The Rockaphones

I was browsing Amie Street about a week or so ago, something I do from time to time. Well, I happened upon a group called the Rockaphones. I'm a curious sort so, I had a listen. I was intrigued by "I Try." It's country and pop with a jazzy breakdown mid-song. They also have a bit of bluesy R&B'ish groove tossed in for good measure. I know that description sounds a little odd but, it actually works. I also checked out "Molly." There's prominent banjo in the song. They're Swedish? Are they really? Seriously? They have country music in Sweden? I need to get out more.
