“We wrote this song in the month of February last year. It was a gray time in life and an even grayer winter in Stockholm. All we could see around us were hollow-eyed people on the subway walking into each other and stepping on each other’s feet, drowsy from too little sleep and too much darkness. We said ‘let’s just be honest with ourselves that life sucks for the moment.’ Victor sat down by the piano, I was laying on the couch and the words ‘I’m as low as low can be, I just go home and watch TV’ came out. Named after this gray and cold month, we wanted to embody the every day life faced here during this time. Sometimes you want a song to pick you up – but sometimes, at least for us, we just want to rest in our feelings and embrace the low’s for a while, before getting back “into the ring.”
Sometimes you’re strong enough to be your own hero, but sometimes you just want to exist, and simply feel whatever you feel. Hopefully “February” will allow you to simply… feel”
The pair have emerged as two of the most successful new songwriters and producers out of Sweden during the last year or two. With over 20 gold and platinum records to their name for other artists, and over 200 million streams to date, they have been slated as Sweden’s “Of Monsters and Men” equivalent, after releasing upbeat, folky pop singles “Statue” and “Row”.
