"Stockholm has it right. They entertain, they pull you in with infectious sound, they tell you a story with conviction and sincerity, and they get out in melodic and grand fashion. I don’t anticipate a long stay in Orlando for these guys, so get out locally and see them, and definitely grab this cd. " - - Xander Rich, (Aug 09, 0010)

"Stockholm is a fresh new emerging band to the indie music arena. With influences including The Killers, Coldplay, U2, and Explosions in the Sky, they wasted no time creating sinfully catchy songs for their always growing fan base. Stockholm formed in late 2009 and quickly caught the attention of the local industry; only a short time after the formation of the group, they showcased at the 2010 Florida Music Festival. Stockholm continues to explore their bright future." - - aXis Magazine (Jul 07, 2010)

"Stockholm’s sound is very polished and chock full of glimmering guitar licks, swoon-style rhythms and the terrific vocals of singer Chris Arter." - - Indie Rock Cafe, Bands To Watch (Aug 06, 2010)

"To describe in mere words what Stockholm brings to the music scene is next to impossible" - - Iwannabe, (Feb 12, 2011)

"Stockholm, are one of the greatest bands I have yet to see perform on my stage!" - - Daniel Wills, Bardot Miami Blog (Aug 17, 2010)

"One of the hottest independant bands from Orlando, this is a concert that is not to be missed!" - -American Music Festival 2010 (Sep 01, 2010)

Wow!!! One of the most undiscovered acts in Orlando. Not for long. We liked the music from the start, but live is so much better!!! - Evolution of Cain Records


2012 - Full Length Album
Release: June 2012
Title: Eyes in The Dark



Stockholm was formed in the summer of 2009 among four friends who shared the same tastes and appreciation of music. The group began piecing together a small set of original songs, built around previous ideas from individual members. Soon after, completely original ideas began to emerge that eventually lead to some of Stockholm‘s best critically-received songs.

With a well-rounded sound of fresh new material, the group took to the live Orlando scene to show just what they could achieve. The then four piece were well received locally, however, front-man Chris Arter played not only keyboard, but rhythm guitar as well. Feeling rhythm guitar demanded a full-time member, the group set out to gain one fifth and final member to fill the spot; guitarist Olie Thomas joined the band, an English musician who had recently relocated to the U.S.; the quintet, and the sound, was finally whole.

After completing the roster of the group, a flood gate of new songs flowed from the group. Stockholm wrote many of its fan-favorite songs in back-to-back succession during this time, such as This Love, Hush Hush, and Bad by Design. Performing as the newly minted five-piece, the group quickly grabbed the attention of audiences and the press alike, and soon became one of the highest critically acclaimed bands in Orlando. The buzz paid off, and Stockholm was selected to showcase at the prestigious 2010 Florida Music Festival after only six months of existence as a band.

Coming off the high of such quick recognition, Stockholm recorded their first release, an EP titled 'Don’t Stop Now' in 2010, which gained them praises such as, ‘one of the top bands to watch’ from IndieRockCafe. The group felt the release needed to be complete, and recorded a demo version of their full length (now in production), called Hush Hush. The final studio version of Hush Hush is due out in the 2012.

Stockholm continues to perform throughout the country, and is currently completing their first full-length release of Hush Hush. Although while the group is frequently either recording or performing on the road, Stockholm still calls Orlando, Florida their home.
