    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.

    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. :D
    I heard them this summer and Kasper Eistrup (the lead singer) was wickedly cool :cool: - I'll never get sick of the album Zitilites :heart:

    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 ^_^

    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.

    ^I'm no expert but I think it's because the term "The Nordic Countries" has been mixed up with "Scandinavia", as "The Nordic Countries" cover all the nordic countries :P

    But as words and their meaning evolve. The definition that Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands is a part of Scandinavia is just as correct. It's just a more recent definition.

    For some reason I've never been wild about The Raveonettes, I know a lot of people who are. But I just haven't felt that spark :unsure: :magic:
    :lol:

    These two songs are good, and I think even if you don't understand what they're saying they're quite catchy.. ^_^

    Oskar Linnros - Från och med Du


    Daniel Adams-Ray - Dum av Dig


    They're both members of Snook (Swedish hip-hop duo). They're my guilty pleasure artists.. :lol:
