Ahead of the release of their debut duo album I get along without you very well on September 23rd, Ellen & Johan’s have shared the album's beautiful and haunting second single "Never Near".
Listen to "Never Near" now
Graden elaborates on the making of the track: "Never near was the last song to be composed for the album and the writing process differed quite significantly from how we worked with the rest of the songs. I remember it being a very intuitive process, basically us trying to follow the momentum of the chord progression’s “elastic” quality which together with this kind of eerie melody line it seemed to follow its own particular logic. We asked the other musicians to “mimic” the melody in real time while recording without them having heard the song in advance, something that both enhanced the tension between the musical elements while simultaneously weaving them together. I think this song offers a contrasting layer to the record as a whole, perhaps an alternative point of entry to the music."
I get along without you very well is available to preorder now on limited-edition light-blue vinyl, get a closer look at the gorgeous artwork for the record with unboxing video here.
