Love Is All gain member

Band grows as they finish new album

Love Is All have added a new member to their line-up ahead of their second album.

Åke Strömer will play keyboards and saxophone live with the band.

Josephine Olausson wrote on the band’s blog that the new member will “be playing the saxophone with us. Oh, and keyboards. And some weird handclap machine we haven’t yet seen”.


The singer added that the band have also finished recording their new album.

“The record is all recorded, but we just can’t help but working on more and more songs,” she said. “”Or, I’m not sure songs is the appropriate word, it’s more like jamming, and rehearsing for the shows we have coming up.”

A release date for the follow-up to 2005’s ‘Nine Times The Same Song’ has yet to be announced.
