In Scene Report, CMJ’s latest column, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week Movits! gives the scoop on Luleå, Sweden.

We’re from a small town called Luleå up north in Sweden, and the music scene is not that big. There are a few good indie/rock bands, the Bear Quartet and the New Man notably. Hip-hop is on the rise with us and Zacke as the main acts. There have also been a few good hardcore acts, with Raised Fist as the biggest.
