We find many names for those we love). He is influenced by power pop, 60's psychedelia, 90's indie rock, dream pop and bands like Teenage Fanclub, Nada Surf, Ride, The Byrds, Big Star, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith. He started this project in 2005 in Alingsås, Sweden when he felt that he wanted to do something on his own. He had made a couple of new songs, but felt that they did not fit in with other songs he had written to his other bands. This is basically the reason he started this, and you may call it a solo project or whatever.

The songs are often rather basic and sparse, regarding arrangements and production, with vocals, harmonies, layers of guitars, sometimes bass guitar and a tambourine or other means of percussion. DIAWOL first recorded some lo-fi demo songs on a portal studio in the autumn of 2005. A more psychedelic rock song, Journey in My Own Mind was recorded in 2007. Between March and May 2008 he recorded four new songs, these can be found on the Phases EP.

Since, he has remixed some of his own songs, mixed and played guitar on his friend Valla's EP's and recorded new EP's and albums with 1969 Armstrong, Bolywool, Homelake and There There. DIAWOL was on hiatus since the summer of 2009 due to many things, but in the end of 2016 (and probably earlier than that) he wrote new songs and plans to release them in 2017. Stay tuned! Since 2010 he's also in a (still nameless) power pop duo with his dear friend Jakob Albinsson (Only If You Call Me Jonathan, Buck, There There, Dar Adal, José González and Junip. They recorded two songs in 2012, but they are not released yet.

New songs are to be recorded in 2017. Stay tuned #2! Soundcloud Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
