The Endorphins hit the ground running with the release of their first two singles ‘Dead Or Alive’ and ‘Parachute’, and now the Stockholm-based siblings are launching their debut Afterglow EP. This is The Endorphins’ second body of work. It picks up where the last EP, Sublime, ended, with a dreamy and euphoric backdrop to silky vocals.
”The EP is largely based on relationship experiences we’ve both been through. It’s very much a feel good record. There are songs about falling in love, being unconditional with someone or wanting to get through something together. Every song has a hopeful meaning to them. The title summarizes the feeling of the record perfectly, it’s preferably played watching the afterglow skies while the city rises”, says The Endorphins.
Afterglow is full of pop-R&B gems like the lead single ‘Home’, which is a pure R&B duet with singer AMAYA where the artists go vocally back and forth about finally not being lost anymore.
She’s the singer with the golden voice, he’s the producer. They’re siblings Alva & August Heldt and grew up together in the middle of the bursting music scene in Stockholm, Sweden. Together, they are The Endorphins. The Future R&B duos first chapter was written in 2017 when they signed their first songs to the popular youtube channel/label Majestic Casual, known for releasing music by acts such as Mura Masa, KAYTRANADA, Disclosure and more. After over 12 million streams and the release of their first EP, titled Sublime, in 2019 it’s now time for their next chapter with two EP’s and more coming out in 2020. Inspired by 90’s R&B, 60’s motown, the poetry of everyday life and simple words – The Endorphins create dreamy, euphoric, soulful and funky music based on feel-good vibes.
“Our music is all about inducing endorphins. It’s about love, friendship, parties and sex. The vibe of our songs is influenced by the good vibes that were floating around NYC in the 70’s – that escape from reality that the disco era was built upon”, The Endorphins say.
