Every Million Miles is where the sirens of the city meet the great, vast nothingness.

Biography

Every Million Miles is a Swedish band within the indie and alternative rock genres. The band members’ roots is reflected in the music: A perfect mix between the cool melancholic North of Sweden, and the vibrant capital of Stockholm.

The band says it makes songs worth waiting for – the music is characterized by crescive outros that goes on forever and laconic lyrics that should spark an immediate sense of recognition with anyone who has been on the roller coaster of life for a few decades.

A brief history

The band was founded when two pairs of friends joined forces in 2008. Lead vocalist Sven Rönnqvist and keyboardist Andreas Hedlund had been writing songs together in their native Skellefteå for years. When the duo decided to move to Stockholm, they soon found natural partners in guitarists Mårten Sjölin and Paul Malmsten, who had been running a studio together.

A few years on, bass player Andreas Rolfer Wrangö and drummer Michael Sjö was brought in to complete the setup.

“It’s an example of successful online dating – it was love at first chord”, jokes Rolfer Wrangö.

The name Every Million Miles was adopted in 2016. Before then the band was known as Common Ground.

Musical influences include Band of Horses, StarsailorDeporteesKodalineMewThe PosiesHozier and Arcade Fire.

Discography

In 2012, Every Million Miles released an EP named “This is”, containing six songs. The band has been figuring frequently at Stockholm’s live music club scene ever since then.

In 2017, the band released it’s second EP named “Forgotten”, containing six songs including hit single “Killing The Start”.

The band’s full length debut “Release Me” is due in the fall of 2018. Three singles from the album have been released so far, Body Of Sound, Hold On and Home.

“A good song should never need to be explained. In my opinion, talking about what your music means would kill much of the listener’s experience”, says lead vocalist Sven Rönnqvist.
