“ATEM” is Alexander Muell’s first solo release as an artist with the attempt of creating an intimate and pure sensation that is not trying to be either academic due to complex harmonies nor epic due to big drums and arrangements but an attempt at an almost childlike naivety, simplicism and purity. 

“…introspective, melancholic to try and capture the moment of holding on to something that is or will be lost no matter what you try.”
