Finally, after two years of waiting the indierock band Fremmand (FO/DK) is ready to release their highly anticipated sophomore album Wrong via Tutl Records on Friday the 5th of February 2021.

For the past two years the album has meticulously been taking shape in Aarhus (DK), Torshavn (FO) and even sunny Los Angeles. In reference to the changing geographical framework, the overall style of the band has become more guitar-oriented and angular.

Similar to the self-titled debut album from 2018, the quartet explores the tension between dreams and desperation in a soundscape that relentlessly draws a line to the spherical early Goth and Post Punk scene. However, the end result is firmly planted in the present with its gaze set to the future.

Standing in front, with a personality and presence that vividly resonates both on stage and recording, is Fremmand lead singer Jana Hjalgrimsdóttir, while her band, consisting of drummer and producer Tobias Weltzer, guitarist Sigmund Zachariassen and bassist Tinna Tótudóttir, creates the enthralling sonic landscape around her fiery vocals.

Several prominent guest musicians feature on the album Wrong</em>; it’s an exciting who’s-who on the world of rock. Thus, there are contributions from the legendary guitarist Carlos Alomar (David Bowie), Richard Fortus (Guns’n’Roses), Peter Hayes (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and the Swiss-born New Yorker Null + Void, known for his synths -driven clubbangers and collaborates with Dave Gahan, Moby and The Kills among others.

The album’s title track and first single, “Wrong”, explores the ambivalent feelings of power and powerlessness a human being may feel when situations in life occur that we think are a matter of choice but are in fact beyond our control.

The evocative video for the track was filmed in Tokyo during the first Corona shutdown and shows a modern city lying desolate. It effectively helps to give the song an apocalyptic vibe that many dreary lockdown viewers may recognize at the moment.
