The Concretes have quite a tumultuous history for a buoyant Swedish pop group. After losing their lead singer (who went on to form Taken By Trees) and most of their gear in the midst of a U.S. tour in support of their second record, the band took some much-needed time to regroup and refocus. After an unsteady third album revealed them to be still searching for their sound, the Concretes are back with an upbeat new record, WYWH, that finds vocalist Lisa Milberg growing more assured and the band exploring bolder sonic territories. There are still melodies galore, but mixed in with a moodier, disco-influenced sound that is sure to get the band's longtime fans moving. 18+. (Photo by by Olle Kirchmeier)
