Drawing from influences like Björk and Pink Floyd, new Stockholm-born artist STEELE, combines elements of dark pop, post rock, and trip-hop through each of her productions. Following on from the release of ‘Know Her’, which praised her as HMV’S Next Big Thing, ‘Temporary Love’ – which was released last month – displays the depth of vocals she’s capable of and is a nod the effortless production of Charles Elmi and Dejan Sajinovic.
The cinematic harmonies are intertwined around the vast musical soundscape producing a record that is simply enchanting. Effortless and serene, STEELE firmly plants herself on our hazy summer playlists.
STEELE said, “I started writing ‘Temporary Love’ last summer while on a train from Berlin to Amsterdam. I was struck by the fact that I was in between places, not in my own country and not going home. The feeling also inspired the name of my second EP ‘Hiraeth’. Which means a longing for a home you can’t return to, or one that was never yours. Not necessarily a house, but a homely feeling such as love. Temporary love.”
She is currently working on her first full length album, ‘Paroxysm’, which will be released on June 13th, 2018
