about

Swedish post-rock outfit U137 blew listeners away with it’s debut "Dreamer On The Run" (82 Million streams on Spotify) offering a unique combination of sounds glowing with fresh energy, diversity and originality. Despite the deceptive simplicity and immediate familiarity of the music, on closer inspection you will find that each U137 song is skillfully arranged with a soothing, soaring, sweeping complexity and self-disciplined intricacy that together form a blissful and recognizably human score to any life event. With the aim of generating a feeling of pure euphoria in the listener, succeed U137 does...on every level. This is Scandinavian artistry at the highest level.

"Imagination is U137's biggest sounding album to date and further defines the sound I have been progressing towards. The album features many new instruments including church organs, flutes, felt piano, various types of drums and big sounding pads and keyboards. Thematically, the album is about my journey deep within my imagination and creating a soundtrack for my dreams and thoughts. I have always been fascinated by space and what might exist beyond where humans can travel and explore, so most songs on Imagination are about leaving earth for something bigger, something different, something exciting. Writing music is like therapy and it's one of my basic needs. Just as food and water are a necessity, creating music keeps me sane. Without it, I go to a dark place," says Oscar Gullbrandsen.

Oscar continues, "It's hard to choose a favorite track because it varies depending on my mood. The opener Run Towards The Sun has a very bright and uplifting feel to it which I really enjoy when I feel high on life. Songs like Andromeda have a lot darker, more powerful and epic feel to it. Tracks like Big Sky and Forever Longing have that deeper emotional feel to them which is always something I come back to when making music. The climax to Lost Among Stars really touches my heart in an extraordinary way. I hope listeners will be able to enjoy this album as a soundtrack to their own imaginary worlds. I also hope this album will bring joy to the ones out there that are experiencing the struggles of life, perhaps as a portal to a place that brings an uplifting feeling and a sense of wonder and hope."
