About The Concretes
This sextet's music is dotted with bits of Lounge and Twee Pop for a thoroughly modern, somewhat space age take on Indie Rock. Simple lyrics delivered in accented vocals heighten the quirky nature of these songs, which are played up using hand claps, harmonica and a variety of blipping and droning keys. Though their music would fall under the same umbrella as Stereolab or Komeda, the Concretes' pop is not as ridged, mechanical or droning. Instead, these Swedes opt for a warmer, effervescent sound that spills over with exuberance.
