Umeå band Deportees have provided us with comforting, grand and brilliant pop rock for over 10 years – mixing stunning melodies with lyrics that are both deeply personal and a bit political, the band always convey a sense of urgency. With their breakthrough album Islands & Shores they were awarded a Swedish Grammis for Rock of the year as well as a P3 Guld award for Group of the year. Since, Deportees have continued to cement their position as one of Sweden’s finest musical acts with sold out shows and headline slots at big festivals. This year, the band will release more music than ever before beginning with an EP and later an album. The first tastes sound magnificent – expect the unexpected when Deportees takes the stage at Stay Out West.
