Stockholm’s Azure Blue (SE) is the solo project of Tobias Isaksson, named as a tribute to Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue. The debut album Rule of Thirds, released in November 2011, dealt with three lost loves and a relocation from the west coast to the capital. It flirted with the likes of Bryan Ferry and Grant McLennan, 80′s sounds and samples from underrated independent directors. Authors like Hemingway and Östergren had inspired a meditation that was nostalgic without being inaccessible. The image was light blue, widescreen and dreamy.
In 2013 he released his second album. Like the soundtrack to a fantasy movie that’s never been made, Beyond The Dreams There’s Infinite Doubt is a record filled with unabashed wonder, pastel colored hues and heart flipping melodies.
His third album Beneath The Hill I Smell The Sea is set to be released May 2015.
