After thirteen years at the heart of Stockholm’s garage scene, Henrik Appel is finally going
it alone. Since moving to the Swedish capital at the age of twenty, he’s established himself
as one of the key figures in the city’s indie rock underground; after starting out playing
bass in the punk outfit Kilroy, he met the similarly prolific Martin Savage and joined his
band, Martin Savage Gang, handling bass and backing vocals as the group toured across
Europe and the United States. Working with Savage inspired Appel to step out front and
centre himself, and in the summer of 2016, his new three-piece Lion’s Den released their
self-titled debut album. Burning Bodies is Appel’s first solo album,
pieced together over the course of five years and consisting primarily of love songs that
pertain both to relationships and friendships. His normally boundless energy has been
dialled back, and the production and instrumentation are lo-fi; he wanted this to be a
slower, more deliberate album than we’re used to from him.
