Loki's Folly is an indie-punk trio comprised of two young sisters and their kid brother from South Minneapolis who like to play loud music that makes them happy. For a three-piece outfit, they make a very big sound that is all their own. When Loki’s Folly play, they bring you into their world. It is a universe where influences like Sleater-Kinney meet the tradition of Swedish Kulning in the best possible way.
Annie (age 21) plays guitar and sings. Nissa (age 16) plays the drum set and sings. Oskar (age 11) plays the bass. Each brings their unique personality to the music, and their sound is gelled by the blend of their sibling voices singing together. The band initially formed out of the girls taking lessons separately at Twin Town Guitars. They began having their lessons together and after a handful of sessions, Loki’s Folly was born! It wasn’t long before people outside of the practice space started taking notice.
Their energetic and passionate live shows have been garnering a devoted fan base from long-time Minnesota musicians. Soul Asylum, Run Westy Run, Haley, The Melismatics, Ryan and Pony, and Porcupine have all put them on local shows over the past two years. Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum) even appears as a guest guitarist on their single, “Appease The Girl.” They were also included in First Avenue’s Best New Bands showcase and have gone on to do a national tour with legendary band Shellac. Loki’s Folly plans to release their debut album, Sisu, in the very near future.
