To All My Friends
"Astronauts, dirty nails and other more or less important things are exactly what swedish indiefolkpopduo To All My Friends sing about. Accompanied by instruments such as banjo, autoharp, accordion, melodica and guitar they mold beautiful tunes in the storytelling tradition of american folk music and turn it into something of their own, right here and right now.

The journey of To All My Friends began somewhere in the southern parts of Sweden when band members Frida Alkestrand and Tove Möller got to know each other through the feminist activist group Radical Cheerleaders, but didn’t take form until 2008 when they both found themselves in the city of opportunities Berlin and started writing songs together.

In the summer of 2010 the self titled debut album was released, and since then To All My Friends have made hands clap and hearts melt throughout Sweden and Europe in a seemlessly never ending stream of gigs. During a few stormy, winter weekends 2011/2012 Tove and Frida took the train up and down and back and forth to Gothenburg to record a second album. On valentine’s day, february 14th 2012, they release their second album ”Ride With Me”."
