The Dandelions

Stockholm-based band, The Dandelions, has been compared to The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Stooges, but you may also hear elements that remind you of The Clash and The Kinks.

The band's raw style represents garage rock. A genre that gained popularity in the early 1960s - with regional roots reaching to the late 50s - which then evolved into 1970s punk. But the garage-rock tag itself did not appear until the late 1970s, so that it could be individuated from music that became known as punk rock - popularized by Sex Pistols and The Clash. And garage rock is synonymous with 60s punk.

On the 54, from their self-titled debut EP, was included in the soundtrack for an episode of the television series One Tree Hill and Veronica Mars.

The Dandelions are sonic kindred spirits with The Hives.
