THE BLAND

Weird combinations has started to define the Swedish americana band The Bland. It’s members who just finished studying medical school and teacher educations have now moved out in the countryside to put everything beside music on the shelf. Swedish media speak of the band as creators of a new Swedish dimension in music, but that their style geographically sound more from a southern America.

 

After building a studio out of a barn The Bland are now releasing single after single and will only leave the forests when they’re touring. Recently released ’Monday Morning’ collected over 4 000 euros to finance children’s education and their latest ’Mighty Old One’ generated both praise and death threats when they stood up for solidarity in Sweden.

 

During spring The Bland went on tours in both Sweden and Germany, which generated wild reactions from both concert visitors and journalists. Among others Germany’s biggest country magazine ”country.de” praised The Bland - who are now booked for another, even bigger tour in Europe with gigs in over 10 countries this autumn.
