Bio

PORK&MEAD MAG.:
“Tobias Wilner is the glue that keeps Blue Foundation alluring, bullshit-free, and strong yet emotional.”

PREFIX
"Lost" is the first track we're hearing from In My Mind I Am Free and it finds the duo teaming with
Brooklyn-by-way-of-Copenhagen songstress Sara Savery. Her breathy, longing vocals beautifully complement the brushes
of woozy guitars, slow-bursting noise, and fuzzy drums and bass.”

MTV HIVE
"And their storybook tale of longing is just as enchanting without any vampires."

MMN/MOG Music NETWORK
"the duo once again explore a lush form of electronica, and the result is nothing short of sublime."

THE OWL MAG.
“Excitement grows with every track and then before you know it, it’s reached that last song.
It’s like waking up from a wonderful dream and entering back into the real world."

Noisey/VICE about "Broken Life"
"An amazing song..."

Now It’s On
"Electronic dream-pop? That seems to be the most fitting description for the new album from the duo of
Tobias Wilner and Bo Rande, better known as Blue Foundation. Label it whatever you like, I call the majority of it mesmerizing.”

THE DAILY RIND
“There are some albums that you can tell are going to take you on an adventure as soon as the play button is hit.”

ZAP TOWN
12 years into their career, and it’s easy to see just how much they have refined their sound.
When you hear the melancholy synthpop hums echoing about, the universe is yours to hold on to.”
