I Am Karate ’17’ : Charming delicious, always engaging, the new pop.

I Am Karate

Marta Pettersson and Erika Ahlström are the producers and songwriters behind the Swedish pop surge I Am Karate.

After one single musical encounter in 2014 the girls knew they had to start a band, and made their debut in 2015 with an EP called “I Am Karate” with a progressive electronic pop sound similar to Fever Ray and Robyn. Later that year they released two singles, “Elevate” and “Bitter”, were nominated Best Unsigned Act in GAFFA Magazine 2016. They released their first EP with Universal Music, and the single “Swayze” got picked up for The Times Essential Tracks among others.

During the autumn of 2019 they released three singles taken from the album which all showed real promise of a new improved martial musical artistry; with heavy beats, quirky sounds, shiny melodies and two totally united singing voices on top.

Charming delicious, always engaging, the new pop from Marta and Erika sings and dances to the beat of your own heart.
