It's a split personality. Sailor & I is a metaphor, a representation of two wills within one person.
An alter ego for Swedish artist Alexander Sjoedin, the name aptly covers his music - it's horrible beauty and delicate drama.
With a new EP due on June 30th, the songwriter is ready to let others feed on this contradiction. Out through Life and Death, it follows the success of debut single 'Tough Love' - released last year through Black Butter.
Taking a different tact, the new material retains this pop edge but introduces a renewed sense of darkness. Ahead of the EP's release, Sailor & I has handed Clash a special video containing an acoustic rendition.
'Turn Around' is a mature return, packed with delicate poise and subtle drama. The accompanying clip features a young woman swimming underwater, her graceful movements echoing the music.
Watch it now.
Sailor & I is set to play the Urban Forest in Dalston, London on July 13th.
