Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist STRØM brings us his second single lifted from the forthcoming debut album set to drop in February via This is Scandinavia / Sony Music. The project was created to break away from musical structures, forming kind of a hybrid genre with no rules or fixed directions. According to STRØM himself, the music is influenced by artists such as Daniel Lanois, Jai Paul, D’Angelo and DIIV.
With Last Try, STRØM delivers a pulsing, downtempo electronic track produced with precision and avant-garde sensibility. Melancholic and brooding vocals offer a poignant juxtaposition to lightly floating instrumentation of almost whimsical flare.
The artist’s debut single was born out of sheer coincidence after composing a song for a BMW commercial, which he later finished and released in 2017 as Mesmerize. The song drew acclaim from a slew of music outlets and quickly shot to #1 on Hype Machine.
Growing up in Värmdö, an island off the coast of Stockholm, STRØM began experimenting with musical instruments around age 7 and later formed a string of bands through his teen years. As he grew up, he took a greater interest in production and eventually moved to Berlin for a period to study music production and sound design.
