Swedish synth-pop band the Mary Onettes have unveiled two new tracks, ‘Forever Before Love’ and ‘Future Grief’. The latter features a guest appearance from Adnes Aldén, a close friend of brothers Philip and Henri Ekström. Take a listen below.
“‘Forever Before Love’ is about finding the way back to yourself after a very long relationship,” Philip Ekström explained in a statement. “The process of trying to connect with the person you were before that.”
“This track has been around for quite some time,” he added of ‘Future Grief’. “We recorded the vocals with Agnes in 2016 and we have been waiting eagerly to share this one. Agnes wrote the lyrics for the verse and I wrote the words for the choruses, which gives the story a nice two angel perspective.”
Earlier this year, the Mary Onettes returned with another double single featuring ‘Easy Hands’ and ‘Pearl Machine’.
