Suburban Kids with Biblical Names
Named after a lyric from the track ‘people’ by the Silver Jews, Suburban Kids With Biblical Names are a twee electro-pop outfit that couldn't be from anywhere else but Sweden!
Their playful and extremely catchy pop music caught the ears of Sonic Magazine in early 2004 who subsequently put out their debut release as part of a Sonic compilation. Soon after that they signed to Labrador Records, who in 2005 released the critically acclaimed album '#3'. Still working on the follow-up album, SKWBN are taking a quick break to release their new track 'God Save Roger Nichols' via OIB Records.

After a way too long hiatus, Sweden's finest electro-twee-pop outfit are back with the 4 minute pop opus 'God Save Roger Nichols'.

It's a sure fire indie-disco floor filler.

"Delicate vocals and infectious melodies, this may be the perfect four-track EP for those with a sweet tooth. The excellently mixed track listing means that the twee balance is just right, a necessity as we all know what happens when you intake too much sugar. You get the jitters." – The Line of Best Fit
