The Stockholm based trio is made up of Emil and Caroline Jonsson and their enigmatic work partner Anders Eckeborn. They play warm and laid-back aesthetic Dream-Pop.
Having released their self-titled debut album in March 2019 to critical acclaim – it has since been streamed more than 13 million times and culminated in a major headline tour across the United States last Autumn.
Emil and Caroline lived a full, enviable life before deciding to relocate to Stockholm and focus on themselves. The duo got down to business on their own sounds fusing tones and melodies and taking inspiration from the music of their youth: the old tunes crackling on grandparents‘ vinyl records, hymns from church, indie-pop jewels, classical opuses (“Bach, of course,”) and gospel choirs. Still, something was missing…With Anders thrown into the mix, ViVii galloped into life: “he slowly but surely grew into our producer and a third member of ViVii.
Speaking about their relationship Emil explains, “We work with another guy, but he doesn‘t like the limelight at all…” “Anders is amazing, he loves all noises,” continues Caroline. “It took ages, we were so slow before, but once we met Anders it became easy – we are all slow workers individually but together it‘s beautiful. It‘s always so natural.”
It‘s taken ViVii decades to reach this point – a fairytale ending with glorious music to show for it. Everything has led them to a dizzy high; but this is no true end to anything – this is just the beginning.
