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 easiest way to show what you can do is to do it on your own”
Greta Magnusson Grossman
When you judge people, take a step back and think what you can really say about your own work. And when you’re being judged, remember that at least you have shown what you can do. It’s so easy to discard others hard work. But in the end, could you do it better?
About Oh Laura and Frida Öhrn:
Oh Laura, formerly known as Laura, is a Swedish indie pop group from Stockholm. The band’s name comes from one of the heroines of the television series Twin Peaks, Laura Palmer. The group came into existence as a project of 2 friends from school, Jocke and Jorgen. They were both born and raised in Sweden, they’re both very talented musicians and composers. Jocke mainly composes music, Jorgen writes most of the lyrics. They met Frida when Jocke was on the concert with his sister. Frida’s voice made on him such an unusual impression that he immediately proposed her a cooperation. Not much later Frida called her 2 friends, a bassist, Rikard and a drummer, Magnus and that’s how Oh Laura was born! Oh Laura is also known from having one of their wonderful songs “Release me” in a Saab commercial.
Summer is here!! And so is my new summer single “Strawberries on my tongue”. This first week all of you who have twitter gets the new single for free before everyone else, with just one tweet. When you add your twitter name and password here, you get a download link to the single, and your twitter account automatically sends out a message on your twitter flow that you downloaded the single. (no information of names and passwords is saved so don’t worry). This is the way you pay for the single, by simply telling your friends about it. Neat huh!
The single is mixed by renowned producer Magnus Frykberg and the B-side (YES! You get two versions of this baby) is a live recording with a guest performance from world musician Steafan Hannigan who has worked with Björk and Depeche Mode to mention a few.
Florida Music Festival
On saturday the 16th you’ll be able to see me live, and hear the summer single live as well at Florida Music Festival! I’m playing at “The Social” (downtown Orlando) 9pm. Be sure to come by and have a listen!
Today has been a lovely sunny day in Stockholm. I started it by having some breakfast at a local café with my guitarist who is also my neighbour. So what would be a better day than this to go to the studio to listen to Magnus Frykberg mixing my summer single?! It sounded great, but I already knew Magnus was brilliant so it was no surprise 🙂 Here’s a small preview from the studio. The single will be released before the summer so make sure you sign up to the newsletter (you’ll find it on the front page) for more news about release date.
