U-Boats Q&A

Band name: 

Where are you from? 
We are from Stockholm, Sweden.
Who is in your band?
Carl Nordling (guitars), Pontus Qviberg (vocals and guitars) and Wilhelm Lindqvist (drums and backing vocals).

How would you describe yourselves? 
Three old friends with a big passion for music and creativity. We have been playing as a band for more than five years so we have a big friendship and comradery cemented in the band. We really have fun together, whether we are playing music or just hanging out drinking beer we always get along fine.

Who are your main influences musically? 
Mainly the alternative rock scene from the 90s, bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Jeff Buckley, My Bloody Valentine etc but we listen to all kinds of music as well.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Spreading our music to as many people as possible, and keeping the creative process alive and evolving.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
I would say when we released our first EP last autumn. It was the culmination of a long process we had worked on together for such a long period of time.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Probably when our former stand-in bass player arrived 50 minutes late for a gig very drunk, which did not improve on his bass playing let me tell you that.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I would say "Sertraline", because it really shows our influences and our own impression of them. Its a song that keeps on taking you in a new direction in a way.

Where can we listen to it?
