Through an audition with over 500 contestants, five girls got picked to form Love Generation. The making of their first self-titled single started the same day as the auditions were finished.[2]


Love Generation participated with "Dance Alone" in Melodifestivalen 2011, which selects the Swedish entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest. They placed 3rd in the 4th Semi final, therefore advancing to Andra Chansen. In Andra Chansen they won Duel 1 but lost Duel 2 to Sara Varga, missing out on a place in the final.[3]


In 2012, they again participated in Melodifestivalen with the song "Just A Little Bit" in the 3rd Semi Final, however they only placed 6th in the Semi Final therefore they was eliminated from the competition.[4]

On August 1, they announced on their official Facebook page, that they will change their name to Stockholm Syndrome.

2013 – presentEdit


Roshana Hosseini left the group soon after the Love Generation music video and is a part of Swedish Idol 2011.

Martina "Charly Q" Braun Wolgast is a Gothenburg girl and is a mix of Swedish, Austrian, African, and American descent. She has music in her genes. Her grandfather was a jazz musician and played with legends like Louis Armstrong. Martina "Charly Q" Braun Wolgast has lived in both Nice and Vienna, and released in both German and English-speaking class. It has given her the ability to adapt to new environments. She sings, sews and paints with the same desire and is interested in all aspects of artistry, from the aesthetic and the social to the business.

Mikaela Urbom is a sporty girl from southern Stockholm who played both football, running, tennis and has done dance (from ballet to street / hip hop). Above all, she has a solid background in figure skating. Her brother, Alexander Urbom is a promising NHL ice hockey player. In 2011 Mikaela left the group, leaving them to continue as a trio.

Even Melanie grew up in a sports family – her mother played handball at an elite level, and father Jeff, an American, played in the NBA. Melanie chose music and besides singing, she has taken piano lessons and joined a Music School. She has participated in productions of musicals and is also a talented songwriter.

Cornelia Jakobsdotter Samuelsson is from Stockholm and grew up in a creative and somewhat Bohemian family because her parents worked in theater and music (her grandmother founded the People's Opera with her then-husband). All this has made her open to new environments and unexpected encounters. Cornelia has gone to Kulturamas Music Dramatic elementary school and studied singing at Rytmus Musicians Gymnasium. Her father is Jakob Samuelsson of The Poodles.
