    Bad Thoughts
Some things are meant to happen. It was clear from the start that Erik and Stefan, the two members of Oxen, would meet in an early age, in a small village in the middle of Sweden.
It’s not strange at all. It is how it’s supposed to be. When they were 12 years old they started their first band, and since then they have followed each other through first loves, first beers and moving to Stockholm. In February 2016, the band we know as Oxen, was born.
If you look at Oxen from the outside, you probably won’t spot anything out of the ordinary. We all have heard the story before. Two friends who make guitar-based indie rock, that’s nothing new, however if you try to get under their skin you will find more layers, which will make you to get to know this dynamic duo closer. According to Oxen they aren’t trying to follow trends or, for that matter, create new ones. Oxen creates the music they want to make in the moment, but by listening closely you will hear inspiration from British greats like The Beatles and The Stone Roses, and bands from other continents like Pixies and MGMT. In a quirky studio in a Stockholm suburb, where bands like Mando Diao also took their first steps, the guys meet each other daily for a few intense rounds of foosball followed by thorough studio work.
