# FYR006

This is the second release from the swedish band Krokodil. Krokodil is the result of a collaboration between guitarist Klas Gullbrand and bassplayer Palle Sollinger. They started playing together about two years ago when they both felt a need to create something new and fresh. Two albums and numerous liveshows later, the music is still evolving. Jazz may be their biggest influence but they don't see themselves as a strict jazzband, rather as a band willing to incorporate different attitudes, sounds and ways of playing into their music. Having said that, improvisation and interplay are still a big part of what they do. Somtimes sounding intimate, fragile, melodic, somtimes outbursting, loud, and dramatic, the band always perform music with high presence and intensity.

Klas Gullbrand - guitar, FX & keyboard
Palle Sollinger - double bass, FX & piano
Ola Hultgren - drums & percussion
Fredrik Hermansson - piano

"...all with enough of originality to be worth listening to..."

- Svenska Dagbladet (3 of 6)

"...no matter if Krokodil works as a duo or a trio; they do have a interesting sound..."

- Dagens Nyheter (3 of 5)
