TUNE Delsbo Beach Club - Cryin' (Such a disgrace)
In 2017, Stockholm based Delsbo Beach Club established themselves as one of the most promising names on the Swedish indie scene. Debut single All The Way Home was released in October and saw the band quickly earn a spot as the second most blogged act worldwide on Hype Machine. Since then, the band's charming indie pop have been hailed by both Swedish and international press. Debut EP "Four tracks & a burger" was released back in January and the band is already back with their second EP "A burger in Åkersberga", out April 26. "Cryin' (such a disgrace)" is out April 2 via Rama Lama Records and is both Delsbo Beach Club's most energetic track to date and the last single of the forthcoming release.
On "Cryin' (such a disgrace)", Erik Björklund's howling vocals is yet again a vital part of Delsbo Beach Club's fuzzy indie pop, finding it's irresistible strength in the guitar and synth-driven melody. The EP was recorded in a DIY tape-studio in Åkersberga outside of Stockholm with the ambition to give their music a bigger live feeling. The result is an exciting development from a band who's already proven themselves as one of the most interest Swedish indie prospects. The two EP's will be released on vinyl as "Two burgers and an LP" on April 26.
Delsbo Beach Club started out as a solo project by frontman Erik Björklund, with a long-time fascination of DIY and bedroom-pop Erik recorded the demos in his new room and set the ground for Delsbo Beach Club's charming sound. After a few line-up changes the band, apart from Erik, consist of Alexander Kuronen (drums), Oliver Murley (guitar) and Stas Neylik (bass), but the EP was recorded together with Jesper Jonason (keyboards) and Ebba Vikdhal (guitar).
Erik about the EP: "To record this EP we traveled to the outskirts of Stockholm to a place called Åkersberga, from their we traveled even further to Båtstorp. In Båtstorp lives a close friend to our bass player Stanislav Neylik, a friend who's dad has spent 20 - 30 year on building a studio in their basement as a hobby project. And it was in that studio we started working on this EP.
The name on the EP is somewhat of an inside joke within the band due to our almost dangerously heavy consumption of hamburgers. I think the downfall started when our new rehearsing space turned out to be 50 meters away from McDonalds.
The instrumental parts are strongly influenced by all kinds of modern indie band. Some influences worth mentioning are Mac DeMarco, The Growlers, Shannon, The Clams, Mild High Club, Loving and a lot of other fantastic bands. The lyrics treat a lot of different relationships I've experienced, old friends and old "flings". A mixed bag so to say."
Cryin' (Such a disgrace) is out on all platforms April 12 via Rama Lama Records (Steve Buscemi's Dreamy Eyes, Melby, Cat Princess, Chez Ali etc.). A burger in Åkersberga is out on all platforms on April 26 together with a limited vinyl consisting of A burger in Åkersberga and Four tracks and a burger.
