THIS EXCITING SWEDISH ROCK/POP BAND started off during the summer of 2008. The band consists of the award-winning frontwoman My Helmner, guitarist Simon Westerdahl and drummer Johannes Andersson.

SINCE THE START the band has focused on the Swedish market with great success. They have competed in several national band contests and done very well. In 2011 they competed with their song ”Go Go Go Go Go” in ”Metro on Stage” and won third place out of 2000 competitors. Throughout the years, the band has been touring extensively, by themselves, and together with other bands (Beating Hearts Tour, Atticus Invasion Tour, Spring Break Tour, etc.). The band has also been acknowledged by publications like Kings of A&R, Buzznet, Daily Unsigned, AU Review and The Round Table.

DURING APRIL, 2012, the band gained a lot of new ground. They visited Amsterdam to open for the Dutch band ”Destine” at their release-show. Not long after their return to Sweden they were announced the 9th hottest rock band of the year, out of a hundred, (even leaving great bands like The Hives behind) in the Swedish magazine Slitz. After this their songs turned up on national radio.

IN MAY, 2013, the band released their second EP, ”Hearts” and started to work with Catapult Music Group. Combining that and the release of the single ”Originals” the interest in the band has started to grow internationally. As a result of this they were invited to CMJ Music Marathon in New York late October the same year. Generating more attention from the press and some very well received showcases.

DURING 2014, the band has been in the studio with well known co-writers and producers in Sweden and recently signed with one of the biggest booking-agencies in Sweden, United Stage. Now they have created what they believe to be their best material yet and are very proud and excited to show the new songs to the world at SXSW 2015. This is sure to be an exciting year for Indevotion, so keep your eyes and ears open!
