The Gothenburg based Swedes in Den Stora Vilan is back
with their new music video Stölden created by Stina Helleday. The video is filmed in Stockholm and the song is taken from the bands 17 tracks and 71 minutes long dubble album "Utsikt Mot Havet".
The band is a vital part of Gothenburgs rock-scene that during the last year have given us bands as Graveyard and Goat.
Den Stora Vilan:
Anyone who's been to a concert with Den Stora Vilan knows it's something out of the ordinary. Constantly listed as one of Sweden's finest live acts, the band is one of Scandinavia's most up and coming bands. Their Willfulness is in line with a diversity of artists such as Ariel Pink and Prince but their musical influences reaches even furher back in music history to the time of iconic groups like Grateful Dead and Neil Young.
Den Stora Vilan is an organic entity, based upon feeling, groove and improvisation, a unique psychadelic being with deep roots constantely searching out new directions to make the music come alive. Bringing a dynamic range of sounds from delicate atmospheric trips to sweeping heavy rhythms, never in a stiff proggresive manor but through their fine musicianship and feeling. Constantly building up and breaking down the music as it fits the situation.
In 2011 their Self Titled debut record was released which quickly sold out. The following year they released two more albums, one livealbum "Livegrodor" and their second studioalbum "Förvandling". The three releases were followed by two years of playing live and building up a genuine audience. 200 shows including bills shared with Träd Gräs and Stenar, Graveyard, Kurt Vile, Nick Lowe, White Hills and the Growlers.
In 2015 Den Stora Vilan returns with the double LP "Utsikt Mot Havet". 17 new songs. The sound is tighter, heavier and the vocalparts beautifully sung. Partly produced by Don Alsterberg (producer of Graveyard, Blues Pills). And mixed by Johan Forsman (Träd Gräs och Stenar, The Soundtrack Of Our Lives). In Johan's own words "An imidiate Swedish Classic".
