At this point, they owe us naturally reformed, with Kristoffer Ragnstam – known for decades for his DIY-attitude and gritty productions – taking on the producer and composer role and Anders Rane as main co- writer and musician. Along with Rane, well-known names such as Timo Räisänen, Markus Hasselblom, Per Eklund and Klabbe Hörngren joined the gang of co-writers, and passionated musicians such as Axel Sjöberg (Graveyard), Jennifer Israelsson (Honeymoon Disease, Hot Breath), Viktor Turegård (Franska Trion) and Joel Lundberg have contributed in their own way to they owe us unique soundscape.
