Albin Johansson and Andreas Jayasekera Lindbergh, not knowing each other at the time, had both been writing, playing and performing with many different bands while always feeling that there was something missing. Starting to talk about music at a party they both attended, they realized they had the same musical preferences.
They decided to write some songs together to see how things turned out.
Things turned out well and five months after their initial meeting, enough songs to fill an album had been written, recorded and mixed.
During the process drummer Jejo Perković (The Bear Quartet, Infinite Mass, The Janitors) joined, giving the recordings that little extra energy.
Klas Gullbrand, previously working as a guitar player with such diverse artists such as The Teddybears, Lykke Li and Olle Ljungström subsequently joined the band as bass player and thus The Highs & Lows was born.
"In contrast to other things we´ve been involved in, The Highs & Lows is all about being real. Everything with this album came naturally, I guess that´s how it works when you follow your heart instead of your brain" -- Albin & Andreas.
