Urban Cone – Sweden strikes again

Urban Cone – another highly talented young band from Sweden. Founded in 2010 the five guys from Stockholm became famous by the release of their 2011 hit “Urban Photograph”; a success which can be traced back to various blogs in which their tracks have been heavily spread and discussed. Much in favor of the band as record label giant Universal quickly got the guys under contract.

By today Urban Cone have released their EP “Our Youth” which has been launched in two steps. I’d personally consider part 1 to sound more indie thanks to tracks like “Urban Photograph” while part 2 stands out with pleasant electronic beats such as featured in “We should go to France”. Producer Nille Perned, known of collaborating with acts like Miike Snow or Kent, has definitely left his mark on the EPs however let Urban Cone retain their very own, distinct style of music.

The Insider: In case you got tempted by all the neat indie-electronic remixes go and visit the Soundcloud page of Lucas Nord, DJ and musician from Stockholm, he released some pretty sexy remixes from various artists among them Urban Cone.

Sounds like: Icona Pop, Pallers, Masquer, Pearl Fiction, Karl X Johan, Amanda Mair
