Swedish sapheads IMPO & THE TENTS started out in 2009, influenced by 60s/70s beat, girl group, bubblegum, punk and power pop. The songs are rarely longer than two minutes, yet filled to the rim with whopping hooks, cheesy melodies and rattling riffs, topped with quirky lyrics and occasional organ knickknack. The band consists of ADHD drummer Victor, guitar spaz Dan and singer/bass player Rune, who’s squeaky, snotty vocals have been compared to the likes of Feargal Sharkey (THE UNDERTONES), Leonard Graves Phillips (THE DICKIES) and Jay Reatard. This far in the game, the group has released an s/t LP (2011, Alleycat Records) and two 7inches; “Don’t give me your number” (Alleycat Records, 2012) and “Nothing to say“ (Push My Buttons, 2012). With their new 7inch “Going to the moon” IMPO & THE TENTS whip out three new hit-songs and they even saved their best song ever ("Do the wipers") for the B-side. Crazy Swedes! During the last couple of years, they’ve been building a reputation as a tight live act while plowing their way through Northern Europe, aiming for the South in springtime 2013.
