FRESH OFF THE TOAST
When a electronic duo ask for help and when we love synth music the answer is easy... Yes.
We are proud of Jonas Wolcher at Dino Publishing JW who graded and edited Train to Spain latest video "I Follow You!
"To make the video more dynamic four different colours of the shots were used. One pink, one gray, blue and a brownish dirty look. Each color plays it's own part in the video" As you can see for yourself the result. It became stunningly good. - Jonas Wolcher
Train to Spain are a Swedish duo that make catchy electronica. Helena Wigeborn and Jonas Rasmusson first got in contact on facebook in september 2013, and soon the band was a fact. They are both fans of the early 80’s music and their songs are influenced by various 80's bands, such as Depeche Mode, Alphaville, and Howard Jones. The name Train to Spain actually comes from a Human League song, ”The things that dreams are made of”.
Jonas is the one behind the synths and generates that specific Train to Spain sound. Helena finish off with lyrics that are influenced by her own life, and the people she meet. She is also influenced by some of the more modern artists such as "Lana Del Ray" and "Chvrches". Helena's seducing vocals together with Jonas' machinery bring forward some really top notch tunes
On the 22nd of May 2015 their album ”What it’s all about” was released. By that time they’ve already been playing in various different venues/clubs in Sweden. In march 2014 they played in London with Machinista and the Swedish group Page. In September they are returning to London for the third time.
Train to Spain are currently working on their second album, which has got a slightly heavier sound but still with those catchy pop melodies. Their first single from the upcoming album is called ”I follow you” and is written by the singer Helena.It was a song I wrote back in my teens and I didn’t know back then this was gonna be a Train to Spain hit, but the match is perfect Jonas and our producer Patrik have the ability to make the sound just right.
THE RELEASE OF TRAIN TO SPAIN NEW VIDEO "I FOLLOW YOU"
The promo video for ‘I Follow You’ is a London travelogue from when the pair last visited the city to perform at the REAL EXPERTS ‘Expertism For The Casual Voyeur’ album launch party in February. Despite the cold temperatures in which it was filmed, the end result suits the positive mood of the song. It’s a true happy love song and I also hope it shows the love that we have for London. We hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it.
TRAIN TO SPAIN are currently recording the follow –up to their 2015 debut album ‘What it’s All About’, set for release in early 2018 while they will be playing in Germany this October at the Synthetic Orange event; the line-up also includesVILE ELECTRODES and fellow Swedes PRESENCE OF MIND.
