One of my favourite bands in Sweden are Les Big Byrd, made up of Joakim Åhlund (Teddybears and Caesars), Nino Keller (Caesars and The Slaves), Frans Johansson (Fireside) and Martin Ehrencrona. Their sound is a mix of experimental indie-rock with neo-psych and synth-pop flavour! This combo works really well together and makes their sound real interesting.
Their debut album They Worshipped Cats, was released through Anton Newcombe’s independent label A Records earlier this year. They meet Anton Newcombe in a record store in Stockholm when Brain Jonestown Massacre was on tour and he invited them to record in his studio in Berlin, the result you can hear below!
Les Big Byrd are due to play during Way Out West this year, so if you’re going make sure not to miss them! They’re great live and Jocke wears the coolest gloves I ever seen!
