I'm Scandinavian, and my favourite bands are many, depending on genre. Røyksopp, Kent, Mew come to mind.

Right now I'm hooked on a small up and coming group called "Harry's gym" with a song called "Old man". A fantastic electro pop tune.

It's hard to say as there is so much good music coming from Scandinavia. But at tis moment, I have to say it goes to the Iamamiwhoami project !!

Yeah there are quite a lot of great unknown (at least to the rest of the world) artists from Scandinavia. As I'm sure there are from other parts of the world as well

Some of my favorites at the moment are:
Thee Attacks (60´s garage rock)
The Blue Van (garage rock)
Tina Dico (singer/songwriter)
Turboweekend (electro-rock)
Analogik (an electronic mix of balkan, hiphop, polka etc.)
Ibrahim electric (jazzy, rock, blues etc. etc.)
FM Belfast (dance-pop, electro)

i'm not sure if anyone of you have heard of Oh Laura before? but they are amazing. they did this song called "release me" if that ring any bells.

"it aint enough" is super catchy.

^They are big in Denmark.
I heard them this summer and Kasper Eistrup (the lead singer) was wickedly cool - I'll never get sick of the album Zitilites

Oh yeah I so agree with the above mentioning of: Kings of Convenience, Múm and Jenny Wilson. The Whitest Boy Alive are great as well

Yes! Agreed!

Wait, are Kashmir not Scandinavian?
I don't know how you all categorize.

Sure they are. They are danish

Well, technically speaking Scandinavia only consists of Norway, Sweden and (Denmark). But Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Finland are normally considered as being a part of Scandinavia as well. I guess that is the most common belief.
