The Embassy are yet another pop band from Sweden, and the latest to pique my interest. Heavy synth use at times remind me of New Order, while their rhythmic styling is very reminiscent of "Pills 'n Thrills"-era Happy Mondays. It's a wonder that they're from Gothenburg rather than Manchester...
The name seems to be more suitable to a club or concert venue than a band name. My best guess leads me to believe that indie bands are now going through the dictionary, word by word, to use up every possible name of the "The + noun" variety.
