Könsförrädare is like the volcano Eyjafjallajökull. Impossible to pronounce but something you cannot miss out on. Coming from a small town in the northernmost part of Scandinavia Könsförrädare spent their youth playing together and came up with their sound – kind and violent with a dreamy twist. Their politically conscious and stylisticially refined lyrics makes it hard to separate pop from politics.
Könsförrädare is also a riddle, even in Swedish. Roughly translated it means ”gender betrayers”, and refers to a recent controversy in Sweden when a famous feminist politician said that women who sleep with men betray their gender. The band picked up the word Könsförrädare giving it a broadened, positive and sophisticated meaning – instead of using it as a demeaning word it is a transformational and creative possibility.¨
Könsförrädare is Janinne Sandström Oja, Måns Lundstedt, Alina Björkén och Robin Bernhardsson.
