Suburban Kids With Biblical Names


Ladies and Gentlemen, something may be rotten in the state of Denmark, but nothing is wrong in the state of Swedish rock! Indeed, swedish rock has really become a bastion of great music. The Caesars ("Gonna Kick You Out" and "Jerk It Out" from that iTunes commerical), The Cardigans, and now Suburban Kids With Biblical Names.

An odd name indeed, from this swedish duo of nerds. Suburban Kids With Biblical Names actually comes from the lyrics of a Silver Jews' song "People". The song isn't that good, but this band sure is. To quote their record company, Labrador, "Suburban Kids with Biblical Names is Johan Hedberg and Peter Gunnarsson. They make and record their music in the hallway or the storehouse at the home of Peter’s kind parents. Johan makes simple drafts of the songs and then Peter polish them and turn them into shiny pop songs. They put two songs on an internet site in the beginning of 2004 and got very good response from people." After that, the only way was up. Their catchy pop/electronic (poptronic, as I have just made up) songs will really put a smile on your face.

My favorite song from their newest release, 3, is "Loop Duplicate My Heart." The video is also pretty good.

Listen to Loop Duplicate My Heart.

See the video. It's dorky and cool.
