The Swedish dream pop band Joe & The Anchor

“So Bad works as our own motivational song, it makes us remember why we do what we do. Setbacks are something everyone can relate to and the song's message is about fighting past it. Because in the end, the journey is always worth it.” ~Joe & The Anchor Band

Joe & The Anchor started out as an indie rock band in 2014, releasing several albums and singles. In 2018 they decided to start over and switch gears to writing contemporary pop music. With a strong visual style and modern production, Joe & The Anchor delivers energetic guitar-driven pop, defining themselves as a promising act on the Swedish pop scene.

Joe & The Anchor is a colorful pop band, with a sound reminiscent of bands like Foster The People, OneRepublic, Imagine Dragons, and 5 Seconds of Summer. The band is made up of members Joakim Rosenlund, Robin Zhang, Viktor Edsjö, Ruben Sonesson.

The Swedish dream pop band Joe & The Anchor are after one year of waiting finally back with new vibrating music - So Bad. So Bad is the first song to be released from the band since their debut EP Antidote last year. An uplifting track with electronic trap influences that captures the feeling of holding your head high even when life is challenging, a motto that has formed the band while they’ve stayed together through the ups and downs of life.

The quote also reflects how hard the friends Joakim Rosenlund, Robin Zhang, Viktor Edsjö, and Ruben Sonesson work for their success. 

During their years of being active JATA has been able to explore several different genres, play around Sweden and perform as supporting act for Mando Diao – all of which has formed them into a strong live band with a unique musical style. With their colorful sound, uplifting lyrics, and powerful vocals, Joe & The Anchor invites the listeners into their dreamlike world.
