Album Review: Entwined – Elias

From the moment you hit the play button on ELIAS‘ debut album ‘Entwined’, you’ll get immediately drawn to the Swedish singer’s robustly soulful vocals with the prominently airy and almost electronic soundscapes serving as a perfect backdrop.

The collection was further enhanced, with the backing of soulful gospel choirs, through, ‘Hope’ which provides an almost three-dimensional feel to the song. ‘Tearing Down the Walls’ briefly interrupts the soothing tone of the album and offers up a late eighties/early nineties-inspired  techno/electronica combo which is slightly reminiscent of Naughty Boy’s hit ‘Runnin (Lose It All)’.

A stunning piano-led piece concludes the album with ‘The Entwined’, showcasing compelling harmonies that weaves elegantly through the keys and – if you’re not made of stone – touches your soul and melts the heart.

ELIAS’ first offering puts him in very good standing as the one-to-watch in the alternative pop music scene – not just in his native Sweden – but across the globe.

Look forward to his future stuff…have a listen to his body of work below:

Song of the Day: Looking For You – Steele

STEELE ‘s latest dark pop number ‘Looking For You’, seamlessly fuses elements of post-rock and trip-hop with electro pop. Likened to Imogen Heap and Bjork but with her own recognisable stamp, the Swedish alt-songbird is raising eyebrows around the globe.

She was featured in Rolling Stone – three times – and also appeared at Elle’s 2017 fashion show, which put her at the brink of something huge but tragedy struck when she was struck down with meningitis, leaving her with epilepsy and a complete lifestyle change. This has merely forged her resolve further to succeed within the music industry and to date, STEELE‘s songs have collectively reached over five million plays on streaming services.

‘Looking For You’ is the follow-up to her stunning ballad ‘Temporary Love’, both of which appear on her soon to be released debut album ‘Paroxysm’ on 13th.

New Music Video: Liar – Andreas Wijk

Swedish singer/songwriter ANDREAS WIJK unveiled his debut video – with such poise and style, I must say – for single, ‘Liar’,

Boasting an elegant fusion of R&B and electro pop, the three-minute production sees Andreas – also a model for YSL and Tommy Hilfiger – expresses his agony over a lost love, through his rich pop/soulful false falsetto.

Music has always been Andreas’ passion and at the age of 15, he put up his first cover on YouTube – but his experience in the industry hasn’t been so straightforward. After a consistency releasing videos, which caught the eye of a major label in Los Angeles, he found himself trapped in a dispute label deal for years. “I wrote music all the time, but couldn’t release anything.” Andreas said of the experience.

Instead, he created a name in media by working on huge campaigns for brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce & Gabanna and YSL. Today, Andreas returned to the music by releasing his project 100% independent.

So here your chance to check out Andreas’ latest offering…enjoy!

The video was directed by Andreas Wijk and Joel Hordegard.

New Track: Stuck In My Feelings – Andreas Moss

Swedish-born, Nashville-based nu-R&B, singer-songwriter ANDREAS MOSS  unveiled his new single, ‘Stuck in My Feelings’, last Friday via Curb/Warner.

Following highly praised singles, ‘Thinking About You’ and ‘Stop Me’, actively gaining upwards of 2.8 million Spotify streams following their debut on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist, the new cut – Written and co-produced by Moss himself with fellow collaborators Sam Tinnesz and Joe Williams – has been mixed by Grammy Award-winner Serban Ghenea, also responsible for the mixes of The Weeknd ‘Starboy’ and Ariana Grande ‘Dangerous Woman’.

ANDREAS MOSS‘ powerhouse vocals draw comparison to fellow songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man, while his music is influenced by the same blend of nu-R&B and neon-bright arrangements that made ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’ and ‘Starboy’ so successful.

Growing up in a musical household, Moss followed in his parents’ steps and became a travelling musician. By age nine, Moss was on tour, singing gospel and playing the piano. Before he reached his teens, he was already part of a multi-disciplinary artists’ collective, where he switched between mediums; from ghost-writing to directing music videos and short films. It’s no wonder Curb Records appointed him to lead their newly created pop division, where the gifted songwriter has control over co-writing and vocal producing of the label’s new pop signings.

Following his performance at this year’s SXSW and The Great Escape festival, ‘Stuck In My Feelings’ is tipped to be ANDREAS MOSS’ most enticing offering yet which may well cement his status in the international music scene.
