Slim Loris was in idéa formed in the heads of singer/bass player Mattias Cederstam and guitarist Robert Barrefelt in 2009. The duo was soon accompanied by drummer Jonas Ellenberg and singer/guitarist Leon Lindström.
As the leading lights of Scandicana, the Swedish cousin of Americana, Slim Loris have received glowing tributes from the likes of Huffington Post and AXS. After releasing three albums however the band was forced to take a break due to some personal setbacks.
Regrouping in 2017 Slim Loris changed their musical direction by returning to their early influences, from UK 60’s Beat to 90’s Indie. A goal was set to release a new EP every year. The restart was marked by “Wild and Untamed”, released on May 2nd, 2018. Produced by Pecka Hammarstedt in Olga Studios and with cover art painted by the acclaimed Swedish artist, Emil Grönholm (http://www.emilgronholm.com/), with world-renowned jazz/funk saxophonist Per Ruskträsk Johansson makes a guest appearance on the song Hideaway.
