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.
