Established in 2008, How Scandinavian is the main musical outlet of American songwriter Bryan Santizo.
Their style ranges from the early days of "Mid-Fi" Indie Rock to Atmospheric Slow-Core and Noise Art Rock, How Scandinavian continues to defy categorization into a single definitive style. Santizo's distinct vocal delivery and songwriting are the only constant in the musical outfit's catalog, every release is essentially different and essentially the same. For live shows, How Scandinavian is usually presented in traditional trio format (currently augmented by bassist Aaron Ware and drummer Ivan Espino) but has regular friends and musicians
bolstering the lineup with horns, percussion or additional guitar. Currently, How Scandinavian is prepping its second full-length album for 2019 and two singles Footpath Republic and Spaniel
have been released so far in advance of it's release.
