SOJONew Swedish pop alert!

Meet SOJO. Although you may already know the two siblings from their previous musical ouput. Sofie Larsson was one of the original members of Lucky Twice, and represented Sweden at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2002. Her brother Johan used to be in a popband in Germany, called Se-Side.

Now after working together and realising their potential as a pair, they’re launching as SOJO with the full backing of two hugely respected names in Scandinavian pop music – they’re being produced by Jonas Von Der Burg, and managed by Victoria Ekeberg, the music and management masterminds behind September!

The first single is ‘I Remember’, produced by Jonas Von Der Burg, and written by Jonas alongside Anoo Bhagavan and Niklas Von Der Burg. It’s got the pop melodies and sounds that you’d expect from that trio, but it’s also clear that they’ve taken something of a new direction with SOJO, and incorporated a definite 2011 feel into the music. ‘I Remember’ can definitely draw comparisons with the likes of Inna, Alexandra Stan, and Edward Maya – Scandinavian pop music meets Romanian dance music on a Balearic beach! It sounds like summer 2011. And we’re already looking forward to hearing what else these guys are gonna come out with in the future, especially with that caliber of names involved.

Adding to the news of their arrival, SOJO wanted scandipop readers to have a listen, so they’re allowing us to exclusively stream a clip of ‘I Remember’. So you can hear it for yourselves below.

The track has already had some considerable interest from international record labels apparently, so an international release is imminent. Before that though, it’s released in Sweden later this month, on the new record label, 4 On The Floor.
