MF/MB/ Are Confused

MF/MB/ is countryside and city streets, it’s woods and concrete, cigarettes and alcohol, hope and despair, clubs and saunas, autobahn and bad English. It’s the anger and disillusion of performing in Berlin as 18 year olds and then going back to Sweden to play in small pubs in the middle of nowhere for people who’d rather listen to Basshunter. MF/MB/ is a terrible band name. MF/MB/ is self confidence and bad conscience. Lack of money. Good looks. Clothes. Never looking back, always doing the same mistakes. It’s about frequent stupid questions in interviews - “Christine, how does it feel being the only girl in the band?” – and the inability to give the answers those questions deserve. MF/MB/ is a thousand compromises from a million ideas. It’s about filling up empty holes. It’s about staying alive by playing live. The oxygen on stage. Eyes of the audience. The hand claps and the shouts.

MF/MB/ just released their debut album Folded on the Malmo label Adrian Recordings  and it's just as confusing as the above paragraph but in all the best possible ways.  I have no idea what they're about and apparently they don't either, but it's OK when you can crank out an album as strong as Folded is.  So why they seek out some psychiatric help and attempt to figure what it's all about download away.
