Industrial Skyline's music is primitive. Primitive as in steam
engines, Spinning Jenny, it's been this way since the Industrial
Revolution, and before that there was the Call of the Wild. Ever since
the Dawn of Man we've wanted to Control Nature.

But these days, people seem to be thinking that Society is a Natural
Right. While you're lying in your bed, fast asleep, and it's night and
you're well fed, fully insured, there is a Creature out there,
waiting, at the edge of town.

Kåre Vernby, Richard Öhrvall and Olle Cornéer met one alcohol soaked
evening in Shanghai. Back home, in Sweden, they formed Industrial
Skyline. They recorded their first practice session, and from this
recording the American label Kill Rock Stars picked the song
"Industrial Skyline" and featured it on their compilation "Fields and
Streams". The band continued to record a few songs, but never released
them.

Everything went silent. Life went on. Until the summer of 2009 when
Mattias Alkberg (The Bear Quartet) chose to include
one of the band's
unreleased tracks on his list over the best songs from the decade.
Industrial Skyline decided to release the recordings. The result
is the Shanghai EP (2010).
