"A refreshing and unique voice from Stockholm's underground indie scene, combining solid songwriting with inventive production. Give it your attention."

Billboard magazine, Lars Brandle

“... the bulk of its material successfully walking the 'happy/sad' tightrope, several tracks managing to combine euphoria and despair in one uneasy, sugar-coated package”

Planet Mellotron

“One of the most exciting new bands I’ve heard in years”

Giles Martin - billboard


Still working on that hot first release.



The idea of the Swedish band Akaba was born from the ashes of two prominent indiebands, Pineforest Crunch and Reminder. At an abandoned shipyard outside of Stockholm amongst torn Mellotrons and stuttering Drummachines the idea of a small mobile musical unit was born. Ã…sa Carild and Tobias Ljungkvist and Mattias Olsson have toured extensively in Sweden playing everything from Thai restaurants to 600 seat venues (sometimes even in the same night!). They have also toured the US Westcoast creating a noticable buzz and built a new fanbase. They have since then also performed at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), CMJ (NY), The great Alternative Escape (Brighton, UK) and the Garage  and O2 Academy(London). 13st of October Akaba is releasing its debut Album internationally.
