Members, Julimar Santos, Eric Turner and Carl Björsell met collaborating as songwriters for major artists and decided to join forces, and make something really special. The fusion of Turner’s classical and indie vibe with Santo’s blue urban perspective weaved into stories and poetry accompanied by Björsell’s sublime artistry. Realizing quickly that they had found something very rare, they set to work immediately on their first album as a band, setting aside all of their other projects.
Coming from Brazil, Julimar Santos moved to Sweden when he was 5. He grew up in Gothenburg and was raised on rap music. He started out as an MC (J-Son) touring and collaborating with many international and Swedish artists. His style flows effortlessly between smooth and classical singing to urban and rap, with a talent for writing real and meaningful lyrics his stories take on a documentary feel as you peer into his world.
Eric Turner is best known for his #1 hit ”Written In The Stars” with Tinie Tempah. He grew up in Boston listening to his Uncle’s CD’s with classic 60s and 70’s bands like Pink Floyd, and the Beatles. His unique voice cultured from living on both sides of the Atlantic is finally realized fully on this album. He is quoted as saying ”These are my ultimate songs, the real ones I always wanted to make, the realest stuff”. His passionate artist view of music and melody crosses from indie to urban and classic pop creating an epic feel every time his voice appears.
Raised on music in the streets of Stockholm, but living in his own universe, CarlBjörsell picked up the Guitar when he was 10 and started touring as a multi instrumentalist by the age of 16. Inspired by all kinds of music – from the soulful arrangements of the likes of Curtis Mayfield, D’Angelo and Prince to 90’s rap to Electric Light Orchestra to U2 to pure and simple pop songs – Carl has the ability to combine the two distinct worlds of two poets into one smooth and passionate vibe, that grasps the listener with a simplicity of purpose.
Rush is an easy listening single from the boys, releasing on Enter Records they have created a spine-tingling release which the fans can’t get enough of. Combining slick vocals and clean production you just know this one is going to be a massive hit in the music and gaming community.
“For us Rush is mainly about all the liars using social media to make people dumb. How they always Assume people are dumb. How they give you a rush then another rush telling you what you want to hear showing you what you want to see. Proving your opinions that you always had. And how we hope people use critical thinking to fight against it.. But it´s also about always going for it, never holding back, like we feel about the band. It´s all in. We regardless wants the listener to catch their own vibe, not telling them what to feel. If someone thinks or feels the song is about something else, hey that’s cool too!” – Sto Cultr
ALIGN takes us on a journey with his stunning new EP Intertwine, which brings 5 beautifully made releases Embrace, Symmetry, Follow Me, Thought Patterns and Found. The EP kicks off with something magical, Embrace truly represents what everyone should do with this release. It give us goosebumps just listening to it, it combines the sounds of an old film rolling in the background while the harmonic pads come flowing in and to top it off this gentle guitar lead just sits on top and that is the icing on the cake for me.
Symmetry definitely gives a more upbeat feel to the EP, the warm feeling of the piano chords and the essence of the vocal chops just give the track that extra burst of emotion .
Follow me kicks off with this moving chords, which almost remind me of some sort of church organ, but the main power house of this release is the siren (mythical creature) type vocals . Which just catch you and you just can’t seem stop listening.
Thought Pattern is another magical release where you a hit with a soothing arp fluttering throughout the release, accompanied but the vocal shots and the heavily side-chained chords.
Found is bringing back those tropical vibes, with the plucky style chords that just complement the whole release. The vocals bring an extra element into this release which is hands down super addicting to listen too.
Over all the EP is a stunning piece of work and we are 10000% that everyone who listens to this will fall in love with it and enjoy it a much as we did 🙂
“When we finally started to pull out of the winter and darker times, I felt like I had found the direction I needed to go. Overall, ‘Intertwine’ holds its name because the more I think about things, the more I realize they’re all connected, and well, intertwined. This EP generally represents a range of emotions that we go through as humans, and how they’re all connected to each other in one way or another. The tracks on ‘Intertwine’ are not without their flaws, and none are perfect, but neither are we — I look at these minor pieces as things to embrace.” – ALIGN

“Since the vocal drew the inspiration of the track I knew I wanted to steer it in the direction energetic, upbeat, and perfect for an environment of a party. I also wanted the drop to be catchy, simple, and easy to remember with that Xavage touch. The goal is for it to be type of track where at a festival attendees would scream along with the drop going, ‘BOM BOM BOM BOM.’ This one was simply made to have a good time with the squad.” – Xavage

“‘Follow Me’ is a melancholy track that evokes an ever-burning lust and desire. To me, the repetition of the phrase throughout this track allows the listener to feel a deeper sense of thinking of something, or someone, over and over again. The downtempo tune provides for a mellow, more reflective atmosphere while journeying through this track beginning to end.” – ALIGN
