This Swedish sister duo caught my ear a while back when they covered Fleet Foxes song, “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song”. I got all their albums right away. Couldn’t get enough of their sound.
I am a sucker for Swedish singers, but I think they really did something special when they performed Patti Smith’s “Dancing Barefoot”, during the Polar Music Prize, and made her cry. Quite something to see these two girls perform, and provoke emotion like that. They’re that good.
My daughters are getting a bit sick of me playing “Stay Gold”.
I played it all along our drive up to Norrland (700 kilometres) – and back again… and then every morning while we had breakfast.
I say “got sick” but that came suddenly. Like they hit a wall. The day before, we were all humming and singing along:)
Fair enough. I’ll still sit through a concert, and re-listen to all their work – like you can now on iTunes Festival.
Passion, energy, well crafted words and a good beat.
All good stuff. They’re cute, too!
“Shattered and Hollow” is a great hopeful, ambitious, rebellious, adventurous and optimistic yarn.
Ever lived in a small town and wanted, like hell, to get out and do something great? This one’s for you.
