“Indiepop with high intensity and a sense of presence”
“The music goes from being dreamy and playful to powerful and sobering”
“Expressive singing that makes you listen and be moved”
Castlewoods creates music with high intensity and a sense of presence, music that goes from being dreamy and playful to powerful and sobering. With Nordic pop and an Americanabackdrop, the band paints a fairytale landscape, lyrically and musically.
The band is fronted by Sofia Mono Assarson and Maja Fredriksson, who met during a rehearsal for a tour with a reggae band. The name of the band hints at Gothenburg patriotism, and the band was formed in a cottage in Slottsskogen (Castlewoods), a forest in Gothenburg, where Castlewoods’ winding melodies and distinctive voice emerged. The percussionist Johanna Lannerö completes the group.
Castlewoods is a passionate indie folk band imbued with never-ending energy, love, and a desire to express itself through music. In the band’s back pocket are a number of live gigs, a collaboration with José Gonzáles and a recorded album that will be released in april 2017.
