Case Conrad – “Leikko”

Case Conrad

It’s been three years since Case Conrad released the debut album “Dew Point“, which is of course far too long to wait for the next one. Gustav Haggren and co have been touring frequently around the world since then, though, and while touring collected material for the new album “Leikko”, which was released in October. I was really looking forward to hearing new music from the band, and I wasn’t disappointed; it’s quite an enjoyable collection of songs they have created.

I recognise the Americana-sounding pop, but now in a bigger sound costume, softer and even more dreamy. Strings and horns join in on some arrangements and new is also that Gustav sometimes hands over the lead vocals microphone to Per Henrik Adolfsson. A couple months ago we got a sneak preview in the shape of the song “Lonelylightlylowshine“. Here’s two more excellent tracks from the record:
