Urban Cone

Indie Current: Is there any meaning behind the name Urban Cone?

Urban Cone: We're all from the centre of Stockholm, living the "city" life. Plus we all thought it was a cool name, and when Tim our guitarist drew our logo (the pine cone) it felt like the obvious choice.

IC: You guys classify yourselves as "Indie-Electro-Rock" on your Facebook page, but which genre do you guys feel you fall most into?

UC: We actually don't think about it much. Our music is pretty hard to place. Just compare a song like Black Ocean and Urban Photograph. Creating different types of songs comes natural to us and we have no attempt to stop doing so.

IC: With so many successful artists already from Sweden, do you think this has helped you guys get your name out there, or has it been much more difficult with so many great artists to follow-up?

UC: We haven't thought of this much. But maybe it has helped us. Our ambitions are so high and we compare ourselves to the really big names out there. -[Indie Current]

Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, oddly-named electro-rock ensemble Urban Cone have released a string of EPs over the last two years, and manage that mopey-but-danceable vibe that the Swedes seem to be masters of. You can stream the Our Youth EP and check out a couple videos below.

The band will be in America this week for shows on both coasts, including two in NYC: Thursday (1/24) at Mercury Lounge with Ski Lodge (tickets), and then Friday (1/25) at Glasslands with WIM (tickets). Those were both supposed to be with Saint Lou Lou who canceled their American tour.

A list of all Urban Cone tour dates, videos and streams are below.

We actually don't think about it much..just the hair, electro indie pop, and being vapid comes natural to us and we have no attempt to stop doing so. Our music is pretty hard to place.

the only festival that matters now is Austin Psych Fest - all others are weak in comparision; regardless of music genres / festival focus

I love Urban Cone, since I went to their concert i Stockholm this summer, it hasn't been one day I haven't listen to their music. To all of you who left those awful comments - you have no idea what you're talking about! If you went to one of their concerts, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.
