Biography

Active: 1990s
Country Of origin: Scandinavia

Unrelated to the folk singer-songwriter of the early 70s who travelled under the same name, the 90s Melony were a trio from Stockholm, Sweden, who specialized in angular but commercial pop rock. The band comprised comic book translator Peter Kvint (guitar/vocals), Mana Eriksson (drums) and Gunnar Norden (bass), who originally formed to play at a friend’s wedding. Following a domestic-only EP for Sweden’s Soap label, they were signed by Minty Fresh Records’ president Jim Powers for American and mainstream European releases in 1997. A debut album, Satisfaction, followed in August 1997, the songs dominated by pleasing hooks and melodies and Kvint’s individualistic take on American pop culture - the best examples being ‘Big Dipper’ and ‘Barbra Streisand Nose’.~ Rovi
