Azure Blue

Azure Blue is the solo project from Tobias Isaksson, known to some from the bands Laurel Music and Irene on the Swedish label Labrador. The project started in 2010 after a relocation from Gothenburg to Stockholm. The name is a paraphrase of Dennis Wilson's "Pacific Ocean Blue". Azure Blue's music has always been timeless yet modern––honest, pure and wise like Paul Auster's The Red Notebook. For all this time it has made us laugh and cry and pick up a novel. Across five albums, Azure Blue has marked a decade of quality songs and earned a place in the synth pop hall of fame next to kindred spirits China Crisis, New Order and OMD. Isaksson remains one of the alternative pop scene's most prolific perfectionists––with a steady flow of writing, producing and finding new ways to reinvent his music.
