Vanbot Reveals Second Track From Forthcoming Album Perfect Storm
After a trashed album Vanbot is now back with her new album Perfect Storm. The first single Trooper was released in February and has been featured on MTV IGGY, The Guardian, and on rotation on MTV Germany. Vanbot released her selftitled album in 2011, followed by several singles in 2012 and 2013. The music received rave reviews, but after that she remained silent.
“The plan was to release a new album the fall of 2013, but it was canceled at the last minute. The album was almost finalized when I got cold feet, and trashed it. I had a breakdown and started all over again, from scratch. The reboot challenged me to up my game and I started to think outside the box. I played around with new layers of my voice, new beats, effects, synthesizers and I found something new to build on. It was the perfect storm.”
Listen to “Seven”
This new album combines catchy melodies with warped synthezisers, euforic vocals and evocative beats. The songs find tension in these contrasts, giving Vanbot a darker vein in her music. The album is produced/mixed by Johannes Berglund who’s been working with artists like The Knife and Shout Out Louds. The songs are written by Vanbot and cowritten with Jan Kask (Say Lou Lou, Tove Styrke) and Adam Olenius (Shout Out Louds).
The album will be released on May 15 via Lisch Recordings / Sony Music Sweden.
