Aquadays
aquadays.

History
Aquadays consists of Lisa Aamot (Farfisa Organ), Martin Aamot
(Fender Guitar, Roland Synthesizer, Rhythm Machines and Vocals),
Klara Albinsson (Vocals), and Sarah Assbring (Vocals).

The group was formed, under the name Somersault, in November
1993 in Alingsås, a small town in western Sweden. In 1996, the
original vocalist Klara Albinsson left the band and shortly after that, the
band moved to Gothenburg, where they met their new singer Sarah
Assbring. In March 1998, Sarah left the band, but the remaining
members Martin and Lisa still planned to release the debut album,
hopefully with the help of both previous female lead singers.

Then in May 1998, original female lead vocalist Klara Albinsson
decided to reunite with the band - with perfect timing, right before
their debut album "Electric Songs" was planned to be released.

The group's intention is to create beautiful pop songs. They write all
songs together and only perform their own original material.

Aquadays have released a number of demo tapes, and are currently
working on their debut album.

Latest News
May 98: Aquadays' debut album Electric Songs will probably be
be released on Halmstad label Dorian Records. Hopefully in June,
but it may also be as late as August (depending on how fast it can
be pressed and distributed). Border is therefor handling the
distribution, which means you'll be able to pick it up in your favourite
local indie store. More information about current projects (including
songs on several (one already released) compilations throughout
the world) can be found on the official site
Former member Sarah is singing in a new dub/trip-hop band called
sadovaja. Check out their site, where you can listen to a
couple of songs at: http://hem1.passagen.se/phillyg/.
And finally, original female lead vocalist Klara Albinsson
decided to reunite with the band - can you say "perfect timing"? :-)
March 98: Female lead singer Sarah Assbring left the band in
March 1998. Remaining members Martin and Lisa still plan to
release the debut album, hopefully with both previous female
lead singers' help.
February 98: The band is currently recording their debut album
in their home studio in Gothenburg. It is planned to be released
during spring 1998.
May 97: Aquadays played together with The Wellmeant at Tre
Backar in Stockholm May 23rd. That was almost too good to be
true, so we hope you didn't miss it! A night filled with dreamy pop,
male and female vocals together with (some) guitars that made
you scream for more!
March 97: The band has just recorded twelve songs of which eight
appears on their latest demo called "Spring". The songs recorded
are all the songs from their previous demo "Ultramarine" + 'Spacious'
and new songs 'Casablanca', 'Senseless' and 'Daydreamer'. The
