Les Big Byrd

Les Big Byrd is a psych-leaning indie act formed in Stockholm, Sweden around 2011 by Joakim Åhlund and Frans Johansson. With their love for experimental rock sounds, the duo joined forces with former Fireside drummer Nino Keller and keyboardist Konie to create Les Big Byrd. The band's music is a blend of garage-flavored rock and electronic elements, showcasing their expertise as music heads and studio engineers.

In 2014, Les Big Byrd released their debut album *They Worshipped Cats*, which was born out of a chance encounter at a record store with Anton Newcombe from Brian Jonestown Massacre. This meeting led to an invitation to Newcombe's Berlin studios where they jammed together for several days. Alongside the album release, the band also put out the vinyl-only companion piece *Back to Bagarmossen 10"*. Both releases received critical acclaim and further established Les Big Byrd as an influential force in the Swedish underground music scene.
