‘Inception‘ is the first solo single from Swedish rock singer Guernica Mancini (lead singer of Thundermother) and is available now via Golden Robot Records.
Having forged a successful career at the helm of Thundermother, with over 300,000 monthly listeners and millions of streams, Guernica has been working on a solo side project that can only be described as a mind blowing fusion of rock and pop.
‘Inception‘ toys with the idea of a rebirth; a place in time where you have to get up, dust yourself and rise from the ashes with no limitations. It’s a song fit for a fighter so it only made sense that fellow Swede Linn Sandstrom premiered the track for Guernica at the WBA Intercontinental Title fight late last month.
Having already won a WBC Australasia and WBA Asia Boxing Championship, Linn selected ‘Inception‘ as the song to make her U.K. main event debut with at York Hall – leading to a unanimous win and a third title belt.
‘Inception‘ is exactly that; the fierce foundation for what is to come for Guernica Mancini.
Guernica Mancini is one of the world’s best female rock singer/songwriters from Sweden. Music has always been a big part of her life, from her childhood days in a church choir to forming her first band at the age of 14.
In 2007, Guernica enrolled at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, CA, where she won a songwriting contest. This led her to record with famed music producer Darryl Swann, who’s worked with acts such as Black-Eyed Peas, John Frusciante and Macy Gray, just to name a few. During her time at the Musicians Institute, she formed the all-female band Inglourious, performing at music venues in LA as well as Las Vegas, including House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, The Key Club and The Roxy.
2010 saw Mancini team up with Jeff Young (former member of Megadeth) as the lead singer for his band Souls On 11.
After 5 years in LA, Guernica moved back to Sweden and formed her own band The Royal Ruckus. The following 4 years the band played throughout Sweden and toured around Europe.
2017 gave Guernica the opportunity to audition for the Swedish all female rock band Thundermother, where she has since become the lead singer.
Mancini has been lead vocalist on the last three Thundermother albums and was a songwriter in the latest ones. They have toured all over the world, played massive Festivals such as Wacken, Sweden Rock Festival, Alcatraz, Exit Festival and Reload Festival. They also featured on The Kiss Cruise, Full Metal Cruise and supported The Dead Daisies, Backyard Babies and Rose Tattoo.
Thundermother is by far one of the hardest working, extensively touring bands in the world and Guernica is the voice of this thunder machine! In 2020 she joined Hank Von Hell on his single ‘Crown’ off his album Dead. In 2021 the band King Zebra, also signed to Golden Robot Records’ metal label Crusader Records, asked Guernica to join them on their song ‘Wall of confusion’.
“Getting to do something creatively that’s completely my own is something that I’ve been longing to do since I was a very young girl. It’s scary but at the same time so exciting and fun! I feel very fortunate to have gotten this opportunity. More than anything I feel so happy that my bandmates in Thundermother are really supportive and excited for me. So now let the Guernica solo legacy begin.” – Guernica Mancini
