Atomic Swing

Atomic Swing is a Swedish pop rock group formed in 1992. Their debut album, "A Car Crash in the Blue", produced several hits in the Swedish charts. After an intense period the band split up, in 1997. The band reunited in 2006 and their latest album is called "The Broken Habanas".

The Atomic Swing repertoire spans both dynamic and upbeat pop-rock hits and softer ballads, all characterized by Niclas Frisk's special vocal style and inventive bass tracks.
