Young rapper based in Chicago, Cayman just released a full collection of tracks with The Cayman Ep. This young man with a great sense of humor has a solid musical background. At the age of 8 years old, his parents sent him to classical music classes and he later moved forward to participate in the school’s rock band. His true calling came when he started rapping in improvised ways and saw his peers impressed by his talent. He created Tropical Rap, a form of rap with laid back and groovy beats, aspiring to relax, go with the flow and not take life too seriously. It is also quite peaceful if we compare it to other forms of rap where violence is usually common.

After their EP debut ’Chance of Rain’ and their follow up single ’If God Has a Plan’ the sibling duo Strandels - starring Tova and Sixten Strandell, has been supporting Per Gessle (Roxette) during his summer tour, performed at the Great Escape Festival in England and constantly been working in the studio on new material. Now the duo is back with their brand new single ’Need Your Love’, which is written by both Tova and Sixten as well as with names like Jimmy Harry (Kelly Clarkson, P!NK) and Amy Sheppard (Sheppard).
Strandels own words about ’Need Your Love’: ”We wrote the song with our favorite producer Grizzly, several years ago. The original thought was to write a song about regret in a relationship. When you do something that you regret, and realize that it is actually only one person in question, no matter what. Like a sort of ”forgive me and take me back”- song. It is still about that, but it has also become a sort of declaration of love. ”
With an organic folk-pop sound and a bit of flower power, ’Need Your Love’ is a song that captures the essence of the musical authenticity that Strandels wants to convey.
