SOJO - a new music duo from Sweden that fit perfectly on the border between pop music and dance music.
You may already know the two siblings from their previous musical ouput. Sofie Larsson was one of the members of Lucky Twice who had a huge European hit in the middle of the last decade with 'Lucky'. She also won Sweden's Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2002. Her brother Johan used to be in a popband in Germany, called Se-Side. And both have regularly found the time in between music projects to embark on modelling work.
Now after working together and discovering their vocal and performance potential as a pair, they've launched as SOJO. And they've got the full backing of two hugely respected names in Scandinavian pop music -- they're being produced by Jonas Von Der Burg, and managed by Victoria Ekeberg, the music and management masterminds behind September.
The first single was 'I Remember', produced by Jonas Von Der Burg, and written by Jonas alongside Anoo Bhagavan and Niklas Von Der Burg. It's got the pop melodies and sounds that you'd expect from that trio, but it's also clear that they've taken something of a new direction with SOJO, and incorporated a definite 2011 feel into the music. The single reached the top 10 of the iTunes dance chart when it was released in Sweden in August, also reaching the top 30 of the main iTunes chart.
Second single 'Jumping Jam' has a progressively harder sound. It's got the production to place SOJO firmly on the dance floors, and the commercial pop melodies to put them on the radio.
