SJ​Ö​BLOM - Tape (Single)


Tape 03:46
It was in May 2002 I realized there were others too And understood we’re all stuck in between I used to live like I didn’t care Just didn’t feel I was really here Saw what happened through my own TV I’ve got it all on tape so I can’t hide it It’s not a secret life I can’t deny it And every time I fail you’ll understand me I’ve got it all saved so I can’t fight it Alien was my alibi A bit strange but so was I A black hole in the heart and the head in the blue Nowadays I just care too much But I am here you can feel my touch Don’t you worry, I’m alien to you I’ve got it all released so I can’t hide it I do the best I can you can’t deny it And every time I fail you’ll understand me I’ve got it all on tape so I can’t fight it


SJÖBLOM is back! “Tape” is the first pre-single taken from the second album “Demons” by the solo project of Johan Sjöblom Eliot, co-founder and one of the two lead singers of the Swedish post punk band THE EXPLODING BOY.

Recorded in the Stockholm Joniverse Studios with producer Jon Bordon (Nicole Sabouné, Agent Side Grinder), the original version of the song proves once more Johan’s impressive talent for catchy hooks and a harmonious mixture of post punk, wave and indie sounds.

The tracklist is completed by three remarkable remixes from Big City Bright Light VS Principe Valiente, Antipole VS Acid Fader and xotox.
