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”.


The Confusions Live at Kalven “Sunday Mornings” & “Arrow”

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.

Both songs taken from the double vinyl album “Black Silhouettes” https://massproduktion.shop.textalk.se/sv/vinyl/the-confusions-black-silhouettes-dubbel-lp.html

Great review and words from Phonograph Me​, Portugal!

Great review and words from Phonograph Me​, thank you so much! Abraços!!! Let us dance…


“… 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.”

Palavra de Chavininha.

New single Fell Out Of Bed out now!

New song out now called Fell Out Of Bed! Let’s dance to this one amigos.


“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

8/10 review from Alt77.com for our single “1664”

The Confusions – 1664

Genre: Punk, New wave, Indie Rock

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” the video

“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
