The missing link between Abba and Stina Nordenstam? Life- affirming pop-euphoria, reactive chambermusic with a subtle cabaretmood... This is BRITAH with CLOUDS.
CLOUDS is the debut album of BRITAH. But behind the alter ego you find the multifaceted and wayward singer and composer Josefine Lindstrand. 2009 she released her critically acclaimed debut album, There Will Be Stars, who was awarded best Jazz in Sweden 2009, and she toured with her band in Europe, USA and China, making over 100 concerts.
She has recorded 2 records (Parades and Under Giant trees) and toured with danish electronicaband Efterklang. Also she has toured with swedish artists as Veronica Maggio and Maia Hirasawa and performed and recorded with american pianist Uri Caine and english pianist Django Bates.
The music on CLOUDS is produced, written and composed by BRITAH. It’s been recorded in Stockholm and Malmö by Petter Lindgård (DAMN!) and Christoffer Roth (Håkan Hellström).
On the track Make My Day Tomorrow BRITAH invited Kasper Eistrup from the danish rockband Kashmir to join in a duet. They sing together about an argument that ends up in a big fight.
With an intuitive musical lightness, CLOUDS moves between smooth pop and dramatic ballads. In the first single Heartbreaker, with its bittersweet refrain, Carol King is not far away. But when the refrain repeats and the band blossoms, BRITAH brings the listener back to the endless nordic landscape of hers and makes the music undoubtly her own.
