Vita Bergen


Release Date: 03/04/2016 · Format: CD/LP(+Downloadcode)/DIGITAL · Catalog-No: GRCD 868

After releasing the debut ep ”Curtains” on a 500-dollar budget in 2014 Vita Bergen has snowballed into one of the most talked about bands in Sweden: they’ve topped the ITunes charts, played sold out venues in Germany, Switzerland and Scandinavia and are being played on national television in the US. They’ve received several awards in Sweden and is by many believed to be the next big thing on the European indie scene.

The singer William Hellström is described as a cult leader on speed and co-founder Robert Jallinder as one of Scandinavia’s most eccentric guitarists. Their uncontrolled, often chaotic live shows have left the band with concussions, nails up their feet and torn apart fingers – and still they say they make pop music. Influenced by acts like MGMT, Pink Floyd, The Jesus & Mary Chain or The Brian Jonestown Massacre the band has made it to ”one of Sweden’s underground success stories” (Clash Magazine).

After several heavyweights in the music business, such as NME, Vice, The Line of Best Fit and Clash Magazine have praised the band, now the time has come for their debut full-length album. Vita Bergen will release ”Disconnection” with Glitterhouse Records on the 3rd of March 2016 and will tour this May with gigs all around Europe. Vita Bergen has emerged from Sweden’s warehouse scene where they first made a name for themselves with their two magnetic front men who’ve left their former lives as straight A-students behind.

”You know the feeling when you are so proud of finding a new band that you tell all your friends about them so you can claim them?”

"one of Sweden's most promising new talents (…), blindingly bright refrains and soaring vocals echo alongside forceful rhythms and an ominously driving bassline” - Line of best Fit
