'Voyagers' is a glittering, sensual exploration into an unchartered and fully-electrified universe. It is a tale of 'Future Love', where a newly-conscious, idealized romanticism is propelled by contagious dance beats, synth-driven melodies, and sweetly seductive vocals. The soundscape is sophisticated and visionary, yet the stories are intimate and relatable. 'Voyagers' is a journey through a spectrum of emotional highs and lows: from the apex of adult infatuation and desire, to the darkest abyss of disconnection and existentialism. Every detail from beat, hook, and lyrical lexicon is unveiled deftly.
Connecting through a shared admiration of each other's early bands in the late 1990's (Johan in Club 8, Rose in Shoestrings), the two bonded, discussing everything from musical aspirations to relationships. In Fall 2015, Johan was intent on finding a lyricist who could not only sing but also fully understood his very specific musical aesthetic. Rose came to mind quickly. "We had never met before we started making music together so I didn't know what to expect. But as soon as we started writing together, magical things happened," Johan says.
Rose reflects, "Unlike previous projects I've done, writing for Djustin has been a wholly intuitive process for me. I feel that every song Johan sends me to write for carries an intent and energy of its very own, and my task is to translate that energy into a narrative everyone can connect with. I see our finished songs as sacred space between us. No matter the distance, we give pieces of ourselves, and the songs manifest themselves into something only the two of us can create together as Djustin. It is deeply intense and life-affirming."
