Biography

Avakhan live at Powers Bar in London

Avakhan are a female-fronted Swedish electro band with the melodrama of Florence And The Machine and the tight-indie sentiment of Marina And The Diamonds and Moloko. Their music draws on a melancholic style prevalent in the latter part of the 90s – that kind of sweet, but dark pop thing with a post-modern edge to it.

It all began when Ava, Kristoffer and Joakim met in Stockholm and started a band touring clubs and festivals. After many celebrated concerts it was not long until they were the labeled as “Sweden’s best unsigned live band” by a Swedish Idol Judge on Channel Four. Shortly after that in 2008 they released their debut album It’s Not What You Believe in which one of Sweden’s greatest jazz musicians Magnus Lindgren collaborated on.

Reviews:

”This Swedish trio have just put out a joyous synthpop belter that we have been listening to a lotthis week…The song has been described to us having a Tegan & Sara-esque sound, and we’d
definitely agree on that one. It’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek track with a catchy melody and a lovable production.” -Scandipop, UK

”Written and produced by the band, their single Just Let Go is an upbeat, feel-good pop tune. An outrageously addictive chorus paired with Tegan And Sara – esque vibrant vocals is the
perfect combination for what feels like a hit.” -The Hype Magazine, UK
.
..”Just Let Go, a buoyant, churning indie pop record…”Ava’s sugary chorus is the moment of the record, an irresistible that’s hard not to sing along with eventually… it should get plenty of burn in clubs and on radio stations worldwide” – Impose Magazine, UK
