What’s bloggin’ in Sweden, Martin Thörnkvist? (part 1/4)

We are super proud to be partly based in Malmö, Sweden. It’s an inspiring place for both music and startups! More and more frequently friends from overseas ask us for recommendations of Swedish music blogs and channels that are good at highlighting new upcoming Swedish music.

We’d like to lighten up this week by adding some lovely music spots for you to hangout online. So we’ve reached out to some of our friends asking them for their top 3+ places to go to for their weekly Swedish music shot. We’re calling this mini-series “What’s bloggin’ in Sweden?” So the coming four days, starting today, you will hear from four lovely and inspiring friends of ours: Martin Thörnkvist, GNUČČI, Patrick Larsson and Ladyfest!

Turn off Your Television – Save all the liars

Save all the liars

I have had the honour to follow these guys for quite some time now. I am glad that they were one of the first bands to get booked by their fans through Emues!

–  Turn off Your Television, Biography 

Being born and raised on the Swedish west coast, far up north in a tiny fisherman’s town, I find some of the tracks on their new album ‘Save all the liars’ as a expression to depict the rough winters and the cold hard ocean winds. No matter if you are born and raised in a nordic country like Sweden, I strongly recommend you to put this album on your playlists and book them for a concert during the winter.
