Holiday for Strings don't make music, they create magic carpet rides.
The band is made up of five Swedish guys, of which three are professional chefs and the other two John from Peter, Bjorn and John, and Pony,
from Thieves Like Us.
The group's music is a subtle mixture of post rock, kraut rock, pop, disco, dub and some other styles.
Their first full-length release came out in 2006 on Stilll recordings. The album was described by the music magazine Wire as "an unholy
alliance between The Monochrome Set and the B52's."
In 2008 they recorded a 3 song EP, Two of You, released as a double 7" on Kanine Records NYC (Chairlift, Holy Hail, the Whip, etc).
The title track was remixed by The Toxic Avenger, and Holiday for Strings toured the UK.
The 2010 album, Favorite Flavor, released on SeaYou records (Paper bird, Thieves Like Us, Japanther, etc), was recorded at the imperial
Murlyn studios, just outside of Stockholm, a wooden mansion built in the 1600's which originally was the king's summertime and love get-away.
2011 brings the documentary style video for the soul crushing Unwilling/Not able radio edit, as well as an EP with Dance mixes.
