Stockholm cult heroes The Legends continue their accidental career with It’s Love, their first album in six years. It’s love details a recent chapter in the life of frontman Johan Angergård that saw him wrestle with loss and identity. Turning 40 brought with it unexpected emotional distance from things that once mattered very much. Suddenly, his role as Labrador Records label boss was no longer important to him, nor was his relationship with someone whom he shared a large chunk of his life. These swirling emotions conspired to spur an abrupt creative streak, producing It’s Love in a span of four months. As expected, the material is heartbreaking and selfaware, reflecting the arduous inner workings of Johan’s journey – but it’s also buoyant and lush, expressing the resilient human spirit.
