LP version. "Drivan is a new band consisting of Kim Hiorthoy, Lisa Ostberg, Louise Peterhoff and Kristiina Viilala. Meeting in Stockholm in fall 2007, the band worked on a multi-faceted dance piece by choreographer and performance artist Gunilla Heilborn entitled The Potato Country. The moving yet humorous performance piece incorporated dance, spoken word and songs. Upon completion of its run in Stockholm, Hiorthoy asked Lisa, Louise, and Kristiina if they would be interested in collaborating further. In 2008-2009, the group met at the remote house/studio of Bebbe Risenfors. Most of the songs on Disko began their evolution as one of Hiorthoy's loops during this time, eventually being built upon by the collaborators. Drivan is a group first and foremost, with everyone cooperating on lyrics and melodies, and although there are flourishes of Hiorthoy's signature sound, the recordings' folk-oriented and organic feel has the band drawing more from Swedish folk and prog of the '70s, as well as Stina Nordenstam's People Are Strange album."
