September 16, 2020 Dream pop artist Johan Kull release solo song ‘Dreams’

Dream pop artist Johan Kull release solo song ‘Dreams’

Johan Kull, 31, has been working as a musician and producing music for other artists, as well as being in multiple bands, for ten years. He has studied at the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden.

Dreams, which is the first release from his solo project, came to be while studying at the Royal College of Music.

Johan is inspired by artists such as Bon Iver, Finneas and Phoebe Bridgers, and describes his music as melodious och emotional alternative pop, with in uences from dream pop and shoegaze. His melancholic music is characterized by it’s dreamy soundscapes and layers of vocals.

The atmospheric sound of Dreams tells the tale of dreaming as the more tangible reality.

– The song deals with the false reality that dreams can create. When you build this utopian world in your head, how perfect that can be, and how equally horrifying it can be having that taken away when you wake up. But it’s also about the disappointment of expectations being squandered, when reality isn’t up to par with your dreams.

Johan is planning on releasing more singles later this year and an EP is scheduled for 2021.

Explore the realm of possibilities with pop musician, Ilja Alexander’s latest release

Few people know the struggle of disliking your own creations better than artists. However, it can be an amazing feeling when the dislike begins to change and reform itself into love and favouritism. Ilja Alexander knows this better than most with his last release of ‘Someday’ via Green Monk Records.

“I wrote ‘Someday’ on a piano and it sounded like an indie sound. My good friends and co-producers, Curtis Richardson and Adien Lewis, then decided to take me out of my comfort zone, and on the morning of the studio recordings presented to me the electronic urban pop production of the song. I was totally unconnected to the sounds and so discomforted and vexed by the production that I just couldn’t sing on the production for the first two hours. Luckily, I soon came to like the production. In fact, I now think it is one of my most favoured recorded songs so far.”

Somewhat of an international artist, Ilja Alexander is originally from Amsterdam. However, he has recently formed a band in London and received significant attention from Japan and Indonesia.

Singer/songwriter Ina Wroldsen releases new music video from the song ‘Haloes’

The stunning video for ‘Haloes’ is directed by award-winning Norwegian director Thor Brenne, who dreamily brings Ina’s lyrics of unity, magic, and euphoria to life. The video is comprised of beautiful scenes that juxtapose breath-taking natural landscapes with interpretive dance sequences exploring the enchantment of human connection.

Speaking of the single, which has racked up over a million streams since its September 20th release, Ina says: “I wrote ‘Haloes’ with my favorite co-writer and good friend Steve Mac and we wanted to capture that moment of euphoria you feel when you are in a crowd of people, and everyone is just having a wonderful time, being human together.

With my songwriting, I am constantly trying to capture defining moments of human nature in seemingly ‘everyday situations.’ The first ‘hello’ that leads to a lifelong relationship, the first spark in an innocent touch or that final decision one makes that leads through sorrow and loss, to a completely new and bright path. I truly believe there is magic in everything, if you just take a second and look for it.” 

‘Haloes’ is the follow up to this year’s ‘Forgive Or Forget,’ which Ina will no doubt be performing at her sold-out London headline show at the Camden Assembly on October 24th.

Ina Wroldsen has already built up an admirable collection of some of the biggest singles of the last 10 years, having penned hits for the likes of Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne, Little Mix, Britney Spears, and Calvin Harris.
