Few months ago fresh pop-project Lovestoned presented itself to a wide audience of Melodifestivalen with single "Thursdays" written by Thomas G:Son and Peter Boström. It wasn't their debut on a big stage though. Band (consisting of 2 former Idol contestants - Pär Stenhammar & Colombia-born Robert Kragh, Bulgarian girl living in Germany Elena Boyadjyeva and Swedish singer Emilie Fjällström) has started with their debut single "Rising Girl" in 2009 and tried to promote it in Germany (visiting Berlin this March I was very plesantly surprised finding this single in one of trade centers on a front shelf next to Agnes' "Release Me") preparing the ground for their debut album "Rising Love". Seems like Melodifestivalen and "Thursdays" (#21 of Swedish chart) didn't help them in Sweden a lot as album is currently totally ignored in charts and it's a real shame as this is very nice pop-work with a bunch of catchy tunes, summer vibes and loud names in album credits (Oscar Görres, Danny Saucedo, Remee, Thomas Troelsen, Niclas Kings, Stephen Simmonds, Daniel Lindström, Thomas G:son, Peter Boström), in common it rolls around band's Ace Of Base-raggae style that you could catch on their singles so those who like "Rising Girl" and "Thurdays" extremely need to get this album right now, it won't let you down. Now band releases second single in Germany and it's "I Know Nothing" (written by first Swedish Idol winner Daniel Lindström, popular singer Stephen Simmonds and Fredrik Larsson), hope it will help band to finally break through there along with German promo-tour and come back to Sweden for further hard-working on bringing up their career in home country.
