Epic, infectious and full of attitude, Stockholm based artist The Legends (Johan Angergård) shares his new single, ’In Love With Myself’ featuring the guest vocals of Elin Berlin (Eternal Death). The track is the highly anticipated follow up to previous single, ’Cash’ charting at number 6 on the Hype Machine popular chart, taken from The Legends new album ’Nightshifts’ released through Labrador Records on 21st April.
Like past The Legends’ albums - 2009’s noise-pop debut LP Over And Over and 2015’s fragile and romantic It’s Love ft. “Keep Him”, Nightshift represents a change in direction. The album sees Angergård taking full ownership of his solo project, bringing The Legends on to his own Labrador Records (home to The Radio Dept., Pallers, Club 8, Acid House Kings + more). “I’m more self-confident today and figured I might as well go all DIY again. As much as I love other people, there’s just no opinion I value higher than my own right now.”
“Cash” follows a steady burn of single releases throughout 2016 including two new self-released tracks “Cocaine” ft. Maria Usbeck and “Summer In The City (Living Is For Somebody Else)”, and the Chainsmokers cover “Roses”. The new tracks appear on the forthcoming Nightshift. On this third LP the artist embraces his inner tech geek with a heavy dose of vocoders and analogue synthesizers. The new 16-track collection was inspired by the funkiest electronic music he could find: “I love Futurism. I love the dynamism of modern technology. I love the endless possibilities... ‘Nightshift’ might be a night album, but it’s lit up by neon.”
