Like A Bonfire

Sofia Talvik - Like a Bonfire demo

I’m still recording demos for the new album in my Berlin bedroom recording studio. This is a short song that will need some work in the production stage later on. If you want to support independent music and help me out making this new album feel free to hit the donate button on the top of this post. You can decide for yourself if you think this video and song is worth as much as a coffee at Starbucks, or a gym card or maybe even more. You can also decide your own contribution. Anything will help me get to the finished product 🙂

Summer sale

Need a nice soundtrack to your summer vacation? Well isn’t this your lucky day!

Inspired by Mr Selfridge himself (but I guess everyone is doing it nowadays…) I decided to put on summer sale so that you can stock up on all the albums you haven’t already got.

Just go to the shop page music.sofiatalvik.com and browse through the albums, you can listen to them before you decide. Then use the code “SUMMER14” at check-out and – voila! you just saved yourself a whole lotta money that you can now spend on ice-cream!

“In der gemĂĽtlichen Kneipe bleiben fĂĽr einige Minuten die Uhren stehen und selbst die dumpfen Beats einer Abi-Feier nebenan scheinen demĂĽtig zu verebben, als die Sängerin die Ballade „Min Ros, Min Lilja“ intoniert. Wunderwunderschön.”

New album out soon!

Folk by Sofia Talvik

I’m so happy to announce that I will be releasing an extended EP in March! Pre-orders are up now!

Folk by Sofia Talvik
Folk by Sofia Talvik

In Swedish ”folk music” means ”traditional music”. If you play ”folk” in Sweden, you are most likely a whiz at the key-harp or the violin. For many years I’ve been a part of the folk scene, in the non traditional sense, and finally I thought I’d try to combine the two in a new way. 

These are 6 old traditional Swedish folk songs in a more modern clothing. Bringing in musicians from Germany as well as Sweden, mixing it up with my own sound and my own visions, I combined the beauty of the old with the beauty of the new. The result is this extended EP – ”Folk”. 

The name rings true in both Swedish and English, stating the new and the traditional genre but also brings in the meaning of the Swedish word which is ”people”. This is an album for the people. I hope you like it!

Pre-order the album here!
