I know Viktor Noren of course. I also know Samuel Giers from Mando Diao and Jonas Karlsson from Sugarplum Fairy. Now the three of them have created a new band called “Viktor And The Blood”.
If anyone is a constant reader of my blog, they are going to find out really soon that Mando Diao and Sugarplum Fairy are the reason why I was inspired to move and live in this country. And the great thing is that now I have the chance to talk about them, blog about them and the most important see them perform live. One of these moments is going to be on the 17th of May since Viktor and The Blood are going to perform live in Stockholm at Debaser Medis. I really cannot wait to see this show and listen to their new music. Their EP was released on the 29th of April and it’s now available on spotify. Their first video for this EP called ” Kicks out on a Saturday night” was released some days ago and it’s available on Youtube. I have listened to their new work and I have to say that it is a bit more rock – ish in my opinion than Sugarplum Fairy used to sound like, but I also have to say that I think this style suits better to Viktor Noren! His voice sounds more deep than before and you can still see elements of Mando Diao and Sugarplum fairy on their new work.
You can take a look here and see how I was inspired by them and check out a couple of Sugarplum Fairy pics by last year’s Peace and Love Festival at Borlänge – Dalarna :
