Dungen | Artist
World's Best Online Record Collection
Dungen is a Swedish rock band formed 1999 in Stockholm, Sweden, fronted by singer/composer Gustav Ejstes with support members Reine Fiske (guitar), Mattias Gustavsson (bass) and Johan Holmegard (drums). Ejstes writes all music and plays the majority of instruments on the band's records, however they perform live as a four-piece. Primarily a psychedelic rock band, Dungen is also influenced by Swedish folk music, classic rock, progressive rock, garage rock and alternative rock. Although Dungen's songs are sung entirely in Swedish, 2004's excellent Ta det lugnt albums was acclaimed within indie rock circles and established the band's international reputation. This resulted in the band headlining two US tours and landing distribution deals in the US and UK. In 2014 the group undertook a project to create an instrumental score for the 1926 animated film The Adventures of Prince Achmed to be performed live with the film. Standout albums include Ta det lugnt, Stadsvandringar, Tio bitar, 4, and the 2017 re-mix compilation Häxan (Versions by Prins Thomas).
