Friska Viljor is an indie rock band from Stockholm, Sweden, founded by two close friends Daniel Johansson and Joakim Sveningsson.
It was January, in the year of grace 2005. Two broken relationships had led two
very good friends down the path to the strikingly untidy rehearsalstudio. A decision was made. A decision that may well change these lost souls lives forever. A decision that was based on the numerous nights of toxic discussions between the two. The one topic that was always brought to life these nights, ever so confusing, was love.
It haunted them so badly that they´d now decided to put it aside. At least the love
dedicated to your lover. All the energy given and recieved would now be focused
elsewhere. At what you may think? Music? No, not music, butlife, joy, playfulness and the freedom to do whatever you want.
So now, there you are, maybe with a little circular plastic piece lying in front of you. Or maybe you have just recently heard of this band and you are now looking at their story on a shiny screen. Anyhow you may not believe it, but that little plastic piece combined with a stereo, or clicking on a sound link on this screen, volume cranked up of course, brings all that life, joy, playfulness and freedom to You, with all the energy that once was dedicated to a now lost love.
In 2006 Friska Viljor released their debut album Bravo! for Sweden and in 2007 for the rest of Europe. Alike many other Swedish bands who copy each other trying to become new Oasis, Friska Viljor has to offer something very different. Inventively combining folk and pop, using different instruments, humorous lyrics and catchy melodies, they succeed to deliver one of the most exciting records in 2007. Highly Recommended!
