One of their songs from their album The Concretes, Say Something New, has been featured on TV advertisements in the United States for Target.
Another of their songs "Chico", has been remixed by Australian electronic artists The Avalanches.
Maria Eriksson is also half the band Heikki, with guitarist Jari Haapalainen. They released their self-titled debut, a mini-cd, in Scandinavia in 2002. The follow-up, Heikki 2, appeared in 2004.
