We are Groenalund, a new band from Germany. We want to make a difference in terms of quality of todays pop-music.
We remember the sonic experience and the joy of listening to old analogue records, recorded in real recording-studios with real instruments and real singers and musicians. We appreciate the well built structure of cleverly written pop-songs; we adore sensual arrangements, we love vintage-synthesizer that were build before 1983 and all kinds of real Guitar- and Keyboardplaying; we prefer real drums and a punchy bass played by groovy experts of their instrument. We get lost in ecstatic vocal arrangements and catchy Melodies. To make a long story short: we really love music!
We don't stare at the charts, by using the computer like any average producer, by clicking through some standard-sounds and then singing heavily auto-tuned over it. That way of production does not fit to our sense of quality. It hurts our ears. We don't want to hear that soulless music anymore.
If you think and feel the same? Groenalund is for you!
Groenalund is Renaissance not Retro!
We started as big Abba-fans, but did not want to add an other cover-group, so we decided to take the longer path by writing new songs, with the sense of quality, melody and production value in mind, the four Swedes are famous for. With all respect we somehow want to continue in 2017, where Abba stopped in 1983 - in our own view, with our own words and melodies, reflecting our lives in 2017.
To be clear: we don’t steal ideas, we are just deeply influenced by the classic Abba-Albums, like Abba was influenced by the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Maybe you would like to join us during the recording process and what comes afterwards.
