Johan Reinhold seems to get more buzz every time something gets released, which is pretty great. ‘Ghost’ was produced by one of the hottest Swedish bands right now, NONONO. This is sultry Scandinavian eletropop at it’s finest. The single’s out now.
If you have to watch just one music video this week, make it this one. I am a huge fan of Johan Reinhold, and this debut video shows off one of the most stunning tracks to come out of 2012. Epic is not a word strong enough to describe this. Filmed at location in an abandoned boiler room to the infamous Swedish mental institution “S:t Jörgen Hospital” that was closed down almost 20 years ago.
Johan Reinhold is back with the release of his debut-EP “Tears From The Start” consisting of 4 brand new songs with his signature gloomy-pop-sound. The single with the same name is currently making its way to the Swedish charts and is on heavy rotation on Sweden’s biggest National Radio station, “P3”. The EP is out now- check it out here.
Johan Reinhold is by far one of the big new stand-out artists emerging from Scandinavia this year. And I personally am a huge fan. So when you get an email detailing the release of his next free track, you’d be right to guess that I got a bit excited.
The track is, hands-down, one of the top five songs to come out of 2012 so far in my view. It’s a roller coaster of subdued, heartbroken riffs steadily destroyed by an epic chorus that lifts you to another level. You must download this, listen and get moved to it, and share it with your loved ones.
This isn’t even a proper single from Johan Reinhold. He calls it a ‘taster of what’s to come’. Exciting times ahead.
One of my favourite exports from Sweden this year, Johan Reinhold, has released an exclusive remix of his viral hit ‘Shoot Me Down’ courtesy of UK producer Owsey. Looking forward to Johan’s ‘Rework’ EP out January 20th 2012! Listen to the original version of ‘Shoot Me Down’ here.
I actually really like this- it sounds very different to a lot of the music I get sent, which makes it refreshing and new. And on top of that, it’s a very slick production. That’s because Johan Reinhold is a Swedish Grammy nominated indie electro-pop singer/songwriter who has just released this song, “Shoot Me Down” which was created by some of Sweden’s most prominent producers and engineers like Astma & Rocwell and the Lasse Mortén (who produced Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn & John, and Primal Scream).
