The utterly amazing Vanbot is back. Our favourite Scandinavian has a new album forthcoming. Her long awaited sophomore record is due out later this year, but ahead of that check out the awesome Trooper, the new single, a massive, emotional, ElectroPop tune.
Directed by Rikkard Häggbom, the song’s video is a monochrome and moody classy treatment that feels comfortably nostalgic.
Good news everyone! Sweden’s finest Vanbot is back with a brand new single. We’ve been dying to post When My Heart Breaks since it broke ground last week, but until now it’s been a Spotify exclusive. Leaving the argument about making it exclusive on such a platform being damaging to a release campaign aside, we’ve very pleased it’s now available to buy, and to play to you lot. It was worth the wait.
Following on from January’s Hold This Moment, When My Heart Breaks is a huge, infectious slick of Scandinavian ElectroPop brilliance. Powerful and majestic as Ester cries out against a back drop of massive synths and pounding drums. It’s been a while singe Vanbot’s début (and amazing) self-titled album, and you can hear in When My Heart Breaks that she’s been honing her craft making us more excited for her next long player than ever. Pretty flawless ElectroPop. Sweden nails it again.
Here is the brand new video from our girl Vanbot for her forthcoming single Hold This Moment. We’ve been waiting for new Vanbot material for a while now and Hold This Moment doesn’t disappoint. It’s big, chilly, ScandiPop with tons of heart. Beautiful, melodic, SynthPop.
The video is the slickest clip Vanbot had done to date. It’s very Scandinavian, full of stark monochromes and tundra, but has an amazing personality too. This has made out day.
Vanbot’s Hold This Moment is released in February.
Woo-Hoo! Here’s the new single from Swedish ElectroPop queen Vanbot!
Proving once and for all that the awesomeness that was her self-titled début album of last year wasn’t a one off. ‘Got To Get Out’ is a sublime and atmospheric slice of DancePop. Unmistakably Scandinavian and majestic ‘Got To Get Out’ is euphoric ElectroPop with a sense of urgency. In her own words “’Got To Get Out’ is about my hometown Stockholm and how it’s filled with people experiencing a sense of isolation and separation, how it makes you feel lonely in a crowd,” she explains. “It’s fascinating that people can live so close together without really noticing one another. It’s about exploring the city nightlife and the tendencies people have to chase after the experiences that will cause the best story to tell the next day instead of enjoying the happiness of the moment.”.
Well, it’s finally out in the wild, the last seven months of my life have come to fruition as we are amazingly proud to present ‘electronic rumors volume 1’.
I won’t go on about it, it’s possible that i would have a hard time reviewing it objectively, so take a listen to Ride The Universe’s awesome minimix of the compilation featuring all 15 tracks.
It’s almost weird that it’s real now and if you like physical media I would really recommend the CD, it comes in a stunning DigiPak designed by Sebastian Bentler.
