Taikes


Taikes was founded on the fall of 2002 by Johan, Alex and their previous drummer Axel, who was later replaced by present drummer Oskar just a week before their first gig in spring 2003. They started off as a true grunge-band in best Nirvana spirit. Although their early "hits" My Thoughts, Reflections and Could It Be Love had a good melody and a heart of its own, it almost sounded as a duplication of Nirvana, which they got to hear a lot after their first gigs.

Taikes was founded on the fall of 2002 by Johan, Alex and their previous drummer Axel, who was later replaced by present drummer Oskar just a week before their first gig in spring 2003. They started off as a true grunge-band in best Nirvana spirit. Although their early "hits" My Thoughts, Reflections and Could It Be Love had a good melody and a heart of its own, it almost sounded as a duplication of Nirvana, which they got to hear a lot after their first gigs. This had different impacts on the audience.

Some loved it because they saw it as the revival of the grunge and starting of a new era, while others hated it and claimed it was being a complete rip-off. Although Taikes has never abandoned the genre, singer/songwriter Johan and the band itself has gotten more influences from bands as Placebo and Muse. Combining those two slightly different genres makes up for a quite original sound, which they've slightly ironically named "Emo Grunge". Which stands for "emotional grunge-rock".

But there's also quite a lot of pop in it as well. Today Taikes is making real progress. They've had over 40 gigs in Sweden and Mexico and they've also managed to get some awards in different competitions. They've recorded 4 EP's and are now working on the fifth, which will be as great as the fourth. Taikes consists of: Johan Fredin: vocals, guitars, writer/composer Alex Hedling: bass, backing vocals Oskar Landgren: drums Read more on Last.fm.
