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 ”” praised The Bland, who are now booked for another, even bigger tour in Europe with gigs in over 10 countries this autumn.

It’s now time for the release of their next single ”Head Oh”, with a music video recorded in the suburbs of Uppsala, among a group of youths who’ve lately been in a media storm because of an accusation of illegal use of rebuilt cars. The music video is written and directed by the genius Marcus Storm who’s caught a love story between two girls in the midst of burnt rubber and the smell of wonderbaums. Everything caught on tape with a DV-camera from 2003.

”For three days we were a part of the great EPA-gang around Heby (outside of Uppsala). A super nice gang of girls and boys who it was hard to leave behind after the filming was over. Without saying to much I can tell that we’ve learned the EPA-cars hold a LOT of power…”
– Axel Öberg, singer of the Bland
