In Spring I told you about Karin Ström’s project with songs about cities that have a special meaning for her. She continued releasing songs from the project this Autumn, the latest one “Montreal”, a warm song about her father and her relation to him. I just had to include the last single also, the beautiful “Stockholm”, which was released in September .

I våras berättade jag om Karin Ströms projekt med låtar om städer som har haft en speciell betydelse för henne. Under hösten har hon fortsatt projektet, nu senast med den nya singeln “Montreal”, en varm låt som handlar om hennes pappa och deras relation. Kan inte låta bli att ta med den förra singeln också, den vackra “Stockholm”, som kom ut tidigare under hösten.

Karin Ström is perhaps mostly known for her own electronica productions from before. After six years of producing in solitude, she felt the need for some company in the studio, which led to a collaboration with the producer Mark Ephraim (A Nighthawk, Sibille Attar, Sofia Knapp). Together with the musicians Kevin Barker (Feist), Parker Kindred (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), and Tyler Wood (Antony & the Johnsons) they recorded the two songs “New York” and “Los Angeles”   in Vibromonk Studios, Brooklyn. She says that these songs are the first songs in a larger project with songs about her relation to various cities.

Karin StrömKarin Ström has managed to achieve quite a lot in her life. She has written two books, “Bensin” (“Gasoline”) and “Feber” (“Fever”), worked as a journalist on Svenska Dagbladet, Elle and a few more and also been dumped by a record label!
I don’t know if it’s because of these experiences or if it’s due to the fact that she has been living in London and Los Angeles or simply that she is just fantastic, that makes the music sound exciting, vibrant and very international.

It’s like a mixture of Irma Schultz and New Order, or Eva Dahlgren and Pet shop boys or…, ah it sounds like the panning synth melodies goes like pin balls in my head with Karin’s soft, but distinct voice caressing the music.

Karin has made a remix together with the Malmö guy Miki, , the captain, which is performed by Miki with his typical, kind of aristocratic skånska (dialect in Skåne, in the south of Sweden)
