Biography

O’Spada is a five piece based in Stockholm. Over the last year, the band’s reputation has grown in epic proportions as their unique brand of vintage pop has captivated audiences around the world.

With diverse musical backgrounds - from hip hop to hardcore - the members met studying jazz, but were joined by the will to make pop music, and decided to drop school. The result is a sound that is not only original, but insanely catchy and extremely danceable. In 2008, O’Spada was snapped up by Swedish label Despotz, which saw the band live and was instantly mesmerized.

The past year has been spent finishing O’Spada’s debut album Pay Off. It’s first single Time was released in November 2009. By then, Annie Mac, Guardian, Sunday Times Culture and The FADER were already fans.

So far, Pay Off has been released in UK, Japan, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxemburg and Holland.

Said about O’Spada:

“Was this track made in 1984? Did we just discover it as an unmarked white label mixed in with our tio’s old freestyle vinyl collection?… …This is the only single they have so far and it’s killer. We have a rollerdisco date soon, we need more, Swedes!” / The Fader

”Time is a fizzy burst of jazzy ‘fauxsetto’ female vocals over the sweetest machine R&B. Enemy is confident and crisply produced, with guitars processed to sound like synths, or vice versa. Ten Strikes, the next single, recalls Teena Marie at her Madonna-trouncing peak i.e. circa 1988’s Naked to the World. And Let Go is a ballad so sticky and squelchy it feels like being squirted by synth goo.
