Angry Men In Stores Now on SPV Recordings

YOU SAY FRANCE & I WHISTLE released their new album Angry Men last week on SPV Recordings. The band has teamed up with to premiere their new video for the song "Attaboy". 

YOU SAY FRANCE & I WHISTLE was born out of the frustration of having played in too many "cool" pop bands without any love. In their cold Swedish environment, the band members wanted to share some colorfulness that could spread throughout people. But when every stage had a smoke machine it wasn't that easy to reach out. Though with a little bit of creative playfulness and a lot of hugs the band has since then succeeded to find a mixture of loving warmth and energetic frustration that seems to be able to reach out to almost anyone.

The band was formed in 2006 and contains five members, all from a suburb outside of Stockholm, Sweden. The first demo was released in March 2007, dressed up in a cloth cover handmade by the band members in an effort to renew the packaging of CDs.

In 2010 the shows spread throughout Sweden as the reputation spread. The buzz had takenYSF&IW to a new level: no more chasing gigs - the band got booked. In april the band headlined at the biggest rock club in Stockholm instead of New Young Pony Club (that got stuck in London due to the ash cloud thingy), in front of 700 dancing people, and in that same summer they played at two of the biggest festival in Sweden (The Peace & Love Festival and The Malmö Festival). Later that year the band played on the national TV4 morning show and Tiger Jeans Sweden chose YSF&IW for their Dressing Room Sessions campaign.

In 2011 the French fashion company Costume National (C'N'C) invited YSF&IW to Milan Fashion Week to play on their fashion show, where bands like the Killers, Temper trap and the Kills have played before them. After that the band released their EP "Angry Boy" on their own label, You Say Corporate, in Europe, and went on a 10 day tour in Germany. Around that time the music video for the song "OMG" got over 130 000 views on, the song "When Lovers Die" peaked at 17 in the Indie Disco Chart and "OMG" got plenty of air play in many radio stations around Germany.
