The Sound of Arrows are a Swedish indie pop duo whose danceable, click-blippity computerized sweetness nods to the Legends, Ice Cream Shout, and Vapnet. The project came together in the winter of 2006 when friends Stefan Storm (formerly of Panache) and Oskar Gullstrand set out to make a Christmas song. Finishing the song about six months later (they allegedly weren't very good with computers at that point), Storm and Gullstrand set out to put together more songs. One of those tracks, "Narrow Escape," piqued the attention of Labrador Records, who released the Sound of Arrows' debut EP, Danger!, in the spring of 2008. The band released more singles for Labrador in 2009 ("M.A.G.I.C." and "Into the Clouds") before hopping over to Geffen and releasing the "Nova" single in early 2011. In between times, the duo kept busy recording and also doing remixes for artists like Alphabeat, Nicole Scherzinger, and Lady Gaga. After releasing another single in the summer of 2011 (a reissue of "M.A.G.I.C."), their long-awaited first album, Voyage, surfaced in November. ~ Margaret Reges
