”Music straight to the heart!”
-Borås tidning, SWE

”Appealing, melodious flow!”
-Popgeni, SWE

”On his current album Pontén once again succeed in combining the easiness of Pop with influence from Americana and it´s various alignments”
-Musik an sich, NLD

“Just 8 songs and 25 minutes of fluent americana, folk and pop tunes on his debut album, ‘I Think I’m Alone Now’, that is all what is needed to convince us of the potential which harbours in young Swedish singer songwriter Thomas Pontén and his new project Love On Drugs.“
-Rootstime, BEL

”It can be risky to compare with other music but I associate with 70´s Fleetwood Mac and Moneybrother. A brilliant little pop-gem!”
-Uppsalanyheter, SWE

”Simple popmelodies, a streak of singer/songwriter and good, solid songs. Only eight of them and not very long either, well sifted (or really well written from the start) and where Thomas sound equally urgent in Queen size bed as in the summery I wanna stay young with you”
-Ungtro.com, SWE

”Buy it and listen to the entire record, preferably while the summernights are still warm and the lakes lie serene”
-Zero Magazine, SWE

”Very immediate and sing along it has to be said.”
-Lonesome Highway, IRL

”This is quality singer/songwriter music”
-Folkworld, DEU

After some years of intense touring with Gothenburg-based americana-act Little Green, Bandleader, guitarist/mandolinist and songwriter Thomas Pontén embarked on a solo-career under the name Love On Drugs. Heartfelt, intimate and with original songs that sounded a bit different than the more traditional country- and americana that made Little Green so respected. A bold yet tasteful mix of Texas-country and catchy indiepop. Love On Drugs has performed with Ted Russell Kamp (USA), Sarah Macdougall (CAN) and Gordie Tentrees (CAN). Love On Drugs debut-EP was released in march 2015, in december a christmas-single and in the spring of 2016 he released his debut album "I think I´m alone now".
