The Wannadies

Stage 1, Sara Kulturhus, Skellefteå

The Wannadies broke through in the 90s as one of the leading names in the Swedish indie wave. With songs such as "My Hometown", "You and Me Song", "Shorty" and "Hit", the band reached far beyond the borders of their home country and enjoyed great success in the UK and Japan.

"You and Me Song" has appeared on the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet as well as in a long line of commercials. The local anthem "My Hometown" has been interpreted by artists from Annika Norlin in Säktt's translation, via the child star Oscar Stembridge to the young Skelleftå artist Mika Johansdotter's new version.

In 2002, The Wannadies' sixth and to date date last album "Before & After" was released. It is also in connection with the new release of the album that the new single has been released. A release that also caused the band to make the decision to merge again.

But this is not really a reunion. The Wannadies have always been as much a family as a band. For the past 18 years, they have mostly been the former. Now it's a band again.

In 2020, they have prepared in the rehearsal room and felt both old and new material. So who knows, the new single may soon be followed by more from The Wannadies. Because after all; "You can kill the music, pop the rock, can make a good thing stop".
