Biography

act from Gävle, Sweden in the veins of bands like Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft and Nitzer Ebb. The members are Gustav Jansson (live keys, songwriting) and Jonatan Löfstedt (singing, songwriting).

Sturm Café were among the first bands to join the revival of old school EBM (otherwise often called anhalt EBM) and hence are considered veterans of the genre. Their history goes as far back as 2001, and from this starting point they produced a handful demo releases in mp3 format only. Their first official CD release was self-released EP “Radiosüchtig” (2003), which later also appeared in their debut album “So Seelisch, So Schön!” (2005, on Progress Productions) which brought great success. By this time the band was getting recognized as catchy and energy-filled EBM, which brought Sturm Café to audiences both in Scandinavia and Germany.

Progress Productions released a shorter EP entitled “Tot EP” in 2008. By this time Sturm Café differentiated themselves strictly from the standard sounds that were frequent in the reviving of old school ebm scene. Instead of hard, masculine, and monotonic sounds, Sturm Café took the same concept and presented it in a more playful and melodic format, getting rid of monotonic and minimal approach by expanding their sounds with varying synths and professional vocal performances. This approach brought them to two tracks in 2009 that were initially self-released, but which later became big hits: Der Löwe and Scheissnormal.
