Lissi Dancefloor Disaster is an experimental electro pop indie band from Uppsala, consisting of Josefin Lindh and Johan Tilli.
Lissi Dancefloor Disaster first met as students and realized that they were destined to make some powerful stuff together. They quit the course they were reading and locked themselves in a studio. Fascinated by bands like the Knife, Le Tigre and Chicks on Speed, they started writing electronic pop songs together.
Lissi Dancefloor Disaster is named after Johans cat Lissi.
They have made remixes for Those Dancing Days, Adam Tensta, Armand Mirpour, Emmon, the Mankind and Panda Da Panda.
Lissi Dancefloor Disaster manage their own record label lissilissilissi.
For people out there that have never heard of you. Give us three reasons why
1. We are the perfect mix of the “Le Tigre attitude” and the “the knife darkness”.
2. We make future pop music.
3. Our music is really good and interesting.
How did the band come in to being? And where did the name come from?
Me and Johan met at a course at Uppsala University. We dropped out and started
making music instead.
When we made our first tunes Johan’s cat Lissi was always hanging around. So we
named the band after her: Lissi Dancefloor Disaster.
What are your influences? Not just music…but anything.
Musically we listen a lot to different styles of music. Everything from dark

we listen to the most right now. We are also influenced by everything happening
in the world: The war against governments in Egypt and Libyen, Climate change and
