IMMANU EL is a young Swedish band with a unique sound - dynamic guitar and keyboard soundscapes, captive singing and with somewhat of a moving Nordic mood. The music is focused at a wide spectrum of harmonic expressions and sounds that can move between presence and ambience in varying dynamics. Originally the band was inspired by early post rock and experimental bands, which combined with pop influences made IMMANU EL to find and create a sound of their own based on atmospheric soundscapes that became their fundament for their debut album (released 2007). The core in the IMMANU EL sound has ever since the first songs were written in their mid teens been to create something captivating, heartrendingly beautiful and moving, but the performance to create it has changed. As the band members have grown older and turned from teens into young men, the music as well has grown a lot more mature and even more specifically unique. The core of beauty is still there, but what we can hear from today’s IMMANU EL – here with new album ‘MOEN’ in November 2009 - is a rock band with presence and potential in their own sound. Atmospheric surroundings has yielded for a more down to earth, present and forcing kind of music, and the result is something rarely seen or heard before – a sound more touching and beautiful than in the classic pop/rock genre, but with more attitude and presence than in the soundscapes of post rock. IMMANU EL started out in 2004 as a musical experiment by 16-year-old Claes Strängberg that was joined by his twin brother Per. The old friends Michael Persson and Emil Karlsson also joined the Strängberg twins, and they started to create atmospheric pop music influenced by post rock in an old barn outside the town of Jönköping on the Swedish countryside while still studying in high school. Their demo “Killerwhale EP” was sold out and spread all over the world. After finishing high school the band got signed by And The Sound Records and the debut album “They’ll Come, They Come” was released the following year, distributed in Europe, Asia, USA and digitally worldwide. The debut album and the band’s live appearances on tour received glorious reviews from all over the world, such as: “One of the biggest Swedish pop-hopes right now” - METRO ”Excels in respect, and in a myriad other respects throughout the whole album. Absolutely briliant.” – IT'S A TRAP (USA) IMMANU EL is one of the very few talented that leaps over the threshold where you always get that priceless precense. And they do it with heavy feet:” – GROOVE (SE) IMMANU EL has been touring Europe frequently since 2008 with more than 100 concerts in 20 countries, gaining a great reputation as one of the most promising live acts in their genre. The band’s highly expected second album ‘MOEN’ will be released in late fall 2009 by ATS Records with distribution partners all over the world.
