The Barbarian Horde are a two-piece ukulele / cello outfit, and like many things (cheese, Marmite and peanut butter on toast for example) it shouldn't work but does. The stately glide of the cello provides a solemn canvas for the ukulele to paint its sprightly musical brush strokes, to the amazement of all. The Horde's lyrics reflect this duality, with gloom (overlong Sunday afternoons, unhelpful banking) rubbing shoulders with brighter themes (interesting places to go in Sweden, tips for scouting), often within the same song.
