Biography
The Fermats was formed in a moment of sheer creative rush, on a beautiful summer's day. Our ambition was to make happy, catchy pop-songs with a touch of humour, and to keep the swedish indie-pop scene alive. As time has passed, we have turned the band into something quite more serious than what it was that summer. The Fermats consisted of three members when founded; Leo, Markus and Anna. Later on, we invited Gustav to play bass with us during the live shows. And eventually we decided to use real drums on the recordings (rather than drum-machine), and therefore Håkan joined us. Nowadays, Håkan no longer plays the drums (madman Justus took care of that at our remaining two gigs at the time), and later on Niclas took care of the drumming. Also, Anna decided to call quits a while ago, so until we've found a new female vocalist (you know any?) Markus and Leo sings. The Fermats are:

Leo Nathorst-Böös (guitar, vocals)
Markus Magnuson (guitar, claviature, vocals)
Gustav Ågren (bass, backing vocals)
Niclas Sjöbeck (drums)
