#46. Mando Diao – Infruset

Artist/Band: Mando Diao

Album: Infruset (‘Frozen’)

Country: Sweden

Released: October 2012

Favorite tracks: En Sångarsaga, Infruset, Strövtåg i Hembygden

Mando Diao has been one of my favourite Swedish rock bands since their debut album Bring Em’ In 2002. But a lot has happened since then. They have sold millions of records, played Coachella, released an MTV Unplugged album and their Greatest Hits.

Just when we thought they were ready to take over the World, they do the complete opposite; they turn to our homeland and release an album, not only in Swedish, but with lyrics by the 20th century poet Gustaf Fröding.

Makes me patriotic and proud.
