Allt Du Gör Och Att Du Finns made the unexpecting indiekids in Mares popular overnight. The youngsters from Uppsala uploaded the song to Spotify so their friends could listen to it when all the sudden the song took on a life of its own. Today, it has been streamed over 16 million times. This caught the attention of several record labels, all eager to get the band’s signatures. Since then Mares has demonstrated that they are anything but a one-hit wonder. Quite the opposite: Mares talent for songwriting and performing is undeniable. Their highly danceable indie pop comes with infectious disco elements, all mixed with a poetic, voluble word play. If Annika Norlin from Säkert! had a lovechild with Phoenix, Mares would be it.
Mares followed the viral success Allt Du Gör Och Att Du Finns with equally hyped songs such as Höga klackar, Cyklar ni så springer jag and 95 – all going gold or platinum as well as receiving lots of radio airtime. This year, the band was ready for their most ambitious effort yet: The EP Rock’n’Roll Will Never Die. On this sleek piece of work Mares enriched their sonic expression with more depth, yet staying true to their contemporary, groovy take on indie pop. An EP that this productive gang followed with the soulful song Sjutton, the first taste from their highly anticipated debut album planned for spring 2019. This summer at Lollapalooza, Mares will come to fulfill their own prophecy: Rock’n’roll Will Never Die.
