I'm From Barcelona Go Mute
Formed in Jonkoping, Sweden by Emanuel Lundgren (formerly of Valley Days), I'm From Barcelona are 29 (count em!) friends who gathered together and, fuelled with the energy that only a sunny summer holiday can bring, created an album of explosively happy pop songs. The result is the debut record, "Let Me Introduce My Friends," which features the forthcoming single "We're From Barcelona." The album is scheduled for US release March 20, 2007.
During the recording process Lundgren transformed his home into a factory where band members embraced a do-it-yourself ethic, coming and going loaded with banjos, accordions and kazoos. They eventually self-released the EP "Don't Give Up On Your Dreams, Buddy!" Their album followed shortly after and was released on EMI Sweden.
