Stolen Deer is a pop band from the far north of Sweden. During the long and dark winters the band have been trying to create something.
Morning Peasant, their debut album released in April 2012, is a result of that half a decade of pain. Not the stinging type of pain like from putting your hand on a hot plate, but the coming and going type of pain that eats your brain from the inside. This is what makes Morning Peasant timeless. It's not associated with the best-looking rucksacks or coats from the past or present. By avoiding this, Stolen Deer have found a way to save themselves from their own creative anxiety.
Rhythm, piano and persistent discussing of guitars permeates an album led by Anton Fahlgren's voice. On top of that there are uplifting trumpets and grieving trombones making the songs something you never can reach and get a hold of with your bare hands.
After recording the album the band went to spend the winter in different places. Two of the members chose to stay in Scandinavia, while two of them went to try their luck in London.
