Swedish dream pop pioneers Immanu El announce new album Structures. It arrives on 13th September, almost 3 years after their critically acclaimed record Hibernation. Today Immanu El share Ropsten, another compelling song, taken from their forthcoming album.
Structures is the 5th full length album from Stockholm based Immanu El – an eight track journey of contemporary, progressive pop music with its roots in the bands symptomatic sound of Scandinavian ambience. "The album reflects on the twisted nature of postmodern society; about the blind obsession of careerism, individualism, self-fulfillment and economic growth – how we’re all a part of it and what it does to younger generations.“, says Claes Strängberg, lead-singer of Immanu El.
The band started to work with this new album already while touring with their latest album Hibernation in 2017. The music is entirely written, recorded and produced in the band’s own studio in Stockholm, Sweden. With Structures, Immanu El have challenged their way of making music as well as telling stories. The vocals and lyrics drive the songs forward in a sharper and more captivating way, expressing both soul searching and social criticism more distinct lyricwise and in production. The result is the most exciting album ever made by this talented and emotional Swedish pop group.
Immanu El started as a musical experiment in Jönköping, Sweden, in 2004 by Claes Strängberg, soon joined by his twin brother Per and friends David Lillberg and Jonatan Josefsson. The band has gained a reputation as one of the most talented and exciting bands from Scandinavia in their genre, having performed over 300 shows in 30 countries around the globe, mainly at club scenes and festivals, since their debut album in 2007.
