What’s the story?:   A swede and an englishman formed this band in 2007. The first EP album is titled “The Thief and the Heartbreaker”, filled with semi-acoustic gems with a sound so familiar, its like its been with you your whole life. Absolute classic. The second album “Broken Side of Time” is electric and more of a Kings of Leon-lite affair.

Sounds Like:  Travis riding a Band of Horses back to the ’70s.

The gateway song:  “Hard Breaks”

Other songs:      Low Man

                                Lucy Rider

                               

(Basically the whole first album. Just buy it!)
