Johan Angergård is a man of masks, a Swedish man of many masks. In addition to running quintessential indie pop label Labrador Records he’s been part of many iconic Swedish projects such as Acid House Kings and Club 8. But in the end he brings all of these personalities together with his project The Legends. From the Jesus and Mary Chain-esque debut Up Against The Legends to the Joy Division-influenced Public Radio – four albums in has had one of the most diverse discographies in indie pop.
And with his fifth album It’s Love on the horizon, we get a taste of it with his first single in six years titled “Keep Him.” The somber tempo is contrast to some of the more upbeat creations he’s produced in the past. But track is a sign of maturation over the decades of songwriting that he’s done. Stripped down and all about love – it’s the perfect track to lay down on the grass to during this coming summer.
The brooding beautiful new single will be officially released on June 30, 2015 via Cascine Records on The Legends’ album It’s Love. You can preorder it here.
