About the album
The alternative pop-band Kostcirkeln releases their EP no. 2 in a planned trilogy. This time the release is solely digital: A download code enclosed in a remarkable matchbox.
In 2012, ”Bästa vän” was released on vinyl as the first part of an EP trilogy. Now the second part, Innehåll: Musik (Content: Music) is here. It reveals Kostcirkeln's honest idea of pop music today. The music and lyrics have a naïve and sweet expression, added with energetic anarchy and a touch of grandmother-nostalgia. The songs are backed up by sparkling arrangements with sharp edges.
Kostcirklen consists of five strong-headed individuals who jointly create a constantly changing and wondrous sound scape. The front singer and composer Qarin Wikström and the musicians in Kostcirkeln are all very active on the Copenhagen music scene, and play with various artists such as: Savage Rose, Anders Mathiasen (Murder), Mikkel Hess, Pinkunoizu, Eggs Laid By Tigers, Big Bombastic Collective, just to mention a few.

"I´d like to stay in this blue green summer patio. We have reached a drowsy year 2013, where words such as pop has become powderized. This should be celebrated with a special festival. The sun never sets in this music…Maximum giggle and triumph of a Swedish-Danish collaboration."
