Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
The new EP is coming along nicely! My producer Janne Manninen has just started mixing the songs and I’m happy to give you not one, but TWO previews of the new songs. Here’s also some crazy pics from our studio!
Each producer got to choose one of my old songs to make a re-make of. Janne chose ‘Jonestown’ from my third album and made it into an electronica version. We’ve also changed the lyrics on the chorus to my original lyrics that didn’t make the final cut on the first version.
As you may know by now I’m having a pledge for my upcoming EP “L” the first of 4 EPs to be released 2011 and here’s the deal. You can pre-order the EP and thereby help me fund it – or if you want to be even more involved you can choose one of the many options on the site – it’s up to you how much you want to help. Check it out here:
This is how it works: if you pledge no money will be withdrawn from your account until the whole pledge is over at the end of January. If the pledge doesn’t come through and we don’t reach 100% no money will be withdrawn from you at all, but you also won’t get the things you ordered. So it’s crucial for you and me that this pledge comes through because you want some great music and some great stuff and I want to get some great music out there!
I’ve just posted an update where you can listen to one of the new songs! How about that. Check it out now!
