As a son to the Norrbottnian legend in theatres; Harry Nyman and the voice master; Stina Andersson, Olle had his road pretty much laid out anyhow. After his teenage years as a member of numerous hardcore band in his hometown of Luleå, he begun playing with his older brother Kalle and a number of local gangsters and started up a band. Playing with is only in a musical sense, by the way. Together they wrote the song "It's Alright". Then they were busted. The sound geek and notorious displacer of personal belongings Stefan Sundström got to act as sound engineer in the small studio behind the café and handicraft shop for 18 month of time.
The band just spit out a bunch of songs as if they where sweat droplets. Stefan kept recording. During springtime 2005 Olle and his pack got a contact with the legends Ollie Olson (Christian Waltz, Komeda, Snoop Dogg…) and Henrik Edenhed (Ceasars, Robyn). The two of them fought through snow and ice to get from Stockholm up to Luleå and Svartöstaden to record the lovely tones on a tape (or actually a hard drive, if we are to be honest). 12 songs got recorded in the old building Blackis, and they are now what makes up their debut album "Behind the Clouds". The old steel workers house "Folkets Hus" turned out to be just the perfect place in the struggle to get an organic, genuine and muddy sound.
Most of the material was recorded live - just like it is supposed to be done, according to every trustworthy rock snob - which caught the sound ideal; raw, warm and real. During the following fall the band said; this is just too good not to be released. Money was gathered, designers and marketing people were contacted, and live gigs were booked. In December 2005 the album "Behind the Clouds" was pre-released in co-operation with the network BD Pop, but fully in alignment with genuine DIY-spirit. A handful of gigs later, almost every album was sold and something had to be done. The band decided that they couldn't handle the process by themselves so after some negotiating with different record labels, a deal was closed with A Westside Fabrication.
Since of April 2006 the album is out on the Swedish market and played on the radio all around Sweden. Some of the songs from the album also made it to national TV in the blockbuster series "Möbelhandlarens Dotter". Read more on Last.fm.
