He has been hiding in his new studio at Södermalm in Stockholm the last six months wrestling the demons of perfectionism and now he’s finally out with his new EP ‘Every ending story EP’. Tobias Isaksson aka Azure Blue has really found his own niche which sets him apart from the rest of the dream-electro pop out there. We get the feeling that his music is lighter, brighter and fresher. ‘Every ending story EP’ has five tracks, all filled with a dreamy sound made from guitars, synths and his own dreamy voice. This will make you dream away to another time, place and dimensions.
You should keep your eyes and ears open because the 13th of May Azure Blue will release his album ‘Beneath The Hill I Smell The Sea’. But until then you should listen to his EP on our AOTW Spotify Playlist to get the ‘what to expect’ vibe. You can also step by our nordic_by_nature instagram to see how Azure Blue will spend this sunny day (at least it is in Berlin). As usual we have been asking Azure Blue our five steamy questions, and here are his five steamy answers.
1. Explain the evolution of Azure Blue in 5 words?
Novels, ocean, city, beach, space.
2. What song would you love to have written?
The-Dream – Slow It Down is such an uplifting song!
3. Is there a typical Scandinavian sound?
Sure, I think our long winters and special mentality make us stand out as deep and moody to outsiders.
4. What is the most difficult part of bing a musician for you?
Making a living. Most musicians struggle with multiple jobs. That makes it hard to focus on making great songs.
5. What question would you like to ask next week’s Artist of the Week?
What is your spirit animal?
