Since forming in late 2009 the five-piece outfit has been entertaining fans in the greater Philadelphia region and beyond. With sincere lyrics characteristic of Americana folk combined with the intense melodies of Indie-Rock, New Sweden's sound is a distinct and complex fusion of raw emotion wrapped up and presented in an artful array of musical flair. voted best band in Delaware for three consecutive years at the Tri-State Indie Music Awards, New Sweden's sound has been described by WXPN's John Vetesse as an instantly like-able blend: a little bit of Bright Eyes, a little bit of The Avett Brothers, a little bit of The Clash.
