What do you have in your drinking water in Sweden? It was an open question an American journalist used when he wrote about the fact that Sweden gives birth to so many musical talents. An interesting question but nothing that the Stockholm duo Leo Drougge and August Hellsing have reflected too much upon. When they are asked the question themselves August respond’s swiftly “We have inherited mainly from ABBA which is the closest we get musical perfection. So it is in our blood rather than in our water.”
August 28 and Leo 28 years work under the name Lo-Fi-Fnk creating catchy electronic pop music for nearly ten years. They met back in high school and became friends when August commented on Leo’s New Orleans Jazz T-shirt.They found a common love of music and in 2002 came the first EP “We Is” on Swedish label La Vida Locash (Adrian Lux, Alexis Weak). The debut album “Boylife” that includes the singles “Change Channel” and “Wake Up” was released in 2006. British indie label Moshi Moshi nodded approvingly and quickly licensed “Boylife” and subsequently years of touring around the world soon took over.
LFF gained witty fans among musicians and the list of artists they’ve remixed is long – Mika, Architecture in Helsinki, Casiokids, Le Tigre, Yelle & most recently Foster The People is only a small sample. Nothing that has risen to their heads especially – but something that definitely contributed to the duo taking the bulk of five years to compile their second album “The Last Summer”. The first single “Boom” is already a favorite at Swedish Radio and with a solid remix package ready to be released in August will LFF’s music to reach it through to the dance floor at home and in the big wide world.
