‘Last Try’ - STRØM | Review

Swedish producer and artist STRØM releases new single ‘Last Try’.

‘Last Try’ is this beautiful balance of electronic synths and some R&B textured vocals. A pulsing, downtempo electronic track produced with precision and avant-garde sensibility, the song is the first to be released from STRØM's forthcoming debut album, which is slated for a February 2020 release.

The new single is only the second-ever from the budding producer, whose debut track as STRØM was born out of sheer coincidence after composing a song for a BMW commercial, which he later finished and released in 2017 as "Mesmerize." The song drew acclaim from a slew of music outlets and quickly shot to #1 on Hype Machine.

Growing up in Värmdö, an island off the coast of Stockholm, STRØM began experimenting with musical instruments around age 7 and later formed a string of bands through his teen years. As he grew up, he took a greater interest in production and eventually moved to Berlin for a period to study music production and sound design.

A project whose purest intention is an experimental outlet for musical expression free of genre bounds, STRØM's forthcoming debut album embodies this ethos.

STRØM is an alternative project of a 27-year-old producer and multi-instrumentalist from Sthlm, Sweden. The project was created to break away from musical structures, forming kind of a hybrid genre with no rules or fixed directions. According to STRØM himself, the music is influenced by artists such as Daniel Lanois, Jai Paul, D’Angelo & DIIV.
