We used all our sound designer skills to create this ambient pop song with voices and percussion only. Happy and proud to release it today!

With heavy use of vocoders, samplers, pitch shifters and effects, I guess you could call it "Electronica without synths"

We're happy to announce the premiere of our very first real music video!

Big thanks to Magnus Ekström and Urusai Media for your great work!

We perform the song My Bleeding Heart, made solely with voices and sounds from percussion instruments, for example an udo drum and a  pitched thai gong for the bassline.

"The Swedish indie-dance duo Sounds like Friday released their debut EP on the 11th.
The eponymous five track release extends a gracious arm towards the audience and invites them onto the dance-floor to join in with the light textures which fill the room. Ranging from popular music to funky-soul the duo deliver an EP to take out anytime there is a thought of a party.
The middle of the five tracks - My Bleeding Heart - is my pick of the release as it is the most complex and slowest on the EP with vocal showcased inside ringing instrumentation."


Thank you, Tim Whale at Emerging Indie Bands blog for this beautiful review!

When we worked on our EP we really felt we wanted to continue exploring the field of using vocals and percussion only. We, as well as the reviewer above, felt there was something extra about the song My Bleeding Heart, which was made this way. So this is what we're experimenting with right now.
We're having so much fun focusing our sound designing skills on all things possible to do with voice sounds and playing rhythms on things like beds, floors, pieces of wood and cans, and look forward to sharing the results with the world further down the road!

Last Friday we  went to Gavle with our pop project Sounds like Friday. Half an hour of direct radio broadcast of interviews (in Swedish) and the pop songs from our November EP (in English). We brought bassist Gunnar Schenk and filmer Kristin Dahlén and had a blast. Big thanks to them and to P4 Gavleborg's Catrin Landén (to the left in the picture, with her producer colleague Martina Söderlind) and eminent sound technician Mattz for having us!

Lately we've been focusing on music for the scene, working as laptop musicians designing sound in realtime in the dance performance Midsummer Night's Dream (Alexander Ekmans Midsommarnattsdrom) with the Royal Ballet at Stockholm Opera.
Great Harlem-based Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson's music was performed by Dahlkvist string quartet, pianist Henrik Mawe, percussionist Niklas Brommare and the outstanding singer Anna von Hausswolff and Grobe music (Roger Bergstrom and Maria Gronlund) as laptop musicians. 
21 sold-out performances has now been done before enthusiastic audiences and overwhelmed reviewers and it has been filmed by French production company Bel Air with upcoming broadcast on SVT. The great mind behind it all, choreographer Alexander Ekman ("The Zlatan of the dance world" according to DN) is now heading to Paris to stage his spectacular ballet A Swan Lake - set in water(!) at the Paris Opera.
