About Arn-Identified Flying Objects and Alien Friends
Arn-Identified Flying Objects and Alien Friends or just Alien Friends for short is a classic rock and power pop musician who is based in Sweden, Stockholm. In the year 2021, ARN-IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS AND ALIEN FRIENDS issued a number of singles in addition to a double album. Despite the fact that many of the songs are built in the musical soil of the 1960s and 1970s, there is no sense of nostalgia on the latter album, which was co-produced by the well-known David Myhr (from the Merrymakers) and combines elements of power pop, folk, and indie rock. The lyrics are genuine and poetic, with moments of humour thrown in here and there, but they are always modern and sincere.
This production had contributions from a huge number of different musicians. It is important to recognise the members of REDMOON, Daniel Lagerlof, Ake Lindgren, and Johan Lundstrom, in addition to the skilled David Myhr, who plays a variety of instruments and contributes lead vocals to a number of songs.
There are still more nice things to come. In 2022, three new singles will be released. By Your Bed, the first of these songs, was released in May. A full-length album will be released at the start of 2023.

About The Release “Suck”
Despite the fact that Alien Friends had originally composed SUCK for his band Redmoon, he ultimately recorded it on his own and released it as his debut single as a solo artist. It’s a song about sucking up and selling out, but it’s also about feeling lonely and anxious about being rejected. When he first conceived of the song, he had the idea that it would be a parody of disco. However, when one listens to the song now, elements of classic rock and power pop can be heard. It is essential to keep in mind that this is the album version of the song (from 2022). In comparison to the single, this one is somewhat lengthier and features a composition that is more balanced and mastered. Both the intro and the outro are also different.
