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.
I haven’t made it as a play-mate yet, but I’m not sorry because I’d much rather be a K-mate!
I’ve done many interviews in my day, answering questions about my music and stuff like that. This time the interview was quite different. How would you react if someone asked you how often you pick your nose for example. Would you be offended? I wasn’t because my friend Scott usually says way worse things than that to me. I think he was even restraining himself when he did the interview with me for his new issue of K Composite magazine that’s available FOR FREE in the app store (for iPad).
Now if I’d be the only one who was interviewed the magazine would be very thin, (something Scott also realized) so he made an effort and interviewed a whole bunch of other people too. You see the thing with the K Composite magazine is that it’s just a lot of interviews with ordinary – or maybe I should say extraordinary – people. You won’t find celebrities but you will find a bunch of weird questions and answers.
K Composite launched in 1991 as a fanzine and this is the first issue for the iPad. As I’m a designer myself I can tell you that Scott has made a pretty awesome job with the design, playing with different fonts and adding graphics and 3D pictures.
As you may know I’m playing the Lollapalooza in Chicago August 1st but I’m also doing a full tour the week before so if you can’t make it to Chicago, check out my website to see if I’ll be visiting your home town.
In a few weeks the first single from my upcoming album “Jonestown” will be released. We’re also releasing a video to the single and the preparations are in full progress. The talented designer/tailor Sanna Nyström will design a beautiful dress for me to wear in the video, and today we met up to discuss her thoughts about the design and take some measurements.
Last year I donated a song to HelpCureBreastcancer to help raise money for breast cancer research!
This year me and a couple of other artists each designed a t-shirt for Rosa Bandet and Modette.se to help raise money for the cause. The t-shirts will be auctioned out on tradera.se from tuesday onward, but you can get a peak of what my t-shirt looks like here. All the money from the auction will go to the research to find a cure to breast cancer.
