The Embassy is probably Swedish indie’s most important band and the secret professors behind the Göteborg sound (The Tough Alliance and Studio both named their labels after Embassy titles).
The album Futile Crimes was voted the century’s 3rd best album by 100 Swedish music people, and their follow-up Tacking is even better.Warmly breezing and elegant, yet with a certain tension under the surface. "Underclass disco" they sometimes call it themselves.
Now the professors of Göteborg indie are back after some time in the shades.This new album of retroactive, almost unreleased songs is a the same time looking back at their 10 years so far and forward to a very near future of Embassy art.
Perverting pop’s constant desire for the New, this album is made of songs recorded in the past life of The Embassy, making it a brand new retroactive product.
All tracks are non-album tracks. Most have been unavailable outside Sweden and are rare also in Sweden, some are almost impossible to find outside this album and some are never before released.
Life In the Trenches will be released on September 27 on CD, LP and digital.
