As songwriters they have written hits for artists such as Monrose, Garou, Tarja Turunen and Rachel Stevens to name a few. Anders and Mattias met in 1996 when the band Vacuum recorded their first album "The Plutonium Cathedral". They work out of their studio "Home" situated in central Stockholm, Sweden but are constantly on the move to wherever their work takes them.

In 04 Vacuum released the album "Your Whole Life Is Leading Up To This". It was followed by two singles "Six Billion Voices" in 06 and "Walk On The Sun" in 07. Due to high demand as song-writers, Vacuum the band is only active from time to time. The band still enjoys a huge fan-following.

As songwriters they have worked with many artists around the world. In 2007, they've worked with artists such as Tarja Turunen (I Walk Alone, Die Alive etc), Monrose (What You Don't Know), Cinema Bizarre (Heavensent, Get Off), Edyta Gorniak and many more.

History (unofficial version)

The group was formed in 1996 by Alexander Bard and Anders Wollbeck.
The history of the group can be divided into two distinct parts: before the departure of the group's leader Alexander Bard in 1999 and after his departure, since which the singer Mattias Lindblom has become the group's new leader. The first two full albums of 1997 and 1998 were characterized by classical music influences and socially-, politically- and even astronomically-themed lyrics, which are very unusual for synth pop music; the 2004 album "Your Whole Life Is Leading Up to This", written by Wollbeck/Lindblom, steered away from synth pop to trance/techno and personal lyrics dealing with love and the meaning of life.
