The Embassy is guitarist/vocalist Fredrik and keyboardist/programmer Torbjörn from Sweden. They’ve been making lovely synth pop (almost synth folk) under the label SRVC since the early 2000s. I’ve been waiting for them to come out with a new full length for some time now. SRVC just announced the band will be releasing Life In Trenches later this month…. oh joy!
Here’s a little personal background info…. a few years back SRVC founder Ola came to Miami along with Torbjörn for a little vacay. Naturally we invited them to WVUM for a guest DJ set and ended up becoming friends with them. I couldn’t pronounce Torbjörn’s name so I started calling him Turbo (I think that name may have stuck lol). Anyway we took the guys out for a Magic City experience and made sure they even popped some bubbly with Ludacris. Later that year I went to visit them in Sweden where they showed me an incredible time: we drank beer by the water, went to beautiful parks, visited some pretty cool bars, ate meatballs, I even got to meet Turbo’s strange little dog and go shopping for Timberlands with him. These guys are by far some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and their music is just as lovely.
