Skenet artist

Stellar electric instrumental folk rock from the 21st century. Skenet is a band of four young and fearless Swedes who grew up together in the vibrant Nordic folk-music scene that provides the roots of their sound. As kids playing the violin together, they became fast friends while exploring the language of music. Today, the collaboration - like their friendship - continues to grow. In Skenet, that violin still creates the melody and voice, but adding drums, electric guitar, bass, and moog makes for a unique combination of Nordic roots music and electric rock. While some of the melodies date from the 1800s, most are original compositions by siblings Lena and Staffan Jonsson. The themes may be inspired by a rich tradition, but the end result is something entirely new: instrumental, folk-rocking, and psychedelic! Skenet released their debut album March 2015, preceded by two official videos for the singles 'Allting rullar' and 'Mr D'. Make sure to check them out in the media section.
