Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

Linda Karlsberg, lead vocals, Richard Öhrn, guitar and vocals, Marcus Segersvärd, drums and vocals. All three members of In Deed were born in Sweden during the seventies. Growing up in Sweden gives you a lot of cool childhood experience, like going for a ride in the parents car, with no seatbelts on. In fact there were no seat belts in the back of the cars in those days :). –In fact, my parents didn’t have a car…but biking was also cool. (Richard).

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

The band started during the student years in Uppsala, Sweden. Linda came across a guitar, a cheaper model, which she bought via mail order. She quickly realized that it was quite difficult to pick out the chords to other people’s songs, so instead Linda started writing her own. She got about ten songs together and decided to scan interest within Uppsala’s music circles.

 Linda probably had like an ounce of luck that her note in the student library was read and that she got a call from a guy, who later came to play Hammond organ with In Deed for several years.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

In Deed play Power indie pop rock with melodies and attitude. The song “Don’t Need Don’t Care” is from our brand new album “Everest”, released in October 2017. The song was actually written by Richard in his late teens, although the middle eight and complete lyrics was added at a later stage. It’s basically a story about someone bothering you who you don’t feel like being bothered by anymore (an ex…) There isn’t (yet) a music video for this track, but there might be soon.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Perhaps one of the greatest ups would be those moments during the process of arranging or recording songs –the moments when we get a simultaneous kick from what we play and hear ourselves play and sing. The moments we’ve felt sure we’ve been onto something really good. And of course those magical moments onstage in front of an enthusiastic audience.  The downs…would be the struggle around gigs, carrying gear etc.  And also, the frustration of dealing with people who doesn’t realize how great we are, that don’t write about us, broadcast us, call us for interviews…J.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

The track “Don’t Need Don’t Care’ was (together with a couple of more tracks off ‘Everest’) produced by Hans Olsson Brookes, one of Swedens finest! We did the original recording of the song a few years ago, but not until recently the song was polished for a release.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

We have been in the music industry for quite some time. Our first album At 4000 meters was released in 2001. Our new album Everest will take us to the top of the world. That would be some sort of goal, we guess…

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

New strings for the guitar can be inspiring … or having a hangover. Emotional extremes in both directions are often a good breeding ground. It’s hard to control, but we think that with emotional darkness comes creativity, but you also need the positive energy to accomplish something concrete. The hard work.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

A strong melody, good vocals and a great sense for britpop and the sixties! And no jamming! We hate jamming. We’ve never ever jammed and got a song out of it. That is not how you get in touch with your creative demons. You write the song, then play it over and over and talk. A lot of talking together, about how to add those bits and pieces that makes it a well-arranged product. That is also a reason why we all share royalties from all the songs we record as a group. Everybody’s input contributes.

Swedish student collage radio stations and Swedish radio. Radio shows in the UK. Great stuff! For example AT Radio in Manchester and the London based blog Mystery Son.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

A song can come within minutes or years. It’s a bit random, but has a lot to do with your emotional state. Lyrics might be a bit more struggle, sometimes, perhaps because English is only our second language. But still The Language for pop music, if you have ambitions to be successful outside Sweden. When it comes to recording and studio work: hard but fun work, many hours and not much sleep.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

A huge house, somewhere hot and sunny by the ocean with friends and family. We’ll do gigs there and have a studio in the basement. Might be a house in Spain
