Magna Carta Cartel is a group of swedish musicians, a band, that plays and writes music.
Their songs are to be seen and listened to as movie themes to movies yet unmade. Their music is of that dreamy kind, not willing to wake up knowing that life as is, is but a dream.
Some of the music is instrumental, and some of it is not. All of it is sincere.

'Valiant Visions Dawn' is Magna Carta Cartel debut EP (2008). It consists of two instrumental songs and one with vocals.
Their debut album 'Goodmorning Restrained' (2009) is an 11 track experience of what the band refers to as 'soundtracks for movies yet unmade'. With more than half the album being instrumental, the rest with vocals, it fits perfectly for all kinds of days: lonely times of wonder; thrashing a party, getting laid, hating your ex etc. This is a collection of songs with a lot of feeling to them. Or, as someone depicted the bands music:
”Magna Carta Cartel plays as they say “Radio-edited movie themes, for daily life and death”.
Their music reminds of Vangelis meeting Tom Petty, trying to reach U2, willing to be Joy Division, feeling like ABBA, longing to be Brian Eno, remembering Jean Michel Jarre, looking at Metallica, sleeping with Mike Oldfield, dancing to Koto, hunting the Beatles, killing Morricone in a duel, snorting to Moroder etc.
