Not heard of Urban Cone? This piece of indie-pop is a real summer anthem

Off the back of their full length album ‘Polaroid Memories released via Universal earlier this month, the Swedish quintet are back with a stirring visual accompaniment to ‘Come Back To Me’. The new video offers a glimpse of a summer yet to come and is one of the most up-lifting tracks of 2015.

This video comes ahead of the band’s appearance on a Scandinavian tour, then onto Australian shores for ‘Splendour In The Grass’, finally supporting ‘Everything Everything’ on their festival sideshows.

‘Urban Cone’ is Rasmus Flyckt (Vocals/Keyboard), Emil Gustafsson (Vocals/Bass), Magnus Folkö (Drums), Tim Formgren (Guitar), and Jacob William Sjöberg (Piano) – five former high-school friends from Stockholm.

After four years together, the group remains dedicated to pushing the boundaries of their musical comfort zones. “When we create music, we love to explore the subtleties and use non-traditional sounds,” notes Folkö. “Things that you haven’t heard before and wonder ‘what is this?’ On ‘We Are Skeletons,’ we sampled Rasmus’ cat and put it in the song. I don’t think people use cats as instruments often. That’s one of the most important things to us, to contribute new sounds and look for new ways to make music. That’s what we’re all about.
