Joe & The Anchor Releases New EP “Blue”: Streaming
- Swedish alt-pop band Joe & The Anchor, consisting of Joakim Rosenlund, Robin Zhang, Viktor Edsjö and Ruben Sonesson, released a new EP “Blue” on April 9, 2021.
It is their first project in two years since the debut album “Antidote”. Produced by Anton Engdahl.
The EP comprises of 6-track, including preceding four singles “Wait On Me”, “Get The Vibe”, “Lou Lou” and “So Bad”.
Through the songs the band describes situations and problems they have had to tackle lately, like mental illness, a pandemic, love, lack of self-esteem and loneliness.
Joe & The Anchor said of the EP, “Blue is our way to share our emotions. The EP is one coherent story, presented with different scenarios bound together by the same theme; to have the courage to listen to yourself and let your emotions float to the surface. We want to inspire people to share their emotions, and just like tiny waves come together and create something big; we believe we can change if all of us let down our guards. We hope our experiences and emotions resonate with others, and that our fans can find safety and connection in Blue.”
- Also, the EP is their first project after leaving from Sony Music Entertainment Sweden.
The band shared on social media, “We didn't have a clue what the future had in store for us after we went our separate ways with Sony two years ago, but we knew that we wanted to make more music. We met up with Anton Engdahl to write “Wait On Me”, and just like that we'd defined our new sound. The remainder of 2019 saw us writing more music, playing lots of shows and continuing our growth as a band. But all that momentum and optimism came to a halt when the pandemic hit. 2020 really forced us into introspection. We got to know ourselves on a deeper level, to connect with our emotions in a way we hadn't done before, and we left nothing unsaid. What we learned essentially became the theme for our EP. Every song on 'Blue' is inspired by our real experiences and feelings. “Blue” is Joe & The Anchor being more transparent than ever.”
