Our Lyrics

You might have noticed the new link in the menu. Yes, we’ve moved them here – the lyrics to our songs. 

Earlier you could find them on our separate site called Lyrisk. To us it became too much of a hassle to add lyrics to the site with it’s not so user friendly interface. Therefore some of the lyrics to our latest songs never got added. I even saw in the website statistics searches targeting lyrics I knew weren’t there **shame**. 

If there’s lyrics you’ve been missing you should have a look now since we’ve added the ones we found missing. One thing about the old site that I think some of you appreciated though was that sometimes you could find lyrics to songs that were not yet released. We’ll see how to go about that in the future.

Häggfestival – Dreams

This is one of those songs that you first record then learn how to play live. Trying to match the melody and rhythm guitar all at once. Earlier this year we played this song on the livekarusellen tour, only with an electric-guitar. This time it’s all acoustic and sounds even more scaled back. I think the song has a bit of nerve that comes out quiet beautifully in the video.

Häggfestival (Bird Cherry Festival)

In Sweden spring is magic. I imagine this isn’t unique for Sweden, but in fact for all countries in the same temperature zone. After a long and dark winter the light returns and with it comes all leaves, flowers and greenery. The world comes back to life again. Magic.

One of the early blossoms are Bird Cherry (hägg in Swedish) and we have them in abundance in our garden. I think we’ve talked about a Hägg Festival before (well, not on the blog obviously) just joking around.

Last weekend we had well over 20 degrees celsius and summer, which had as eager and starting to plan for our very own Häggfestival. This weekend we we’re determined, even with nearly freezing degrees, wind, a bit of rain and farming in the background. Oh, well, it’s never going to be perfect anyway!

I suppose I imagine it would be just us, Bird cherries, spring and music… Four ingedients we both happen to love. We still hope you will enjoy our Häggfestival 2016!

Passing The 50k Mark

Just recently we passed 50 000 views on our Youtube channel. It has been active since 2006 and I would say that we were considered early adopters, at least in Sweden. Not many bands had their own channel at that time.  Part of the situation was caused by the fact that you had to acquire a license from the copyright collecting societies for every site you’d like to upload your music to, if you were to follow the terms and agreements strictly.  The situation was a gray zone and therefore we worked slightly anonymous by uploading the videos from a user account named “holymolydoly”. The username is still stuck in our url, not very handy for branding, but there you have the story anyway. A lot has happened since then and today every musician use Youtube as their no1 video site, even uploading covers and everyone think it’s fine. You could say the outsider has become mainstream. Or maybe it’s all wrong to recall Youtube as an outsider, because before here was nothing.

The most viewed video from our channel is this indie style video of our song “I See You Now” with more then 17000 views.

Fairly popular is the video from the video installation week.

Song – Come Petrichor

Here is the new song “Come Petrichor”. I’ve written so much about it in my previous post that anything I put here will just feel like a repetition. It feels great that it’s finally finished! We’ve been working on it for quite some time. You remember the first glimpse you had in the video installation week and that’s kind of where it started to become a song. Have fun listening!
