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.
