Pascal is a quite unique band. A trio joined together in their love for noisy rock with marvellous melodies all served with a punky twist. It's the first band i'm working with singing in our native swedish language but when i see them i don't even think about that. To quote Ian from the excellent Popsheep blog, talking about one of their songs, "I don't understand Swedish, but this song makes me wish that I did.".

"The music has a garage band roughness, nice and loose. There are touches of psychobilly and touches of Britpop, scraps of Elvis, early rock, punk, metal, the Ramones, storming guitars, a variety of things. Galgberget is nothing revolutionary, but it’s full of heart and commitment. When Isak Sundström screams, it’s not a stage-managed stadium cockrock scream, it’s a good, full yell of pleasure. Isn’t it glorious, the musicians seem to be asking, to make this much noise, to be alive like this?" (Deanne Sole, Popmatters)

Pascal are: Manuela Degoveia [bass, vocals] Isak Sundström [guitar, vocals]
and Mimmi Skog [drums]

VIDEO Jonnie
The video for Jonnie was a one-shot from a gig at Kägelbanan in Stockholm. It is a great opportunity to spend some time with Pascal at their favorite place, the stage.

MP3 Jonnie
The second single of their highly acclaimed debut album Förbi Fabriken. A cover of Kal P Dal's beautiful song about how esy it is for our lives to turn in wrong directions.

MP3 Förbi fabriken
A song about living in a town dominated by a large factory. Also a song about isolation/boredom and the things we do to make life funnier. But remember, the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
