Malmö is a small city and it was just a matter of time before Den Svenska Tystnaden would emerge. Pontus Wickman had lived there for a long time with his songs and had wasted much time and money on failed recording and bands that came to nothing. Their paths had crossed before but in late 2006 Pontus met up with John Bjerkert and then Rickard Flygel. John and Rickard had played together for a long time with Emil Jensen and David Fridlund. Pontus had previously had a stint as a base player in a temporarily reunited Björns Vänner. Common streets, common friends. Malmö isn’t bigger than that. When David And The Citizens needed a substitute bass player for what was going to be their last tour, Pontus was asked. John was already in the band and he and Pontus found themselves sharing the same back seat and hotel room and soon became friends. In spring 2007 David And The Citizens dissolved for good and Pontus took John on to his own project. John brought along Richard and Den Svenska Tystnaden played their first chords. In 2011 the band released their self titled debut album and musically they broadens the concept of what a Swedish singing band are supposed to do. The music is some sort of afro-shoegazer-pop, influenced by everything from Neil Young to Kraftwerk. Lyrics deal with the reality of the little man, the 9 to 5 workers. No matter where the story takes place, there’s a struggle. There’s always a struggle.
