Sahara Hotnights are an all-female rock band from Robertsfors, Sweden. Their style incorporates elements of garage rock, power pop and punk.
The band formed sometime around 1991/1992, due to "boredom". Their debut EP, Suits Anyone Fine, was released in 1997 to immediate success and critical acclaim in Europe. Soon afterwards, the band signed with the Swedish label Speech Records, and over the next two years released three further singles, "Face Wet", "Oh Darling", and "Nothing Yet". In 1999 Sahara Hotnights released their debut full-length studio album C'mon, Let's Pretend, which earned two Swedish Grammy nominations.
The Drive Dead Slow EP appeared in April 2000, released on the BMG label, before the band's second album Jennie Bomb (named for Jennie Asplund) was released in 2001 (2002 in American). The timing of its release coincided with a surge in interest in Swedish rock'n'roll bands, such as The Hives, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Mando Diao and Hellacopters. The songs "Alright, Alright" and "On Top Of Your World" were released as singles.
