Our local record store in Sundsvall, Vinylstallet turns three years old this Saturday the 10th and Mikael and Mattias vill perform a short set outside the store, also performing is friend of ours Håkan Alfredsson who just released his vinyl album “The voice from Sweden”. Both act will perform between 12.00 – 13.00 at Saturday the 10th September.
Vinylstallet i Sundsvall firar tre år som skivbutik i Stenstan, Sundsvall och det skall självklart firas! Dagen till ära så spelar Mattias & Mikael från (halva) The Confusions lite nytt och gammalt och Håkan Alfredsson spelar låtar från sin nya LP ”The voice from Sweden”.
The Confusions & Håkan Alfredsson spelar mellan 12.00-13.00, vid bra väder så hittar ni oss troligtvis på gatan utanför butiken, blir det dåligt väder så finns vi med stor sannolikhet i butiken.
Kom förbi och häng och trivs i butiken, här bjuds både på vinyler som är till salu och annat smått och gott!
Vinylstallet har öppet 10-15 denna lördag 10 sept, det ryktas öven om en ”svingod smörgåstårta”.
At Friday the 29th of July we played live at the island Kalven, a long set in front of a fantastic crowd in the sunshine, might have been the best evening this summer. Two songs in this clip, Sunday Mornings & Arrow. We want to say huge thanks to all that showed up and everyone who helped us pull this off. It’s not the easiest thing for a rock band to play outside at the beach, at an island with no power, have to go by boat. It was an exciting experience for us all and we hope we can do this again.
“… Com um groove autêntico e inesquecível e um som sofisticado e intenso, que o projecto sueco define como sendo “música de Verão vinda do Norte”, os The Confusions voltam a fazer magia e provam que, mais de 30 anos depois, o seu som continua a soar a fresco e a novo, como nos primeiros tempos da banda, sempre cheio de pormenores e detalhes deliciosos, que pedem que se dance.
Perfeita para ouvir alto e em loop, como as boas canções merecem, “Fell Out Of Bed” é uma canção sofisticada e intensa, que mostra que a boa musica é intemporal, e que os The Confusions continuam a saber muito bem o que andam cá a fazer.”
“Post it online and it will be fine”, Fell Out Of Bed a true indie summer anthem. A song with a steady, groovy beat, an odd synth hook, jangly indie guitars and a bass line from the 90s dance indie hits.
Have a great summer friends! /Magnus, Mattias, Zarah & Mikael
Rock music has found perfection a few times over. There are enough versions of perfect sounds, crafted in just the right manner for modern audiences to listen in awe and young artists to want to gift the world something equally as alluring.
It’s no mean feat either, and rock musicians didn’t arrive at this state of grace by coincidence. Any scholar of rock history will tell you that there is plenty of garbage that you need to sort through in order to reach something worthwhile. Rock’s many permeations and its continued metamorphosis are what have allowed these remarkable forms of music to exist.
The Confusions have witnessed this excellence of human expression and were ready to carve it apart and reassemble it into their language in 1664. The tune is really a complex strategy that aims to marry punk, 60s rock, and even modern indie. All of these forms achieved an incredible sort of tightrope balance. Now, it’s The Confusions’ turn to dare to reach something of similar effortless beauty.
“1664” is 2 minutes and 20 seconds of rough but happy pop-punk-indie. “We wrote the idea of the song on just an acoustic guitar but the song transformed to a pop-punk anthem in the studio. Lyric is about growing up together with a friend and then drifting apart, with new ideals and directions in life.”

1664 (lyrics) I heard you singing all those songs when you were younger you sang it with freedom in your heart We were kids and we took care of one another then something fell apart
You got angry with the world and all the others it was always someone else’s fault You found a new direction like your father you found a brand new start
Don’t step into the reservoir Don’t walk that way Don’t step into the reservoir You got to walk away Away, away, away, away
You started searching for your answers where only the bitter people walk Swinging and complaining at your friends friendships fell apart
And everybody’s trying to be nice while strangers feeding you with lies We saw you turn into some kind of monster we saw you fall apart
Don’t step into the reservoir Don’t walk that way Don’t step into the reservoir You got to walk away Away, away, away, away Don’t step into the reservoir Don’t walk that way Don’t step into the reservoir You got to walk away Away, away, away, away
