To follow up the massive hit that “Call Your Name” was Gravitonas started to collaborate with one of the most well-known Swedish hit makers – Anders Bagge (Madonna, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez). The result of this collaboration is the new single/video “Incredible”.
This is the perfect match between edgy ground breaking house music mixed up with catchy pop tunes! This is also the first time the whole band appears in a video. The single includes some floorfiller remixes by names like Axento, Andy Harding, NORD and SoundFactory.

The EP “The Hyperborea EP” includes some amazing collaborations with Swedish Rebstar and Hungarian star Kállai-Saunders in the beautiful and the dramatic ballad “Love Hurts”.
After meeting with Kallay Saunders in Budapest, Gravitonas decided to invite him for an international collaboration on the track. Mixing the rock vocals of Andreas with the soul vocals of Kallay Saunders turned out to be ideal for creating a radio-friendly ballad with a fresh sound for 2012.

Through this collaboration, Gravitonas are excited about presenting a dear friend and hopefully Hungary's next music export, the multitalented and hardworking Kállay Saunders, to an international pop and rock audience. The EP also features a guest performance by the well-known Swedish night club and electro queen Rebecca Stella.

Andreas Öhrn rose to fame as the founder and front figure of Swedish Amateurs, Sweden's leading underground punk rock band. Crossing over to the mainstream rock scene, Öhrn skipped traditional rock'n'roll and instead opted to work with electronica producers Bard and Wikström to create an innovative hybrid sound. Öhrn's co-producer Ben Smith is also involved with Gravitonas as the main guitar player of the project.

Although Gravitonas is the first project the two work together on, Alexander Bard and Henrik Wikström are both legendary record producers in Sweden. Bard first rose to fame in the early 1990s as one of the founders of the Swedish electro-pop scene (the other two being producers Denniz Pop and Max Martin). In 1992, with his own band Army Of Lovers (over seven million records sold to date) as its only signing, he partnered with legendary entrepreneur and producer Ola Håkansson to launch the classic record label Stockholm Records. Stockholm Records expanded rapidly, breaking major international stars like The Cardigans, A-Teens and Stakka Bo, and by the time the company was sold to Universal Music in 1998 it was already Scandinavia's biggest independent record company.
