I'm From Barcelona

Biography

Fueled by love and vacation, Emanuel Lundgren writes a couple of explosive happy pop songs and decides to gather all his friends to put them on tape. His apartment turns into a friendly factory as people come and go loaded with banjos, accordions and kazoos. Some weeks (and lifetime memories) later, a homemade EP is finished and Emanuel collects almost all the 29 participants for a first and last live show in August 2005.

What he thought was an ending was a beginning of numerous rumours and talk about this new and exciting band. One show soon turned into plenty. Swedish media goes out of control and bloggers all over the world starts sharing their knowledge about the Swedish big band. In only a couple of months more than 20 000 people have downloaded songs from the bands website.

The EP "Don?t Give Up On Your Dreams, Buddy!" is released on EMI Sweden in early 2006 and is followed up by the full length album "Let Me Intruduce My Friends". A record full of euphoric pop gems and sing-a-long friendly choruses . The anthem "We?re From Barcelona" climbs the charts and the band is headed for a summer of festivals, including Primavera Sound in Barcelona.

I?m from Barcelona embraces the do-it-yourself mentality and live it?s hard to say where the band ends and the audience begins.
