Rather than aiming at misanthropic individualism, their inward-looking messages are carefully balanced with the idea of togetherness: In the face of adversity, we humans have better chances of surviving if we unite. The band’s idea is not just singing TO the people, but WITH them, as frontman Andrew Johansson explains.
This inclusive philosophy is reflected in their versatile combination of styles, putting together tracks that could work as introductory songs to new fans; while others may appeal to more brutally-oriented listeners: “We love the speed and the brutal sound, but also epic stuff and sing-alongs and love”.
The release of their single “End Time” in 2017 got the band the top position on Swedish national radio station P3’s program for upcoming acts. The song was on rotation on the top 10 for five consecutive weeks, getting the band a place on the station’s top 20 most successful bands that year. They got signed to Rexius Records and participated in Karlstad’s renowned festival “Putte i Parken” some months later.
Unfound Reliance is now preparing for the release of their EP “A Layered Mind”.
