Afraid of Stairs is a shoegaze band from Gothenburg, Sweden consisting of Pontus Wallgren & Max Sjöholm. The band was conceived by Pontus Wallgren in March 2003, and some time later the band's first song, Not Today, was recorded. They were immediately signed to Labrador that put the demo version of the song on their site. The feedback from visitors including the Swedish magazine Sonic (which wrote an article about the band just because they loved the song so much) was overwhelming. The debut 7“ single was released in October 2003 to positive reviews and, newly gained, fans acclaim.
In the summer of 2005 the band started recording an EP and after hearing the finished result, Labrador dropped the band. The search for a new label that would want to release the EP started. And in the late summer of 2006 they finally found a new home at Lavender.
