The third album by Swedish singer/songwriter EMMA NORDENSTAM takes a step in a new direction as her first album completely sung in English. Her sound has grown into a more emotional, melancholic mood than before - a mood that immediately brings your thought to such legends as VASHTI BUNYAN and JONI MITCHELL. This album will remember you of the early acid folk era, as well as the modern sounds of ANNA TERNHEIM, FERN KNIGHT and MARISSA NADLER. "The June morning we arrived to the studio it was already hot outside; bumblebees were buzzing beneath a magnolia tree with white buds... I sat down with my guitar and watched the magnolia flowers blossom in front of me while recording the basis of the songs. Six months later we walked in snow between the recording room and control room - Tom ran back and forward with new firewood to the stove while me and Cecilia made bonfires between the last overdubs." Emma plays most of the instruments herself, but on "Response To The Birddream",
Lisa Isaksson (LISA O PIU) also participates. Members of MY BROTHER THE WIND take part on the last song, and this was recorded by Mattias Olsson of ÄNGLAGÅRD. "Response To The Birddream" will be released together with EMIKA KLASDOTTER's "Everything Is Screaming"
on March 20, 2013.
