Dödens Dal – “Det som följer”

August 27, 2015 at 7:03 pm

Dödens Dal

Dödens Dal, that is the duo Henrik von Euler and Rickard Jäverling, will release a follow-up to their two earlier albums in the Autumn. The trilogy, which was described as a mourning process from the start, will now come to a conclusion with the record “På Natten, Ovan Molnen”. This week they gave us a first taste, the song “Det som följer”, which may send us a hint of where they are heading with the new album.

We arrive in a grand soundscape with slowly pumping, dark synths. There is some other vibe to it now, though, like if we’re walking with determined steps out of sadness towards something different. This feeling is confirmed in the end of the song when the clouds suddenly disperse, the sunlight cuts through and the major scales beautifully lights up our way. This is accompanied by a faint breeze of nostalgia, like a calm reflection of what’s been, as we’re making our way toward brighter days.

Natali Felicia – “Easy Ride”

Natali Felicia

It’s time to bring this page back to life after a summer of idleness. Outside the sun is hotter than ever before this summer, but more and more eager artists in my inbox are shouting for Autumn and movement. Time to pick up my pen then.

I’m starting with Natali Felicia’s new single “Easy Ride”, which this week also was accompanied by a music video. If you remember well, you know that she released her debut single in Spring, “Used to Be”, a slow, beautiful and dreamy pop ballad which was hard to resist. The new song is in the same spirit and comes out like a child of late summer’s nights, from the long nordic sunsets where we dwell in the space between day and night. She’s singing about fears and how she meets them, it’s dark and melancholic, but yet warm and hopeful when she embraces the fears and rocks herself slowly to safety and secure grounds. Maybe it’s the music journey she just begun she’s singing about, and surely she has picked the right subject? Most often it’s our own fears which is in the way of what we truly want to accomplish. The song and the video dress the subject in a wonderful way, and on the sideline I shout: You have nothing to be afraid of, it’s gonna be alright!

Vallmo

Emil Andersson calls his solo project Vallmo, a project he started two years ago. A couple of weeks ago he released the debut single “Solen”, a beautiful, summer-vibing, but melancholic song in a Swedish singer/songwriter-pop tradition.
