The Wilson Hospital

Kathrine Bergstrom and Marten Tromm are The Wilson Hospital

I can't really reveal too much information biographical-wise about The Wilson Hospital as their biography and most all other text on their website is in, I believe, Swedish. I can however tell you that their album Medication For A Lost Generation is really wonderful. They make sunny indie-pop, that's heavily influenced by that classic 60's pop sound that Brian Wilson and Beach Boys had perfected.

As on most of their songs, Kathrine's vocals are the real treat here. It feels like they may have a slight bit of reverb on them, but mostly she's just got an incredibly beautiful voice. Lyrically the song treads the typical indie-pop "come back, I love you" territory with Kathrine missing a love and begging for a call. The thing is, no matter how overused, this formula will always and forever work because there will always be people that can relate to it.

Their website appears to have not been updated in some time, so it's possible that The Wilson Hospital is now defunct, but I really hope not. Anyway, you can pick up Medication For A Lost Generation at CD Baby, so you should definitely go do that if you like these songs. Have a nice day, xoxoxo.
