From Stockholm, The Concretes are a Swedish indie pop musical creation that began in 1995 with vocalists Victoria Bergsman, Maria Eriksson, and Lisa Milberg. After acquiring new members, the small group gradually grew into an eight piece band. Before Victoria eventually left the Concretes to be featured with Peter Bjorn and John for the popular single Young Folks and moved on to her own solo project Taken by Trees, her voice was an instrumental force that drove an adorable and innocent charm to the entire band’s sound.  On the Concretes’ debut Boy You Better Run Now and their self-titled albums, a natural warmth left a dreamy impression that escaped within their foreign, whimsical and colorful sounds.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
