Mando Diao are great; Sweden’s answer to The Hives has arrived.
Paralyzed is the second single, but first single proper from their eagerly anticipated debut album ‘Hurricane Bar’, which has already flown off the shelves in their homeland of Sweden and even as far away as Japan.
Paralyzed oozes that dirty, wrecked amp and worn guitar strings feel. Recorded in their very own Swedish basement, these boys, eat, sleep, and breathe rock’n’roll, clearly evident from the tight unit they play in. Paralyzed has bluesy roots borne out through the brass section which harmonious accompanies the heavy rhythms and riffs.
Mando Diao should be watched intently, they’re cute, talented and Swedish, what more could you ask for?
