The idea behind The Manor is simple. Striking pop music fused with a unique sound. With this ambition in mind they have spent over a year in the studio in order to complete their debut album Sparks of light will guide us tonight that was released in December of 2006. The Manor experiments with computers as well as traditional effects to create an emotionally provocative sound. The full energy of the five piece band and the ambition towards sonic experimentation has been fully captured in their well-recieved debut. The album has been referred to as "one of the most interesting things to come out of Sweden this year" in swedish music press. The album has gotten incredible reviews from some of the most highly respected publications in Sweden.
