WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF LIGHTHOUSE SWEDEN!
Top reviews and air play around the world – the band really got something cooking!
Their second album “Silence in the City” was released in April 2017 and has received positive reviews in over ten countries in Europe and North America. In addition to Swedish Radio’s rotation on the songs, they are also on radio stations in the USA, Italy, Canada, Brazil, Australia, England and Holland. And this is just the beginning …
Paul Freeman (Pop Culture Classics, Los Angeles Times Syndicate, San Francisco Chronicle’s) writes: “This band from Sweden offers an exciting variation on familiar American music forms – rock ’n’ roll, pop, blues, folk, funk and country. Led by husband-and-wife team Linda and Mats Brandemark, the group delivers exceptional songwriting and captivating performances Linda and Mats take turns on lead vocals and blend beautifully on harmonies. Mats’ rugged voice creates an effective contrast to Linda’s sweet tones.”
Critical Commentary on the album “Silence in the City” (2017):
“A wild concept album that captures the best of all the driving folk/rock you ever loved, you have to wonder how these contemporary cats found such hippie vibes in their psyches. A glorious, wild ride take to the max, this set grabs you right from the git go and never let’s go. A winner throughout.” (Midwest Records, USA)
“Lighthouse Sweden plays americana so authentically and perfectly that one would never expect that they are not a US top band.” (Munich Talk, Germany)
“Swedish-born Mats & Linda Brandemark burst onto the scene with a musical style that marries indie rock with Americana, creating their own unique offering to indie music today. Like that other Swedish pop band of husbands and wives, Lighthouse Sweden gives us music filled with soaring vocals, music that makes you move, and more goodies than you can list.” (L.A Music Critic, USA)
“Lighthouse Sweden know very well how to captivate listeners, as their music sounds attractive and full of magnetism.” (La Hora del Blues, Spain)
