This growing urban-rural divide, along with immigration, means cities are expanding, but it also makes it more difficult for artists to find affordable housing let alone practice space.

This reality is something that Swedish psych rockers Dungen have faced, and along with limited touring opportunities in their home country, singer-composer Gustav Ejstes and his band have looked outside their own borders to find success—including a stop at Pickathon last August.

Watch the conversation between The Future of What's Portia Sabin and Dungen below, and then check back in each month for a new Interview Series episode from Pickathon 2017.
