Based in Malmö, twin sisters Inez and Ella Johansson deal in sparkling indie-rock that’s pretty without being soft, sweet without losing its edge and catchy without being cheap. With Inez on guitar and vocals and Ella on keys, organ and Mellotron, their minimal set-up makes a virtue of simplicity – with a sliver of guitar fuzz, and organ lines snaking around stark, striking vocals, augmented by shivering harmonies, they don’t need a lot to make music that’s colorful, kaleidoscopic, and effortlessly original. 7ebra will tour the UK in May as support to Arab Strap on the full UK tour.

In a natural continuation thematically from “Bird Hour”, the new single sees the duo not only embracing their melancholy, but celebrating it;

“I see the song being about trying to please everyone but failing, having a lot of things that need to get done, but all you want to do is close yourself off and cry in the corner” explains singer Inez. “But then you think about it and say no, actually, I shouldn’t have to suppress this despair I’m feeling – I wanna cry in an open field. It’s normal to feel these things and you don’t have to hide it, if you don’t want to.”

“When we originally had the idea for the song, it was sort of a lighthearted joke actually” continues Ella. “But it quite quickly resonated with us, and we realized that this could maybe turn into a proper song. We recorded it with Jens Lingård at Gula Studion here in Malmö, and I think his production matches the story and juxtaposition of the song perfectly. On first listen it maybe sounds like a lighthearted festival banger, especially with the big pumping chorus, but then you realize it’s actually quite sad.”
