The Concretes Currently Touring the West Coast!

Sweden's preeminent dreamy indie-pop ensemble The Concretes is currently in the midst of the West Coast leg of their first U.S. tour in four years, and now they'd like to share a new music video for WYWH’s “Crack In The Paint.” The band is on the road with MillionYoung, which still has them passing through Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Diego & more.

WYWH sees The Concretes in their new incarnation- former drummer Lisa Milberg has stepped out from behind the kit to take over lead vocals after the departure of Victoria Bergsman. The album has a dreamy, ethereal disco tinge, and features less guitar, more keyboards, bass, and deep grooves, while maintaining the irresistable melodies that give The Concretes the sound that they’ve come to define.

The Concretes Announce First North American Tour in Four Years!

Sweden’s dreamy indie-pop ensemble The Concretes dropped their new album, WYWH, last Tuesday, November 9th via Friendly Fire Recordings, and now we’re excited to announce their first North American tour in four years, which will take place between January and March 2011! The tour is split in two, with the band hitting markets on the East Coast, Midwest and Canada in January, then returning in February/March to tackle the West Coast.

WYWH sees The Concretes in their new, improved incarnation- former drummer Lisa Milberg has stepped out from behind the drum kit to take over lead vocals after the departure of Victoria Bergsman. The album has a dreamy, ethereal disco feel, and features less guitar, more keyboards, bass, and deep grooves, while maintaining the irresistable melodies that give The Concretes the sound that they’ve come to define.
