The Mellowmen

Though they will have exactly the same name being a Four Freshmen-style pop vocal band of the 1950s (most widely known for singing backup with Elvis Presley on many film soundtracks and because of their bass singer, Thurl Ravenscroft, who continued to sing “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”), the Swedish group known as the Mellowmen consider their musical cues from another period. Echoes of AM radio circa 1967-1977 percolate with the Mellowmen’s music, through the Beatles and Wings through Elton John, Neil Gemstone, Electric powered Light Orchestra, and countless precious one-hit wonders. Nevertheless, vocalist, songwriter, and bandleader Andreas Nyberg avoids the fatal mistake of using vintage mimicry because of its personal ends, keeping his inspirations like a starting place for his catchy indie pop music instead of wanting to replicate his idols’ music. Nyberg, a keyboardist, began the Mellowmen in 2001, originally like a studio room task. Drafting guitarists Anders Lofgren and Johan Antonsson, bassist Jonas Lofgren, and drummer Peter Nyman to complete his tracks, Nyberg created the band’s ornate debut EP, Escape Shape using the Mellowmen, on the next 3 years. Following the four-song EP’s 2004 launch, the Mellowmen started their 1st live times while documenting their debut full-length, 2006’s Tomorrow’s Audio Today. American psychedelic pop label Rainbow Quartz certified the recording and re-released it with fresh artwork and two extra tracks in early 2007.
