After years spent hitmaking for major artists, including US electronica outfit Passion Pit, Swedish songwriting and production duo Vola Tila released their acclaimed debut EP ‘Personality Apocalypse’ in 2019 in collaboration with Sonic Boom (MGMT, Beach House, Panda Bear) and Charlie Storm (Håkan Hellström). The cinematic, dreamy indie pop captivates into a bittersweet emotional explosion, combining longing melodies with touches of 60s and 70s influences, modern instrumentation and emotive wistful vocals. The duo infuses their sound with distinct Scandinavian DNA and an influence of genre crossovers and acts such as Tame Impala, Gorillaz, Jamie XX, David Bowie, The Beatles and The Smiths.

Both hailing from the Swedish west coast, Johannes Henriksson and Richard Andersson met in 2013 and have spent almost every day together in the studio since. After spending years writing and producing for other artists, they were left with a feeling of emptiness and a desire to dedicate themselves to the music they really craved. In April 2019, they debuted as Vola Tila with the single ‘New Behaviour’, and the project very much became a way for them to explore their own minds and the big questions they struggle with. They’re not looking to give you answers or conclusions, but rather to throw all your emotions up in the air, and maybe meet you somewhere on the way down. It’s all an eternal search for something more.
