Slim Loris was in idéa formed in the heads of singer/bassplayer Mattias Cederstam and guitarist Robert Barrefelt in 2009. The duo was soon accompanied by drummer Jonas Ellenberg and singer/guitarist Leon Lindström.

As the leading lights of Scandicana, the Swedish cousin of Americana, Slim Loris have received glowing tributes from the likes of Huffington Post and Axs. After releasing three albums however the band was forced to take a break due to some personal set-backs.

Regrouping in 2017 Slim Loris changed their musical direction by returning to their early influences, from UK 60’s Beat to 90’s Indie. A goal was set to release a new EP every year. The restart was marked by "Wild and Untamed", released on May 2nd 2018. Produced by Pecka Hammarstedt in Olga Studios and with cover art painted by the acclaimed Swedish artist, Emil Grönholm (www.emilgronholm.com/
), with world renowned jazz/funk saxophonist Per Ruskträsk Johansson makes a guest appearance on the song Hideaway. Platinum record awarded director Jonas Hong Soo Eriksson, who had previously directed Slim Loris video "Head on the floor", reunited with the band and recorded a video for the song "Hideaway" that was premiered by Clash music.

It was followed in 2019 by EP "One kind of Bull" that takes a step back in time with a more back to basics approach. Co-produced by Pecka Hammarstedt and with another cover art master piece by Emil Grömholm. Slim Loris followed up the release with performances at the IPO festival in Liverpool, UK and Stockholm.

Music by Slim Loris have been featured in the Swedish films "Var kommer mjölken ifrån" and "Allt vi får från får - en film om får" and also in "Skärgårdsliv – en film om skärgårdsbönder och deras djur”.

In 2020 the band returned to the studio with producer Pecka Hammarstedt to record new EP "When Life Interferes" due to be released on November 13th 2020 with a tour of Sweden and the UK to follow.
