Nala is an alternative rock band based in Gothenburg, Sweden.
With members from Västerbotten and Bohuslän, they're one of the most genuine and colorful live acts in the scene.
The passion for creating music and performing live is everything they're about.
Joy, heavy grooves and a huge amount of energy permeate all their concerts, and whether it's a gig in a small pub or at a big festival: the band thrives on stage, being themselves and loving what they do!
The summer of '17 is now over, and for Nala there were some successful concerts at some of Sweden's biggest festivals.
"Putte i Parken" in Karlstad, "Malmöfestivalen" in Malmö and
"Kulturkalaset" in the hometown of Gothenburg, at the classic venue of Brewhouse.
Prior to that, the debut EP was recorded at Spinroad Recording Studios, with British top producer Pedro Ferreira
(The Darkness, Avatar, Meatloaf, Imogen Heap et al.).
The result was the EP "Woman", released on November 10, 2017.
Two singles "How, When & Where" & "Lost" were released previously during the late summer .
Early '17 the two-track single "Safe Place" was released on Spotify, after two days at Nobel Street Studios, also in Gothenburg.
Well received, this resulted in a handful of gigs at Sticky Fingers during the year, one of the city's most well-know rock clubs. The last show being support for swedish band Bonafide on Top Floor.
The aim is now set to 2018, a new and exciting chapter for the band.
With her mother's wine-red Opel, Liselotte drove 120 swedish miles south and ended up in Tjuvkil. Far out in the countryside, noise was heard from a little cottage that lay among the big fields.
As she stepped inside, she was met by three bewildered souls: Palle, Victor and Skutt.
On a surface of 10 sqm2 a bed, a desktop and a kitchenette were stuffed together with two guitar amplifiers, a home-built bass box and an oversized drum kit.
Among strange instruments and obscure furnishing was the smell of cigarettes, alcohol, insecurity and big dreams.
Without really knowing each other, an acquaintance was made through jamsessions based on smoky riffs, hectic drums and not-so-well-articulated vocals, that was sung through a shitty guitar amp.
One might think they should've stopped right then and there, but shame on those who give up to soon.
More bass was needed.
The aim was set at Calle from Kungälv, a somewhat busy figure.
After several persistent attempts to bring him in, he finally had to succumb.
Calle was also stuffed inside the cottage, and Nala took its form.
To talk about what's being avoided.
To face the sides of yourself that are hard to accept.
To find a way to process all of your shit.
The pursuit of a purpose and a desire to improve oneself.
Insecurity and destructiveness. Joy and love.
We are Nala.
