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?"
