Suburban Kids with Biblical Names is a Swedish twee pop band consisting of Johan Hedberg and Peter Gunnarson. The band was formed in December 2003, in Haninge. Their name comes from a lyric in the song "People" by the Silver Jews.[1]


In the beginning of 2004, the band put two songs on the internet and received warm listener response. After this, Sonic magazine interviewed them and included one of their songs on a compilation CD. They were signed to Labrador Records and released their first EP, #1. In 2005, they released their second EP, #2.[2] Their debut album #3 was released in October 2005 in Sweden and has subsequently been released by Minty Fresh in the US[2] and by Yesboyicecream Records in the UK and Ireland. Their song "Rent a Wreck" from #3 is featured in the Prius "Yes" commercial.

On 4 February 2009, the band released their third EP, #4.[1]
