New bands emerge every day. Literally every single day. Only a select few are able to capture your attention enough to want to take a listen and then…deliver. HIDININ has not disappointed.
Comprised of Daniel Kadawatha and Sebastian Forslund, HIDININ is a newly formed pop duo from Sweden. It was in late 2015 that the two began experimenting with various pop sounds in the studio. Working as full time songwriters and producers, they used unfinished ideas of songs they had previously worked on to create a new sound. “Free But Hollow,” Daniel’s song, was the first song to be reworked under the duo, followed by an original song the two created together from its’ inception titled “Something Better.”
Although formerly bandmates in another rock band called KADAWATHA, it was destined for the two to join forces in a new venture that focused solely on their passion for experimental pop. HIDININ was formed. Previous success, which includes touring with bands like Paramore and Tegan & Sara, as well as working with major producers and major record labels, made their transition to their own band a seamless one. Daniel and Sebastian are already well aware of what it takes to create the music that people want to hear.
Masters at work, HIDININ tackles the entire production of the song – writing the lyrics, producing the music, creating melodies, composition, mixing the song, and everything else in between so that we as listeners end up with a quality product.
The members describe their sound as “alternative pop with strong melodies.” They use a blend of both electronic and acoustic elements to take advantage of both worlds. Their sound is vivid, colorful, and produced with a love for detail.
It’s important as an artist to connect with your fans through authenticity. There are no empty meanings hidden behind their songs. The narrative of most of HIDININ’s songs are everyday stories that most people experience. They use their gift of music to paint these stories in a colorful and dreamy way, which not only pierces your ears but your heart.
Currently, they plan to release a series of songs in the fall of 2016.
Their music is available on every major music streaming service: Spotify, Soundcloud, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer etc.
HIDININ is a new band with legendary ways. We cannot wait to see what else they have in store.
