ARCTIC RAIN – The One (2020)

ARCTIC RAIN is, quite simply, the new Melodic Rock / AOR sensation from Sweden. The band is a result of the collaboration between songwriter / keyboardist Pete Alpenborg, guitarist Magnus Berglund, and singer Tobias Jonsson. Later on, bassist Gert Daun and drummer Jonas Jonsson joined forces with Arctic Rain for the recording of their upcoming Frontiers Music debut album, ‘The One‘.
The aim for the band was to write songs with strong melodic rock vibes based around the type of tasteful instrumental harmonies typical for a lot of acts in the ’80s and ’90s.
And Sweden did it again: ”The One” is a wonderful debut plenty of hooks and AOR melodies to die for; massive keyboards, highly melodic guitars and a really great vocalist make “The One“ an absolute highlight of the year so far.
