Suburban Kids With Biblical Names - #3

Playing Whelans in Dublin this May !!!!!

"Originally released in 2005 and reissued in '06 on the Minty Fresh label, #3 is actually the first full-length album by the Swedish indie-pop duo Suburban Kids with Biblical Names. (#1 and #2 are EPs.) While the acoustic-guitar-toting Scandinavian pair invites comparisons to Norway's Kings of Convenience, Peter Gunnarson and Johan Hedberg actually hew closer to the eclectic and eccentric sound of fellow Swede Jens Lekman, as revealed on the light, lilting "Funeral Face" and the ridiculously catchy, lo-fi "Rent a Wreck," which features an infectious "ba-ba-ba" chorus. Irrepressibly witty, fun, and happy rock 'n' roll from a duo who sound like children who've played together forever. Exuberant, joyful; it even puts a bounce in yer booty."
