Kristoffer Ragnstam Has Flashdancers Over for Breakfast

Watch the video for "Breakfast by the Mattress" from his U.S. debut Sweet Bills

Kristoffer Ragnstam is more than just the latest product of the Swedish indie mill. He started out as a drummer, and after recording a rough EP from instruments he’d built and collected (but technically didn’t play) Ragnstam created enough buzz to pick up a U.S. deal and a proper backup band for his debut full-length Sweet Bills (out now on Bluhammock Music). One of the tracks from the recent release, “Breakfast by the Mattress,” pairs incomprehensible lyrics and uncontainable riffs for a dance rock achievement a la Scissor Sisters. In the video, the flashdancers sport leg warmers, bright spandex, and some bizarre choreography, while Ragnstam counters with a simple black hoodie and traditional frontman stance.
