Tribeca is the band of Lasse Lindh and Claes Björklund. The band was formed with one purpose in mind: To make music we loved but never heard anywhere. In other words: Tribeca was spawned by rage. Sick and tired of bands doing it all wrong the only way out was to do it themselves. Sounds pretentious? Well, why not..

The Tribeca saga started a chill winter evening at a cafe in Stockholm, Sweden when singer/songwriter Lasse Lindh, invited his favorite producer, Claes Björklund {who produced Lasse Lindh’s »You wake up at sea tac«}, over for a cup of coffee. The two held the same musical ideas and ideals and that marked the start for Tribeca.

Shortly after Tribeca headed for the country for four months where they recorded what turned out to be »Kate -97«, their debut album. A long time for recording an album you might say, but Claes isn’t exactly the sloppy kind of producer. Tribeca recorded and mixed for about four months. And you can really hear that on the album, it’s a lot of very great sounds that’s isn’t made in an instance..

Tribeca »Kate -97« was released in August 2002 on Labrador Records, Mushroom Pillow {Spain} and Philter {Japan}.

Late summer 2002 Lasse Lindh entered the studio with producer Claes Björklund again. This time to record a new Lasse Lindh album. The idea was to record most stuff live in the studio and end up an album based on live takes with a rough, guitar based sound.

Autumn 2003: Lasse Lindh shows up at the Labrador office with the finished material: An all together electronic pop album by Tribeca. “Dragon Down” contains twelve highly a ddictive pop songs in crystal clear production with analogue synthezisers, groovy old school beats, and singer Lasse’s smooth vocals up in the front. A truly wonderful album indeed!
