When Heavy Feather’s first album “Débris & Rubble” (2019) was released, it became praised by both press and audience; taking the band out to tour Europe. Now it ́s time for their second album, “Mountain of sugar”; an even rawer, heavier, and harder release than the previous one, still with the root rock and psychedelic touch at the very core.
“Mountain of Sugar” consists of 11 roots-rock tracks oozing with a 70’s sound and feel, filled with attitude and raw vocals from blues singer Lisa Lystam. Catchy hooks and roaring guitar riffs are based on influences from the greats of the 60s and 70s, drawing inspiration from bands such as Free, Cream, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band then adds their own unique touch to the tracks, creating a unique and intricate sound that few can deny.
2020 started off with the band going into the No Regrets Fonogram Studio in Stockholm to record an album filled with soul and creativity. Still with musical roots in the ’60s, the result was a rock album with a modern twist that undoubtedly fills a void on the rock scene today. Just like their first album, this one was also recorded together with the producer Erik “Errka” Petersson. With some help from Pink Floyd’s former mixer table, he gave the songs completely new dimensions. In addition, the band had the honour to work with Magnus Lindberg, who has previously mastered bands such as Lucifer and Imperial State Electric.
Heavy Feather’s single “Love Will Come Easy” is out now on all digital platforms. Their album “Mountain of Sugar” will be released by The Sign Records on April 9, 2021 on vinyl, CD and digital format.
|Swedish roots rock band Heavy Feather bring a retro feel with blues influences to the rock scene. Their first album, Débris & Rubble, was released in 2019 and they’re already back with the upcoming release “Mountain of Sugar”, out everywhere in spring 2021.|

There is no lack of new upcoming bands doing the retro rock type of music today, but what many of them forget is to bring their own updated spirit into it. Heavy Feather is the band that can create the perfect mix of old and new and still produce something innovative and different with their music.
Matte, Lisa, Ola & Morgan all started with the same love for the British group Free and the goal to create their own version of it; mixing that bluesy rock with high volume, improvisations and busy drums and basses. They did their first jam together in 2017 and after that there was no return. Heavy Feather are based in Stockholm and all four members come from a background of touring together with band such as Siena Root, Stace Collins and Diamond dogs. Singer Lisa Lystam has previously made her name well-known within the Swedish blues- and roots-scene, gaining recognition with her Lisa Lystam Family Band. Forget those lyrics about Satan and darkness – Heavy Feather put their own experiences into their songwriting and keep it organic and true, just like the 60´s super groups did.
The band picks their influences from the greats of the 60’s and 70’s (Free, Cream and Lynyrd Skynyrd) whilst, with this as their solid ground, also managing to create their very own style. Their debut album was released in April 2019 and was followed by tours throughout Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Spain. The band’s second album, Mountain of sugar, will be released in early 2021; heavier than ever.
Heavy Feather gives you that late 60s and early 70s rock vibe that will bring you back in time, yet still give you hope about the future in rock.
