Tidens Ande (The Spirit Of Our Time) is about daring to live and feel, it’s about creativity, music and friendship. An ongoing life project that has arised over several years and which began sometime around year 2000 when André Sandström for the first time began to compose his lyrics. André never really thought he would record and perform his songs but years passed and today Tidens Ande consist of the four friends: André Sandström (guitar / vocals), André “The Captain” Ekström (guitar / lead guitar), Hannes Autio Pudas (percussion / harmonies) and Alexander Wahlberg (bass). The quartet complement each other in a way where Tidens Ande’s naked and poetic lyrics form the basis of a warm, loving and present music.
The lyricist André S has chosen to mainly write and sing in swedish, because he think it’s challenging to paint emotions in his mother tongue. That is how he was born, how he thinks, talks, cries and laughs. Inspired by simplicity, emotions, the life he is living and people around him, André tries to structure the complex chaos inside of his head. He believes that the emotion, which sometimes can be scented in a pure and true voice, can mediate the actual meaning of a song.
In early October 2013, Tidens Ande will head into a studio with the object to release some new material during the spring of 2014. Where Tidens Ande is heading no one really knows, they’re just trying to enjoy and make the most of present time. If you want to sponsor Tidens Ande’s work, you’ll find their music for sale on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, WiMP and similar sites. Otherwise just enjoy & spread the word of their music, whoever you are, wherever you live. One Heart, One Love.
Greetings / Tidens Ande
