We Are The Storm Short Info

We Are The Storm are a swedish Indie band from Uppsala. The new album, "Wastelands" was recorded and produced by Kristofer Jönson in an old cinema in Uppsala where the band completely shut themselves off during the recording session, surrounded by the old synthesizers and organs they have collected over the years. “Wastelands’” mixture of noisy guitars and delicate harmonies sounding over a downplayed drum beat is what makes it one of the most interesting indie albums to be released this year.

We are the Storm released their debut album “To the North-Pole” in 2011. The band’s austere but at the same time grand sound resonated with the Swedish coldness and the record was warmly received by critics. The singles “Galileo” and “Shoreline” received airplay on Swedish national radio channel P3. Following the release, the band toured Sweden from Jokkmokk in the north to Malmö in the south.

Kvalität are proud to announce the upcoming release of We are the Storm’s second full length album, “Wastelands”, which will be out in spring 2013. The album was recorded and produced by Kristofer Jönson (Jeniferever, I Break Horses) in an old cinema in Uppsala where the band completely shut themselves off during the recording session, surrounded by the old synthesizers and organs they have collected over the years.

Compared with the debut album, “Wastelands” contains brighter glimpses of light and darker shades of black – it expresses a spectrum of feelings where forlorn coldness is contrasted with warmth and closeness. While not a concept album, the title still sets the theme: the songs conjure pictures of a deserted land where some things survive while others die. But from the ashes of the wasteland, something new can rise.
