Gothenburg band Lucknow Pact was formed in 2002 by Hazel Markus Blom, Mischa Hayman, Andrew Hartman and Lars Nordgren. They soon became a quartet when keyboardist Carl-Magnus Berger joined the in 2003. The basic idea was to take 80's and 90's guitar-based indie pop to a new level. By combining simple popharmonier with a heavy rhythm section, airy guitars and passionate vocals had found a way to something new. After the first single "A few drinks, a few laughs" released in 2004, they began to be seen and heard more and more on the Swedish indie scene.
