Brother and sister duo, The Endorphins press the gas on the disco-inspired resurgence with their new beat-driven single – Dead Or Alive.
The Endorphins burst into the music scene with their EP Sublime, a colourful future/retro cross-pollination of R&B and ’90s vibes. The colour remains vibrant and expressive with a brighter, pop-oriented direction on their latest single – Dead or Alive. Maintaining their desire to create feel-good music the catchy song delivers a quality radio production with sublime soulful vocals.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Dead Or Alive‘, The Endorphins explain:
“Written on a Stockholm city beach, on the hottest day of summer, we started reflecting on our life and came up with a track about this society working against individuality and freedom of self-expression.”
The Endorphins are themselves different and according to our records, the Stockholm based band (Alva and August Heldt) are the first sibling duo in the Scandi soul universe.
The world of music has seen successful family duo’s such The Carpenters (Karen and Richard Carpenter) and more recently Billie Eilish (Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell and Finneas O’Connell). While, despite the hits, the UK band Oasis (Liam and Noel Gallagher) also show working with the family can have its difficult moments.
However, listening to The Endorphins we confidently predict no such difficulties. There is a harmony of language which comes across in their music.
“Our music is all about inducing endorphins. It’s about love, friendship, parties and sex. The vibe of our songs is influenced by the good vibes that were floating around NYC in the 70’s – that escape from reality that the disco era was built upon”.
