Kristinehamn, Sweden [ 2006 – present ] Oh Hiroshima is an indie rock / post-rock band formed in Kristinehamn, Sweden by Leif Eliasson and Jakob Nilsson. Leif and Jakob met in high school and quickly formed a friendship. Both of them were playing in different bands at the time, but Leif had been working on a post-rock solo project.

Since Jakob also was a fan of the post-rock genre, they decided to give it a try together, and Oh Hiroshima was formed in 2006. In the summer of 2009 they released their first EP, ‘Empty Places Full of Memories’, and in the spring of 2010 they released their second EP ‘Tomorrow’.

The band consists of:

Leif Eliasson - Guitar, drums and synth. Oskar Nilsson - Bass. Joakim Henriksson - Drums. Jakob Nilsson - Guitar, vocals, piano and synth.
