A stellar release we have here. Following up from Sailor & I’s critically acclaimed debut single on Black Butter last year, the pop band 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 typical for a dance music 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, the Âme remix. This is Âme 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.

Sailor & I connects art and pop music, a metaphor for two wills inside a person, which are in a battle with one another. Swedish singer, multi instrumentalists and producer Alexander Sjödin creates the band’s signature soundscapes and introvert pop songs with the use of violins, voices, the bass, analog synths and prominently featured drums who recall Rhye, Fleet Foxes and Woodkid’s musical landscapes.

Sailor & I is synonymous with Alexander Sjödin who makes music of a similar persuasion – curiously compulsive and at the same time beautiful and utterly brutal. Their first offering saw a debut  single  “Tough  Love”  on  one  of  the  UK’s  most  prestigious new  taste ­maker  electronic labelsBlack Butter in summer 2013. Airplay followed on all BBC Stations in the UK and interest in the band significantly rose across Europe.      

Ever since it  first started  falling on people’s ears earlier this year, the Âme 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.

Luca Bacchetti – OVO | EP Comments

Luca Bacchetti's remix of Jon Charnis' 'Lonely Stars In Open Skies' on All Day I Dream was one of the biggest tracks of the year so far, and has been the soundtrack to many beautiful moments on the dance floor.
