Swedish folk-pop duo Smith & Thell, fresh off the resounding success of their sophomore album ‘Pixie’s Parasol’ in 2021, which has amassed an impressive 250 million streams on Spotify alone, now grace us with their latest offering, the captivating single ‘We Were In Love’. This bewitching track serves as a tantalizing preview of what lies ahead on their forthcoming studio album.

Continuing to explore the warm and euphoric aesthetic they have become renowned for, ‘We Were In Love’ is a lush and powerful listening experience. Inspired by profound and enduring love, this passionate new release marks the inception of the duo’s next enthralling phase in their already shimmering career.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind the single, Victor Thell of Smith & Thell shares, “The song draws from the story of my grandparents, who shared a marriage that spanned 65 years. Our grandparents grew up in an era where it was less common to openly express emotions, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t feel deeply. After my grandfather’s passing, I could see in my grandmother’s eyes just how much she missed him. This prompted us to write about the unspoken words and emotions we wish we could have expressed while our loved ones were still with us. ‘We Were In Love’ is our interpretation of my grandmother’s love for my grandfather—the words she never had a chance to say.”

Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, Smith & Thell is a Grammy-winning pop/folk duo comprising Maria Smith and Victor Thell. The pair first crossed paths as teenagers at a local music event in their hometown of Helsingborg, where their shared passion for creating captivating music blossomed. Blending pop sensibilities with heartfelt lyrics, Smith & Thell embarked on a musical journey that has earned them a dedicated following.
