A merger FüNF amiable gentlemen - Rasmus Flyckt, Emil Gustafsson, Magnus FolkÖ, Tim Formgren, and Jacob William Sjöberg - Forms the Swedish quintet urbane Cone. The former high school friends from Stockholm captivate with their teen effervescent enthusiasm which makes their songs at least as sympathetic, as the band members themselves. Their plated as with confectionery choruses and their bouncigen pop earwigs slide and meander through disco guitar licks and synth electrohooks. your songs will sound as they were made for the conquest of the charts. But behind the dazzling facade shows music, in the cold atmosphere of Scandinavia.
"A large part of the year it is dark in us, which greatly influenced our music. Music to write, is to deal with our way of refrigeration," says Flyck. "When the sun shines, it is so" Hey, let's depend the whole day on the beach, instead of working on our music. "But when it's cold, you need to make you your own heat."
Cheerful, energetic pop songs with a kind of sunshine attitude, made for the dance floor, lead by the soon to be released debut internationalAlbum "Polaroid Memories". "Sadness Disease", a mix of casual synthesizer sound, squealing back beats and rough vocals.
"Come Back To Me "(a duet with Tove Lo) Shows the softer side of the band, with rows over old lovers who have become friends. "Never Gonna See You Again" sounds like a leisurely stroll in a neon sunset, squealing guitars culminate in percussion sounds, indicating that the album "Polaroid Memories" can be seen not only as a pure electro album.
Behind the dazzling façade several emotions enveloped show by a shadow - just a little darker than the average pop hit. "Please do not be different," implores the narrator of "New York City" when he returns to the place he began to idealize, in the fear that it can not meet the high expectations. Even the name of the album "Polaroid Memories" is inspired by the melancholy thought that everything, even our own thoughts, one day will vanish. The songs sound like sunshine, but behind it appears dark.
In winter, in early 2010, the band put urbane Cone already its foundation when she fOr whole six months rehearsing before they presented their work to the world. It was not only the youthful enthusiasm, who led the band. After the completion of her first songs ( "Urban Photographer") they realized that they had created something that should their previous band experiences surpass.
"The memory of our first trial is still very present," notes Sjöberg, "When we played the first time together, was something magical in the air. It was like a love story. We knew this could go really through the ceiling. "
After four years together, the group is always engaged musical boundaries to overcome, united in the development of new sounds by attempting to use instruments in a different way or entirely using new instruments. Their common goal? The boundaries of the expected crossing.
"When we write new music, we love the sophistication and the use of non-traditional sounds," says FolkÖ. "Sounds that you've never heard before and ask yourself: What's the case?" We Are Skeletons "we sampled Rasmus' cat and packed into the song I do not think that a cat is often used as an instrument especially.. important for us is to produce new sounds and to define new ways to make the music. That's what makes us different. "
