The music that comes out of my speakers right now feels like a soundtrack to the cold, snow-covered landscape outside my window. This first real taste of winter makes an effort to penetrate the window to reach inside, but the tones from Winter Took His Life create a comfortable peace in the room.
Now the name “Winter Took His Life” may seem a little ominous to have as a soundtrack right now, but I feel really good. This naked music with beautiful melodies rather promises that the sky will clear up and the gray days will be followed by sunny, bright winter days. That’s how it feels.
Winter Took His Life is Susanna Brandin, a singer/songwriter that released her debut album last year, “You Know What It’s Like to Be Alone and Shut Down” (Bless the Press). Enjoy three tracks from the album:
If you’re in Göteborg on Thursday, the 27th, you can go to Kontiki and see Winter Took His Life play live.
