::: Wy :::
Wy are longtime lovers Ebba and Michel, from Malmö in Sweden. After several years of playing in bands together, they formed this musical incarnation in 2015 and soon released their debut EP "Never Was" (2016). Their 10-track LP "Okay" (2017), saw them win fans at international tastemaker titles The Line of Best Fit, NYLON, C-Heads, KALTBLUT, NBHAP and The Revue, and paved the way for breaking new ground and universal recognition in 2019 with their sophomore LP "Softie" which was released on April 30th.
::: Sam Florian :::
Blending lo-fi indie with mid-tempo bedroom pop, Sam Florian writes and records his music in a small apartment in Karlstad, Sweden. With the release of his first single Days in early 2018, Sam quickly gained a lot of attention by fans and music editors all over the world by being one of the highlights at Spotifys playlist Fresh Finds.
Florians debut album Youth, released on May 3rd 2019 by Hybris, is heavily influenced by the 80s, lo-fi beats and disco elements. The album drop did further manifest his unique role on the international pop scene of today and Sam continues to create music in that same spirit.
