Smile - Kylie / Different Kind Of Fo
Cat. no: CL002
Release Date: 7th May 2021
Smile is the pet project of Bjorn Yttling & Joakim hlund. Bjorn, who is a member of famed international jet-set trio Peter, Bjorn and John, and also an extremely well merited writer and producer for a slew of other superstars such as Lykke Li, Primal Scream, Chrissie Hynde, Haim etc to name but a few.
Joakim, or Jocke as they call him back in their native Sweden, is more the freeloader here, riding on the coat-tails of his more successful colleague, but he has also been the driving force behind a couple of musical projects such as Teddybears and Caesars. He has dabbled in songwriting and producing also, working with Giorgio Moroder, Robyn, Charli XcX etc. Together the two form Smile, a duo, but that also sometimes contains several of their talented musician friends.
“It started out as a studio-project” says Bjorn. “Me and Jocke had been wanting to do something together for a long time, so we just booked some studio time and invited som friends to have a jam session”. This jam session resulted in the first album, A Flash In The Night, which basically passed completely unnoticed by anyone except a couple of extremely dedicated connoisseurs of fine Swedish Indie-weirdness.
This led the duo to quickly book more studio time to follow up the success and catch the wave of momentum and hype, and so now, a mere 8 years later, they are ready to unleash their next EP “Kylie”.
