Haunting, Dido-Like Songs from Suburban Seattle

by | Feb 25, 2008

I’m just now getting wind of Kate Tucker & the Sons of Sweden, an emotional and melodic pop band from Ballard, WA.


I picked up a free track, “Faster Than Cars Drive,” off their new self-titled album from the SXSW site. The band will be performing at the industry event in Austin on Wednesday, March 12th.

Their self-titled debut was recorded and produced by Ryan Hadlock (Blonde Redhead, Metric, The Gossip), at Bear Creek Studio in February 2007. The record was released October 30, 2007 to significant critical acclaim. iTunes featured it on their Indie page and Starbucks stores nationwide continue to play it daily.

Seattle’s Sound Magazine named Kate Tucker & the Sons of Sweden as “One of 10 Bands to Watch in 2008.”
