Christian Ramefelt has been working as a songwriter and freelance musician behind other Swedish artists. Now he decided to come forward as an artist himself, and in Spring he released his debut album “Porslin i väggen” where he could nurture his desire to write personal lyrics in Swedish. And personal it is, with an album that’s mainly is about cracked relationships, broken promises, farewells, betrayal and longing, which he views from different perspectives.
The music lands somewhere in the vicinity of Lars Winnerbäck, which is maybe most obvious in the fine duet with Edith Backlund, “Ge upp och gå” (“Give up and walk away”), but also Jakob Hellman and Peter LeMarc can be scented. There’s never a really dark atmosphere, despite the heavy subject, even if the music breathes a beautiful, close melancholy, but also determination and positive vibes. Competent songwriting and and a smoothe production. Listen for yourself here below in two songs.
