Dungen is a Swedish rock band based in Stockholm. Often classified as prog or psychedelic rock, the band is fronted by singer/composer Gustav Ejstes, who writes all music and plays some of the instruments on the band's records. Despite this, Dungen plays live as a four-piece. Ejstes, who in his teens started his songwriting with hip hop, is backed live by Swedish progressive rock veteran Reine Fiske on guitar, bassist Mattias Gustavsson, and drummer Johan Holmegard (the previous drummer was Fredrik Björling).
With their unique blend of genres and captivating performances, Dungen has gained recognition both in Sweden and internationally. Their music showcases Ejstes' diverse influences and musical talent while incorporating elements of prog and psychedelic rock.
