Jaerven: Why is my guitar silent?

Meet Jaerven (Swedish word for Wolverine), the motley orchestra from Örebro, Sweden. With musical influences from the psychedelic rock and pop of the 60s and 70s. Their lyrics range from poetic kitchen sinkrealism to nature-romantic dream scenes. The music is built on a solid foundation of psychedelic rock with pop hooks and folksy prog-rock parts.

Please describe the band in a single sentence.

The music of Jaerven is built on a solid foundation of psychedelic rock with pop hooks and folksy prog-rock parts.

What’s your latest project and what are you working on right now?

This summer we released two singles and in November we’re entering the studio again to record more songs. The goal is to release an album soon.

How do you want people to feel when they listen to your music?

Wow, it sounds like these guys are having a lot of fun making music.

Major influences: Who put you on this path?

Dungen, Black Sabbath and Beatles, what can possibly go wrong?

If you had to flee the country as a band, where would you choose to live?


What’s the ‘wow factor’ that makes YOU decide which songs to keep, record and release?

The choruses are important, as well as the groove of the songs.

What’s the most hilarious band memory you can think of?

Since we are a fairly new band, we haven’t had time to make that many “hilarious” memories. But they will come for sure.

What would be the title of the band’s biography?

Why is my guitar silent? (That’s how almost every rehearsal starts when Erik troubleshoots the effect chain on his pedalboard)

What’s the next milestone you’d like to achieve as a band?

Tour Sweden and finish the album.
