Sparland is a progressive synth rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. We like to mix up the normal with time changes and uncoventional song structure. We are tired of hearing the same hook repeated 12 times in a song.


Sparland formed in January of 2005, and has already earned a strong reputation in the St. Louis area. They have shared the stage with national acts: Dead Poetic, The Beautiful Mistake, Lorene Drive, Days Like These, As Cities Burn, Classic Case, Amber Pacific, So They Say, Ever We Fall, Spoken, The Appleseed Cast, Houston Calls and Lucky Boys Confusion to name a few. Sparland has developed their sound around a number of influences ranging from hardcore to new wave. They break up the normal with several time changes, and unconventional song structure. The buzz has just begun as they are already receiving local radio play. Big and bright things are in store for this midwestern 5 piece as their self released "Invasion" ep only begins to define them. Catch a live show and see for yourself.
