My heart is a metronome started out as lead singer and guitarist Mattis Malinen’s solo project. After years of playing in various bands who later turned out to lack ambition, he set off to spend a cold February weekend at a cottage in the north of Sweden, recording the debut EP 'Sketches' by himself.
After following up the EP with a ’hobo tour’, train hopping through Europe with a guitar on his back, playing anywhere from smokey bars in Budapest to beach parties in Nice, he felt that the project needed a rhythm section. Enter Gustaf Simonsson and Felix Carlsten.
The trio clicked right away and went on to win the title as ”Sweden’s best unsigned band” on national radio, playing live on Swedens biggest TV broadcasted charity event as well as touring the UK. Following up with an EP and four singles, the band gained praise throughout Europe and the US, from blogs to radiostations, for their unique and hooky alternative rock.
On February 10, 2017 the band released their EP 'Tierp', named after Mattis’s hometown - once named the ’ugliest town in Sweden’.
Recorded in their rehearsal space, but mixed by three-time Grammy award winner Pelle Gunnerfeldt (The Hives, Refused, The Knife, Status Quo) and mastered by Robin Schmidt (Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, Black Keys, The 1975),
The title track and first single off of the EP 'Tierp' soon gained the attention of the famous UK magazine Alternative Press and can also be heard on the BAFTA Award winning reality show ”Made in Chelsea”.
