Have you heard about the Swedish dream pop band, Joe & The Anchor?
After one year of waiting, they are finally back with new vibrating music – So Bad. So Bad is the first song to be released from the band since their debut EP Antidote last year. An uplifting track with electronic trap influences that captures the feeling of holding your head high even when life is challenging, a motto that has formed the band while they’ve stayed together through the ups and downs of life.
“So Bad works as our own motivational song, it makes us remember why we do what we do. Setbacks are something everyone can relate to and the song’s message is about fighting past it. Because in the end, the journey is always worth it,” the band explains.
The quote also reflects how hard the friends Joakim Rosenlund, Robin Zhang, Viktor Edsjö, and Ruben Sonesson work for their success. In addition to their musical expression, they attach great importance to their visual style, making all the material themselves. During their years of being active JATA has been able to explore several different genres, play around Sweden and perform as supporting act for Mando Diao – all of which has formed them into a strong live band with a unique musical style. With their colorful sound, uplifting lyrics, and powerful vocals, Joe & The Anchor invites the listeners into their dreamlike world.
