Swedish three-piece, My Heart Is A Metronome (MHIAM), are releasing the self-produced EP Tierp which is bursting with alternative rock hooks and addictive melodies.
Having been labelled ‘Sweden’s Best Unsigned Band’, the band have a lot to live up to, but the track alone does not disappoint. Set for release on February 10th, Tierp was mixed by three-time Grammy award winner Pelle Gunnerfeldt (The Hives, Status Quo, The Knife) and mastered by Robin Schmidt (Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, Black Keys, The 1975).
The band originally started off playing at a children’s birthday party, but 4 years later, the trio have found themselves touring non-stop in both Sweden and the UK. They have also received airplay in France, America and Germany. Some have christened the band as a hybrid between Kings of Leon and Bombay Bicycle Club, and if this is anything to go by, MHIAM are certainly set for success.
‘Tierp’ comes from the name of the lead singer, Mattis’ hometown which had been dubbed the ugliest town in Sweden.
After his former band simply lacked ambition and drive to succeed, Mattis founded MHIAM on his own out of the ashes. He then set himself on creating his debut EP before going travelling around Europe, accompanied by just a backpack and a guitar. Upon his return, Mattis employed Gustaf and Felix who completed the trio.
The trio are set to release their lead single January 26th through the brand new indie label Soul City Enterprise, alongside a music video which shows the group cycling in the snow in Sweden’s ‘ugliest town’.
