Vanbot due to release new album “Perfect Storm” 15th May

“Why are Swedish female pop stars always so brilliant?…”  – The Guardian

“Thrilling” – NYLON Magazine

“Massive,  pumped full of space-age electronica & soaring synthesizers…” – MTV Buzzworthy

Stockholm melody master Vanbot has announced her return with upcoming albumPerfect Storm, the electro-pop purist’s follow-up album to her 2011 debut. Riding on the acclaim from the likes of Nylon, The Guardian, Pop Justice, Interview Magazine and MTV, the Johannes Berglund (The Knife, I Break Horses) produced & mixed record sees Vanbot embark on a darker and more evocative spectrum than previous outings.

Shelving a virtually complete album in 2013 after a creative breakdown, Vanbot (real name Ester Ideskog) began anew and vowed to lean away from musical norm in search of a greater bite and growl. Despite the change in direction, Vanbot still thrives on the same DIY spirit and never ending enthusiasm for crafting unstoppable pop. The result is one of the strongest pop albums of the year so far, where every song has great single potential, whilst the complete listen takes one one a unique journey.

Perfect Storm is shadowy and dangerous and will rub soldiers with the likes of Lykke Li’s 2014 release I Never Learn and Robyn’s Body Talk series. Vanbot’s trademark melody perfection from previous releases remains but it has been made slicker and more pliable, now part of the wider conversation and not the sole focus. Driving beats and tense compositions now take precedence, with Vanbot now leaner, edgier and gloriously confident in her freedom to create exactly what she wants with part co-writers Jan Kask and Adam Olenius (Say Lou Lou, Tove Styrke, Shout Out Louds).

Perfect Storm will be released 15th May via Lisch Recordings and Sony Music Sweden, with Vanbot appearing in a number of European performances including London’s Hoxton Bar & Grill on 8th May.
