Pixie Carnation – “When Did the Lights Go Out”
@toomuchhappy Tweeted a while back: “If there was a music olympics Sweden would win a lot of golds. America would struggle. Britain would have a fucking empire.” I couldn’t agree more. Proof to that point is Pixie Carnation. Yet another outstanding up and coming band from Sweden. When will it stop? Not that I’m complaining but, my god, what’s in the water over there?
With an Americana-orchestral rock vibe, you’d be hard pressed to peg Pixie Carnation as your typical Swedish band. The unsigned group self-released their debut EP, “Fresh Poems”, in May this year and it’s just starting to hit the US. Keep your eyes on these guys.
I couldn’t agree more. There is a TON of awesome music coming out of Sweden right now. I recently categorized my music library by artist origin (definitely have OCMD: http://grab.by/Eur) and Sweden is in the top 5.
Thanks for the post 😉
You categorized your music library by artist origin? That’s so OCMD! I love it!
Yep! Sorry my link before didn’t work. Here it is again: http://grab.by/Eur I feel like I don’t have enough South American and Asian music. Any recommendations?
Also, love the blog! Subscribed 😉
Fantastic! Unfortunately I don’t have much in the way of recommendations for South American or Asian indie rock music.
