Based upon the interlocked playing of founding members Gustav Nilsson (vox, guit) and Johan Portmark (drums), who have been collaborating since 2007 in different groups.
The two met at music college but wanted to play straight forward pop instead of institutional music. They both moved to Stockholm in 2009, slowly building up an audience, and later Henrik Källström (guit) and Johannes Sandberg (bass) have completed the setup of Rooni with their gymnastic fingers and fresh ideas. The group have toured in mostly Sweden, but also in the UK, playing what often has been called Powerpop, but nowadays Rooni consider themselves playing party-oriented popmusic with stints of glam, rock and indie. It’s catchy, shimmering and driven by fast tempo made for lightspeed euforia.
