Sailor I’s first song offering saw the band release their debut single “Tough Love” on one of the UK’s most prestigious
new taste-maker electronic labels BlackButter late summer 2013. Airplay followed on all BBC Stations in the UK as well as the interest in the band
arose significantly across Europe.“Sailor I is a metaphor for two wills inside a person that are fighting against one another. It is part of most
peoples’ everyday lives. It’s interesting because there are times people do things they don't want to do, but they can't stop doing it
for some reason.”
Alexander Sjodin makes music of a similar persuasion – curiously compulsive and at the same time beautiful and strangely brutal. The 30-year-old
producer, instrumentalist and singer from Stockholm has d a glacial track about adult relationships that recalls both Rhye and Fleet Foxes with its
delicate string-led production, soaring vocal harmonies and its bright, frank imagery.
Sailor I are now back with their latest productions for Life and Death. The two original tracks, while very different in moods, both share lush
productions and a dramatic musical storytelling not often found in a typical dance release. While Boys Girls offers a slowed-down mournful and yet
beautiful nostalgic tale of childhood days gone by, Turn Around comes straight out of the gate like a racehorse on fire, flanked by strong strings and
a vocal that pleads a case for love that comes straight from the heart.
And of course rounding out the release is arguably one of the most anticipated tracks of the summer. Ever since it first started falling on people’s
ears earlier this year, the me remix of “Turn Around” has been the high point of sets by Tale of Us, Dixon, Mano Le Tough as well as the few
select others that have had their hands on it up until this point. It’s been giving goosebumps to club goers everywhere and with good reason —
this is me at their finest, taking the song and extending it into an epic masterpiece that works wonders on a dancefloor while never losing the
bewitching essence of the original.
