Recording, recording, recording

So far we have four songs down and I think we will cut a few more. I don't know if it will be an EP or a full length yet, but we'll see. It seems we will wing it as long as we're having fun. I might put a song up from the sessions soon if there's interest.

Peace out,

Short update

Maybe you've noticed I've had a pretty long break from racingpaperplanes? I haven't even played any shows this year. For a while I wasn't sure if I was even gonna do this anymore. How ever I have gotten help from a few friends to get slowly back on track! My friend Marcus has pushed me to start writing again, and another friend, Kristofer is kind enough to help me out recording. And hey out of the blue I got a show booked in Stockholm in october!

I hope to have material for an EP to be released later this year and so far we have three songs down that i think are amazing!

So keep your fingers crossed I will pull through this!

Sunken ship EP!

I have just finished mixing what will be a new EP out on Tract records in spring!

It is pretty rough around the edges at times and that is the way I intended it to sound. Not too polished!

Here is the one that will probably divide people into love and hate :) Don't worry, this is the only one where I use my fuzz pedal!

Spain was... special. This is me and Glen in the apartment in Madrid practicing up for the shows. The sound is a bit iffy but I think the performance is great.

Bonus: I always get requests for metal songs. Some bands get the old "Creedence!?" shout. Here's the spanish version:

This is from Club Best Wishes in Gothenburg. November 2008. My friend Jonas Franke-Blom has contributed to songs on records in the past. We have talked about playing a show together but time was never right. Well now it was and I am so happy we did it! He adds so much with his cello work and the vibe of the songs and the crowd was amazing! I did some songs myself and some togehther with Jonas. Here are some clips.

"You came into my life"

"How did this ocean get so vast"

"Meet again"

"You if anyone"
