlier today.

Storbritannien formed in 2010 as a 3-piece and last year singer Camilla Wallöe joined and now they're back with their second EP "Taiga". This EP could be their bigger break-through I hope. They do electro-pop with Swedish lyrics by Camilla and the lyrics are more poetic than many other bands within the same genre. I would say that they are a kind of mix between two other Swedish acts; Veronica Maggio and Kent, and that's not a bad thing.

Here is the video for the single "Min Sista Syn" (translated: "My Last Sight").

Buy the EP over at iTunes and if you got yourself a Spotify-account you can listen here or down here below on SoundCloud.
