Customer Reviews

One of the best pop albums I've ever heard!

The above title might be an exaggeration, but my first impression of this album is just that. I read one review that said it sounds like a walk in the park. I'd say it's like a walk in the park where all the flowers, trees, and woodland creatures are dancing around you and all of a sudden everyone bursts into unified song and all the world seems right (a la Enchanted). Alright, sorry about that, but I couldn't control myself. This duo has a great ability to meld harmonies, melodies, and beautiful instruments together for an album that is pure pop/folk perfection. You'll definitely be able to hear other Swedish bands (Shout Out Louds, Peter, Bjorn, & John, etc,) as an influence for their sound, but Marching Band take these influences and smooth them into a sound that's fun, creative, and just wonderful. No doubt some will have difficulty taking this much sugary sweetness into their musical diet, but Marching Band should appeal to a fairly broad audience. The lyrics are simple but clever, and add to the pleasant, joyous sound. I think I've found my summer album. Favorite Tracks: Gorgeous Behavior, Travel In Time, Letters

This is quite an effortlessly prefect album.

I would do a song by song, but they are all so uniformly lovely and upbeat. I've listened to it 3 times through to try and find a track I didn't love. There isn't one. Highlights are: Feel Good About It, Travel in Time, Aggravate, and especially the opening track, For Your Love. The album has a shimmery lightness that is perfect for summer. Endlessly and effortlessly inspired. Buy this right now.

Outstanding Swedish Indie Pop

First heard these guys on World Cafe online - psyched to see they're getting love from KCRW too. The whole record is so well done - and for just 2 guys, they really deliver a full on album concept and band's worth of tight, creative, indie pop. It's like the Beach Boys meets Peter, Bjorn & John - but with some south African vibe blended in. Production is sweet, understated but adds a level of precision that takes the music to another level. Awesome!!

Biography

With only two members on board, Marching Band creates a lush, vibrant brand of Swedish pop.
