About The Rhymes
The Rhymes releases Elevator EP

The Rhymes drop Elevator, the first EP of the Swedish stage dive poppers. An elevation of the experience since the celebrated self-titled debut album of 2020, with songs about the climate crisis, death, intimacy, and moving on.

- We recorded the four songs this Summer. Our Swedish tour and German tour had been canceled, so we had an abundance of time, both no income from gigs.

A crowdfunding campaign saved the band, and the four songs of the EP could be finished thanks to the devoted support of fans.

- The sound of the EP is 90's Swindle music discovering arena rock and getting hubris. It sounds like Wannadies supporting Bruce Springsteen at Olympiastadion. We are so grateful for the support from our fans, and these songs belong to them.

During the band's live shows the audience often gets invited onstage, and this borderless feeling lifts the sound of the EP:

- The songs on Elevator are about taking off, together and by yourself. But also elevating those who've left us and realize how they've lifted us.

The Rhymes's self-titled debut album was praised for its energy and melodies in both Swedish and German press, and the album singles rotated on Swedish radio and were played in German, American, and Austrian radio.

The Rhymes have since formed in 2016 had almost 100 gigs in England, Germany, Norway, Finland, and Sweden, among them supporting Mando Diao at sold out 1 650 capacity venue Cirkus in Stockholm.

The Rhymes about the track ’get High Buy Clothes’:
’’This song is about the consciously blind person. The one that is an online shopaholic, loving the fact that the Summers are getting longer and warmer, and whose life won’t be defined by the existential crisis of climate change. We wanted to write a chorus that this kind of person happily sings along to and melodies that vibrated from that kind of carelessness.’’

The Rhymes about the track Autobahn:
This song is about moving on. The moment when you've just turned the page and see your former self fade away while new goals appear on the horizon.

The song was created when Tomas, singer in the Rhymes, asked the group's producer Kevin Hamring, who just lost his dad to a struggle with mental illness, to write the lyrics of the song.

This song is a way to welcome change, and appreciate what you've been through.
