When he started producing and playing records Cédric was inspired by the contemporary Swedish House Music. The name of the band, as well of their songs, are in Swedish because of Cédrics admiration of the language. According to him, it sounds like it's being sung when it's just being spoken. With this in mind, the name of the band was founded after a search in a Swedish dictionary. Klingande is the present participle of the Swedish verb (att) klinga, which means '(to) chime' or '(to) sound'. The band name thus means 'chiming' or 'sounding'. The duo describes their music as "Melodic House".
