Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden and inspired by the 1970’s power pop era and the American garage punk scene from the early 2000’s, Ditches was formed in 2016 . Setting out to create gritty melancholic music in a energetic downstroke driven manner Ditches recorded and self released the first demo ’X-Ray Eyes’ on limited edition of 50 copies cassette tapes in 2017. For the 2018 follow-up 7” Ep ’1000 Elephants”, Ditches contacted Cool Devices Studio, owned and operated by Mark Ryan (The Marked Men, Mind Spiders) and Jeff Burke (The Marked Men, Radioactivity, Lost Balloons) who mixed and mastered the release. In early 2019 Ditches released the 7” single ’The Taste’ through the Spanish label Jarama 45RPM Records. Later in 2019 Ditches travelled to New York to record their debut self titled album together with Jeff Burke who also did the mixing. The mastering was done by Dave Williams (Eight Floors Above Audio Mastering Co., Steve Adamyk Band). The album was released in 2020 on the UK label Drunken Sailor Records.
During the years Ditches has toured Europe, Scandinavia and played with bands such as Neighbourhood Brats, Radioactivity, Radkey, Lost Balloons, Bad Sports, Gestures among others.
