Social Pretender is a female fronted rock band with grunge and punk influences. All four members are settled in Stockholm, Sweden, and have been playing together since Aug 2011.
During that year they’ve been interviewed in Swedish Radio V97 and Rocket FM, played on several podcasts in different countries, reviewed in music magazines and newspapers. They also released their debut EP and had the release party at Nalen Klubb. The first track “In the Backyard of My Mind” made it to a compilation disc in the December issue of Close Up magazine.
The music consists of loud guitars, strong dynamics combined with vocals from haunted singing to distorted screaming. The rhythm section creates a groove that most believably will drag you along and make you dig your neck sore.
Especially at their live shows where they are known for the constant energy and emotion they put into their music and performance. As Patrik Wirén put it in GAFFA magazine: “The band managed the feat of delivering an incredible energy without letting the songs suffer”. You’ll get an energy boost better than any!
Their debut EP “In the Backyard of My Mind” is produced by Oscar Ammer, front man and songwriter of Stereolith, in Echobox Studios in Stockholm. It is digitally available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more since September 1st 2012.
