Pocket Pavilions is the recording project of Daniel Högberg from Gothenburg, Sweden.
His previous band Pacific! formed in Gothenburg, Sweden in the early 2000s when Daniel Hogberg reunited with childhood friend Bjorn Synneby and began collaborating on a set of chic, summery indie pop recordings that nodded to Air, Daft Punk, and the Beach Boys. The duo released three 12″ EPs, Number One, Hot Lips, and Sunset Blvd, on EMI in 2007. Pacific!’s debut full-length, Reveries, came out the following year. Their final album Narcissus was a concept album which was toured with an accompanying ballet.
About Pocket Pavilions:
Daniel: “For me, writing and recording pieces of music is a bit like building miniature worlds one can step inside. I always liked the pavilions of the mid century world fairs. Pavilions, architecture with no function other than to be experienced, seemed like a good analogy. Looking at these pavilions today, they seem like a faded echo of a future that never came to pass, a feeling of wonder and innocence – something I wanted to capture in music.”
