Molotov Jive is an indie rock group from Karlstad, Värmland, Sweden, formed in late 2003 by vocalist and songwriter Anton Annersand and drummer Johan Hansson. Main influences for the band in the early days were The Beatles, The Smiths and The Who, and with their second album in 2009, titled Songs for the Fallen Apart, a more epic and type of songwriting in the likeness of 1970s Bruce Springsteen, The Killers and The Clash made its presence noted.
Molotov Jive were signed to Swedish indie giant Bonnier Amigo Music after their first show outside their native Karlstad, a "battle of the bands" type show at Nalen in Stockholm. In March 2006 their first single was released, "The Luck You Got" which got a notable amount of airplay on Swedish radio, followed in June by second single "Made In Spain". On 25 October 2006 Molotov Jive released their debut album "When It's All Over I'll Come Back Again", with, among others, you can find "Made In Spain" which they shot the video for in Barcelona, Spain.
The band went on to release two further singles, Weight off my Shoulder, and the free download single "Valentines Day" on 14 February 2007.
