White Birches

White Birches mixes alarming guitars and dissonant synthesizers with haunting pop melodies. In April 2015 the dark wave duo White Birches released their critically acclaimed debut album ”Dark  Waters”. An album nominated for “best synth” at the Swedish “indie grammy” Manifestgalan. In 2017 the band signed with Progress  Productions. On February 9 they finally release their second and much anticipated album “When the Street Calls”.

The duo consists of Jenny Gabrielsson Mare on vocals, guitars and of Fredrik Jonasson on synthesizers, drum machines and samplers.  White Birches’ music has been compared to Cocteau Twins,  Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy and Kate Bush.

White Birches blandar larmande gitarrer och skeva syntar med fängslande popmelodier. I april 2015 släppte dark wave duon White Birches sitt kritikerrosade debutalbum “Dark Waters”. Ett album som också var nominerat i kategorin “bästa synth” på Manifestgalan
2016. Hösten 2017 plockades bandet upp av Progress Productions. 9 februari i år kommer den efterlängtade uppföljaren “When the Street Calls”.

Duon består av Jenny Gabrielsson Mare på sång, gitarrer samt Fredrik Jonasson på syntar, trummaskiner och samplers. White Birches musik har jämförts med bland annat Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy och Kate Bush.


Jens Gustavson

Jens Gustavson – a singer, guitarist and songwriter from Brunflo who has been active on the music scene in Östersund in the swedish midlands for 3 decades. He has played base in ”Doggybag Bluesband” and has been a frontman of progrockband ”Andras Ungar”. Jens musical style could maybe be described as a collision between swedish troubadour music and melancolic electric rock. His latest release is the soloalbum ”Voodoo” from 2016 but new material is on the way and about to be released during the year. On stage is also Ronny Dahlberg on percussion.

Jens Gustavson -- sångare, gitarrist och låtskrivare från Brunflo som varit verksam i Östersunds musikliv i 3 decennier. Har ett förflutet bl.a. som basist i bluesbandet Doggybag Bluesband och senare som frontfigur i proggrockbandet Andras Ungar. Jens stil kan kanske beskrivas som svensk visa på kollisionskurs med melankolisk elektrisk rock. Senast utgivet är solovinylen ”Voodoo” från 2016 men nytt material är på gång och beräknas komma ut under året. Jens backas upp av Ronny Dahlberg på percussion.
