A heady fusion of the orchestral and the industrial, the new single from Sailor & I ‘Rivers’ is available to stream on now on the Shoot New Release Playlist!. An emotive highlight of Sailor & I’s recent live shows and debut album, the single release of ‘Rivers’ includes an epic Paul Woolford remix on 10th May.
Paul Woolford’s uplifting rework, brings Sailor & I’s strings and vocals to the fore, in a remix that’s destined for heavy club rotation next month.
Sailor & I released debut album The Invention Of Loneliness in February this year, on Skint. Motorik pop with a beating heart, The Invention of Loneliness allies early hours clubland with orchestral flourishes and glacial melodic earworms.
It’s singles ‘Black Swan’ and ‘Chameleon’ have garnered radio support from Pete Tong, Lauren Laverne, Huw Stephens, Phill Taggart and 1Xtra.
Swedish singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Alexander Sjödin doesn’t fit most of the archetypes associated with electronic music. Under the moniker Sailor & I he mines a territory that brings to mind the melancholic, ambitious and richly orchestrated songwriting of Sigur Ros or Bon Iver, as much as the deep Balearic techno class of DJ-producers such as Solomun and Dixon.
Having played instruments since he was a child, Sailor & I’s music has been described as deep and dream-like by MixMag where his debut EP release Tough Love received praise in 2012.
And yet it’s all done in such a way that you’re liable to hear his music crop up in the sets of unashamed populists like Pete Tong and Eric Prydz. He is that rare creature, a serious, boundary-pushing producer who has the common touch.
