When Kenny and the Foodboxes planned their third album, it was not obvious which direction the sound was going.
What started as a joke around 1996 had developed into a more serious project.
The first album "Alright, vi har en ny grupp" still had clear features of how it sounded in the 90s, but in the sequel "Alla som inte är på flykt från något, räck upp en hand", there was a more melodic sound than before , but with less nonsense lyrics. There was a greater depth in the lyrics and the record was less sprawling than the debut album.
The texts have always been in Swedish and it is perhaps not so surprising since Sweden's biggest pop band Kent has been a major influence on Niklas Cederlöf through the years, especially Jocke Bergs gloomy lyrics. On this album, the band developed the legacy of the nineties further and has made the most coherent record so far. Overall it's a darker album, but with a hopeful undertone. On the album you will find influences from a variety of Niklas and Johan's personal favorites such as The Smiths, Kent, brother Danie, Bruce Springsteen. There are also clear electronic influences and the last song Kenny and the Food Boxes International Airport's title is a direct theft or flirt if you like with The Bear Quartet who have done the same thing.
