Hästpojken is a Swedish pop group from Gothenburg. The origin of the name Hästpojken (literally horseboy in Swedish) remains a mystery.
The band was founded in 2007 and originally consisted of Martin Elisson, vocalist from Bad Cash Quartet, Adam Bolméus, guitarist also from the same band and Lars Malmros (Pop-Lars) drummer from Broder Daniel. This line-up released the band's debut album Caligula in 2008. Elisson and Bolmeus would write most of materials. 2010 saw the follow-up album Från där jag ropar after which Lars Malmros left the band. The band would see many changes in the line-up. The band's third album is En magisk tanke released in 2013. In 2014, Hästpojken played with Göteborgs symfoniker. The band is preparing a new album for release in 2015.
In 2014, Hästpojken was nominated as "best group" during P3 Guld awards.
