Axling is a newly started solo project run by multi-musician Joakim and who together with other musicians form Axling. From Sweden’s punk / hardcore scene with the band Intohimo, via electro / pop wave as a member of Ember Island since 2013, his musical journey now takes another turn towards new expressions.
With more than 10 years of touring and songwriting experience, Joakim has played in the US, major parts of Europe and Shanghai with his bands. Already in 2006 he received the “best unsigned act” award at the Manifest Gala with Intohimo. In 2015, Ember Island’s version of “Where are ü now” was released in the official remix package of the song with Jack ü (Diplo and Skrillex). In 2016, Ember Island was nominated for this year’s newcomer of the Denniz Pop awards.
It’s about Joakim’s vocals. Honest and plainly-affectionate, his song ‘Stunder Som Vi Bär’ brings together the somber melancholy with a tinge of Brit-rock postings, that utterly caters to your vulnerabilities.
Fab single indeed.
