Sweden's INVSN Bringing Post Punk Dystopian Pop To Larimer Lounge This Monday (09/18)

By: Norman Hittle

Hailing from the more isolated parts of northern Sweden, INVSN (Invasionen) will take the stage at Larimer Lounge this Monday, September 18th for one of their tour stops in a show curated by Brooklyn Vegan. This five-piece dabbles in post-punk/dystopian pop with a backing of alt rock. Check out the video for their single “This Constant War”:

Regarding the name INVSN (Invasionen, which roughly translates to “the invasion”), the band has said: “We did a couple of records in our native tongue under the name of Invasionen but when we decided to take this globally we felt that a change in language and a new name would be in place.”



INVSN's sound definitely has a post rock/punk vibe with a great deal of raw instrumentation and some more refined pop feels to give it a very gritty, yet well produced appeal very reminiscent of Love and Rockets with hints of Broken Social Scene and Joy Division.

Take a gander at INVSN's full album:
