about

A year after coming together as Loftän, Janell and Julia release their debut EP, where they mix the acoustic with the electronic. The two spend lots of fun weekends recording at their homes and three days at Sprout City Studios to transform songs that had only been alive on stage into pieces that deserve the best pair of headphones you can afford!

The title “From Here” ties together the theme of moving, moving through life, moving to a new country, moving through doorways, moving effortlessly, staying on track... It’s also a symbol for what’s to come for Loftän. Janell and Julia are looking forward to sharing their music and universe with you, to see where their career as musicians will take them, from here.
