Scandinavia announce 'HMV is Dead!' for World Record Store Day 2013

London band Scandinavia will release new single 'HMV is Dead!' on 20 April 2013 in celebration of World Record Store Day. 'HMV is Dead!' will be available as a free download from Scandinavia's bandcamp page (

The genesis of the song came with the news that HMV was entering administration in early 2013. Like all big businesses, HMV was both a blessing and a curse - convenient and accessible, but community-less and purely commercial.

We wanted to capture our feelings of ambiguity about its expected demise, while revelling in the nostalgia of being a teenage record buyer with a big list of records we wanted to buy but limited funds with which to do so.

'HMV is Dead!' can be found for download in the following places:

Scandinavia were formed in 2008 over a shared love of Hall & Oates, Britpop and Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine. Over the past few years they've released two full-length albums, 'Good Living' and 'The Gods', and are somewhat busy working on a third, expected later in 2013.
