Social Ambitions was formed 2005 in Stockholm, Sweden. Members Anders Karlsson (vocals, synthesizer and production) and Mikael Arborelius (backing vocals, synthesizers and production) write, record and produce music in their studio in Stockholm.In October 2010, their debut album “Almost Gone” was released. In addition, they have released nine singles and one 5-track EP. The debut album was nominated for Album of the Year at “Manifestgalan” (the Swedish alternative Grammys) 2011.
The duo is influenced by modern electronic pop, classic synth pop, electronic dance music and the drive of rock and new wave. The result is electronic pop music that bears the proud legacy of the Scandinavian sense of melody and danceable electronic rhythms.
The band has played live on numerous occasions in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. Former member Frank Ekelund left the band in 2007.Trivia: the band’s beginnings involved the duo in the SVT series “Lite som du” in the fictional band “Das Sterbhus” along with artist / musician Niels Jensen.
Mikael and Anders have different musical backgrounds but share interests and tastes when it comes to sound from analog synthesizers. Anders has worked as a DJ, arranger for electronic music and indie pop clubs, and was a member of, among others groups, Keyboard Cowboy and ASSID. Mikael has a background in classical music, and was a member of the synth/new romantic band Vienna.
