With a great name and some super-infectious indie-rock songwriting, My Heart Is A Metronome (MHIAM) are breaking out of their small Swedish town, ready to unleash their music on the world.
The band are releasing their debut EP ‘Tierp’, along with the lead single of the same name, which relates to the name of front man Mattis’ hometown. It was voted the ugliest town in Sweden, but the group don’t let this get them down, producing upbeat rock music with addictive pop hooks.
Despite this, MHIAM have received the much more positive label of ‘Sweden’s Best Unsigned band’ which has led to them recording the EP with 3-time Grammy award winner, Pelle Gunnerfeldt (The Hives, The Knife) and Robin Schmidt (Ben Howard, Black Keys, The 1975).
Originally, the band began playing at a kid’s birthday party, but now they have more than honed their craft and since then, they have toured all over Sweden and the UK, and have received airplay across Europe. Some have placed the band on a musical spectrum somewhere in between Kings of Leon and Bombay Bicycle Club and if this is anything to go by, MHIAM have a bright future ahead of them.
The trio are set to release their EP on February 10th under the brand new indie label, Soul City Enterprise, alongside a great video showing the boys cycling through their ‘ugly’ town.
