In 1995 a gang of teenagers and childhood friends formed my Orchard. In December 2008 they decided that it was over and held a funeral concert for fans and friends. At a fully packed evening at rock club Pipeline they did their last concert on the 26th of December and friends and other bands joined in and contributed and the whole thing was filmed to be included in a documentary by Camilla Söderberg which follows the band from the early days until now.
They toured Sweden a lot but also made gigs in London and New York and have been a frequent guest at national radio P3s playlist. Quite a lot of their songs have also made it to films and TV-games. Their first two albums Grebo (1999), Five Years Long and Tall as A Dream (2001) and the EP Too Cool for School were produced by new wave legend and John Peel-favourite Jörgen Cremonese. Their debut album featured indie pop princess Marit Bergman on several tracks and she also joined the band on vocals and keyboards for the Popstad 1999 radioshow.
Their third album Silhouettes (2004) was their most successful both artistically and commercially and is by now almost sold out. A List of Thing was frequently played on national radio and the video had high rotation both on ZTV and MTV
We decided to mix the tracks recorded for the bands never finished 4th album to give away at the funeral gig but the result was so great that we turned it into a proper release in 622 numbered copies of which 400 was sold at the funeral gig so that only 200 will be for sale.
It’s with great pride we release the bands final and best album. It shows a band at their best. Still adventurous but with a lot more skill and the material rages from 3 minutes pop songs to long dreamlike songs.
Later this year we will release a box with all their records in a limited edition and in fall 2009 the film Teenage Dreams will premiere.
