Listen to Got To Get Out

Late night bike riding in Stockholm and endless love for retro synthesizers inspired Ester Ideskog, Sweden, to compose synth heavey electro pop hits under her new alias Vanbot.
Vanbot has been making music since the early teen years and was constantly searching for the right sound, but she often found herself a little too sprawling. After the completion of “Bitter is the sweetest part” her music finally found it’s voice. In the little studio with the oversized world map Vanbot’s dreams can fly freely to compose electronic soundscapes inspired by synthesizers and drum machines.
All material is written by Vanbot herself and produced by partner Sebastian Forslund who also worked with Swedish indie artists I Break Horses, Blackstrap and Loney, Dear.
Her self-titled debut album was released last spring and was followed by a remix EP with work from Niva, Fear of Tigers and Bremen. Being heavily praised in Europe Vanbot is now hitting US with NYLON Magazine and MTV Buzzworthy loving her latest single.
