MAG, aka Magdalena Ågren, is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Using trombone, megaphone, voice, homemade electronics, loops, and drum machine all at once to build her music from scratch. From the smallest simple element, it grows into a gigantic dystopian lo-fi orchestra. Sometimes restrained and suggestive, sometimes chaotic and wild. MAG strives for deep introspection and expressive power, seeking both confrontation and commonality.
MAG has recently released her first solo album, Magnitude, in 2016 on Surplus Recordings and Zeon Light Skiva, and has played more than 100 shows in Europe and North America.
Magdalena Ågren also currently plays in two other band projects, SORK and Trapped in a Loop.

” She opened for us in Malmo and I’m still scraping my jaw from the floor after dragging it all the way back to The Netherlands. Marvellous, hugely inventive…. words aren’t enough”
– Edward Ka-Spel, Legendary Pink Dots
