Introduction for newcomers: Welcome! Brain is a rock band. Maybe you thought it had something to do with that lump between your shoulders. Well, that is wrong. It’s a rock band. This is what’s going on inside. Our head office is in Stockholm, Sweden. Here we write, record and produce original melodic rock music in a 70’s style with an influence from blues, progressive rock and large doses of dopamine. It’s simply Brain chemistry.
Yes, it is true. While mother Earth has been spinning, Brain cells have been busy. We can now announce that our latest recorded single has reached the not completely unknown global streaming platform Spotify. Please leave us a note on Facebook on what you think about it. Hope you like it!

Drum… Continue reading New recording sessions

So finally, I got my first job in a… Continue reading Eric Lindesvärd
