Loney, Dear

Biography

As the leader (and lone member) of Loney, Dear, multi-instrumentalist Emil Svanangen spent a lot of time in his parents' basement in Jonkoping, Sweden, churning out homemade CDRs -- all recorded with one minidisk microphone on his computer. In this manner, his project sold thousands of CDs online and garnered a little Swedish radio play. In 2006, Seattle's Sub Pop Records caught an overseas gust of Loney's bouncy yet despairing, buzzed-about Scando-pop, and released his fourth (yet first official) album Loney, Noir. While still a one-man-project, Emil is joined onstage by a full band of fellow Swedes to recreate his in-the-bedroom sound, intimate yet full of clarinets, trumpets and happy hand clapping.
