Martin and Erik Aamot formed the Electric Pop Group in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2005. Formulating a shambly, jangly, supremely laid-back sound that nodded to old-school twee pop groups like the Field Mice and the Orchids, the duo's self-titled debut was released in the winter of 2006. Jimmi Thunholm and Gustaf Murman were brought into the fold soon after in order to round out the group's live sound. The Electric Pop Group were snapped up by Matinee soon after the band's first album emerged, and their debut EP on that label, Sunrise, came out in the spring of 2008.
