Portrait of Lambretta lead singer.


Lambretta was originally formed as an all-male band in 1993. Joined by lead singer Linda Sundblad three years later, their debut album, Breakfast, was issued by Universal Music in 1999. Their follow-up, 2001’s eponymous Lambretta, was the group’s first album to be released on the Universal-owned Polar Music label. 

The album spawned the metal-flavoured single Bimbo, which hit the charts in several European countries, reaching the Top Five in Sweden and Norway. It was followed by Creep, giving the band further chart success. Both these songs were written by international star writer-producer Max Martin in collaboration with Per Aldeheim and Alexander Kronlund. The Lambretta album also went Top 20 across Europe. In 2004 the group released The Fight, which turned out to be their final album. Lambretta disbanded the following year.
