Twin Shadow

Was listening through his album on the plane. I love it!!!
Tyrant Destroyer is one of my favorites. His songs are definably reminiscent of a bunch of other music I love.

Ethical fashion design!














Not alot of brands are thinking Eco friendly these days but Rianne De Witte works with only sustainable fabrics.

Istanbul from the sky so beautiful!




















Our Istanbul show was.... well lets just say not the most amazing experience ever. A bit corporate but nevertheless we love the city and cant wait to come back.






Back home in our studio awaits......... the biggest mess ever!
Re packing for summer X-mas vibe thing in Australia! Gothenburg was soo cold!












Arrived in Hong Kong this afternoon. A bit dazed.
I think we are staying in the middle of shopping heaven.

The Altruist



Were proud to have our music be part of Camille Hardman movie The Altruist which reveals the ongoing battle of Cambodian children fighting poverty and foreign pedophiles. Everyone working on this film has done it non profit and I truly admire Camille for her hard work and dedication to reveal the stories of these children.
Please support her film and check out her website!

Kathryn Gibson





Kathryn Gibson and Crispin Andersson (our sound engineer ) moved to Falköping Sweden from London a couple of years ago.
Guess they were tired of city hustle and drawn to the nature and the quite.
On there visit they found a abandoned church from the 70ties that they decided to move into.

As Crispin travels around with us playing shows his lady is home in the forest making some crazy jewels!
I love her work because its so unique and experimental, some of her pieces make sounds while others are just plain beautiful and sculptural.
Her materials vary from wood to silver to random objects that she finds and gives life.
Ive been sneaking around a bunch of her new pieces and they make me wanto be part of a scifi dream.
Cant wait to visit when home and check out her studio in the woods!

Zhou Fan




A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachures and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality. /Zhou Fan

Swedish Election day

Oh cloud of jetlag, I miss the road already seriously canNOt wait to play you guys some of our new tracks that feel so excitingly unfamiliar...Im a bit freaked out but its all gooood.

yoyo's


At soundcheck in Basel one of the guys working at the place had a yoyo that he was doing tricks with. Me and Erik were in trance and basically couldn't get our eyes of the thing. Seriously this field has evolved ....yes I used to have a yoyo like many others but it wasn't really that high tech. Being in the bubble of writing music makes u forget these little gadgets that used to take up your time as a kid. Check out this yoyo master, I like the wooi sounds of awe in the background lol!

Prince Roskilde 2010


What what what...I was so determined to see Prince at Roskilde this year but it ended up not working out with our schedule.
It all started when I was seven and my parents went to a Prince concert without me!
So here I am eyes glued to youtube sad over the absence of this memory.

Jean Paul Knott



This morning when the guys were sound asleep in dream land I got a chance to visit Jean Paul Knott's studio.
Tried on some special pieces and It was fun! Yes I will go back next time Im in Belgium.
Didn't meet Jean Paul himself but met his very sweet and helpful assistant Barbara and she guided me through his gear.
Alot of his pieces had a japanese inspired feel and the fabric was so soft made you want to drown into them.
