Out now on the German label Reptile Music is the brand new EP by the Swedish darkwave project Sjöblom. The title track is a cover version of the Alphaville classic which was the opener of their hit album “Forever Young“ in 1984. In addition to the second fresh track “Seconds“ the EP comes up with brand new remixes by Vive La Fête, Ash Code and Luc Stargazer.

Sjöblom is the solo project of Johan Sjöblom, and formed in 2016 in Stockholm. Johan is also the singer in the Swedish post-punk band The Exploding Boy, and played earlier in the indie pop band Prune and the indie rock band Fake Moss.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
