IMMANU EL is a young Swedish band with a unique sound, Dynamic guitar and
keyboard soundscapes, captive singing and with somewhat of a moving Nordic mood.
The music is focused at varying dynamics and a wide spectrum of harmonic
expressions and sounds that can move between presence and ambience. Originally
the band was inspired by early post rock and experimental bands and sounds,
which combined with pop influences made IE to create a sound of their own based
on atmospheric soundscapes that became their fundament for their debut album.
The core in the IE sound has ever since the first songs were written in their
mid teens been to create something heartrendingly beautiful and moving, but the
performance to create it has changed. As the band members have grown older and
turned from teens into young men, the music as well has got a lot more mature
and even more specifically unique. The core of beauty is still there, but what
we can hear from today’s IMMANU EL is a rock band with confidence, profession
and quality in their own sound. Atmospheric surroundings has yielded for a more
down to earth, present and forcing kind of music, and the result is something
rarely seen or heard before.
In 2008 Immanu El started to co-operate with international agencies and labels,
touring Europe more frequently and getting more and more established in the
independent rock scene throughout the world. Another friend, David Lillberg
joined the band during the fall of 2008, making the band complete.The band’s
highly expected second album will be recorded in the summer of 2009.
