Archi & Pelago
Although debutants in terms of this particular band constellation, Oskar, Gustaf, Joakim and Magnus are far from rookies in the music business. They have previously toured with some of Sweden's biggest artists (Miriam Bryant, Skott, Norlie & KKV) and lead singer Oskar has captivated audiences all over Scandinavia in one of the leading roles of “Kristina från Duvemåla”, a musical written by legends Björn and Benny from ABBA. Their debut single Groundhog Day was born out of a plucked patch on a Yamaha DX7 and nods to bands like Miike Snow, Haim and Maroon 5. The lyrics are about an unhealthy love/hate relationship that is doomed, but that just goes on and on in a destructive loop. Much in the same way that Bill Murray repeatedly wakes up to a dull Monday morning in epic 90s movie Groundhog Day.
