The Wannadies are one of Sweden’s sweetest secrets, a band that was lucky enough to look beyond the pop sensations of Abba, Ace of Base, and Roxette to establish a career inside modern rock.
Hailing from Skelleftea, the Wannadies formed in the late ’80s and brought Sweden’s alternative rock scene to the forefront nearly a decade later. Pär Wiksten (vocals/guitar), Stefan Schönfeldt (guitar), Fredrik Schönfeldt (bass), Gunnar Karlsson (drums), and Christina Bergmark (organ) issued two independent albums in the early ’90s, but it wasn’t until 1995 that the Wannadies truly got what they were looking for.
Their sound was more glossy and the U.K. quickly took notice. A deal with Indolent led to the release of a third album, entitled Be a Girl. Singles “You & Me Song” and “Might Be Stars” crashed the U.K.’s Top 20 and became NME favorites.
