BlackieBlueBird are back with their third album “Grace & Gravity” leveraging the dreamy romanticism by adding drums to their soundscapes, while maintaining the melancholy of their first works..
BlackieBlueBird are the vocalist Heidi Lindahl and the composer Nils Lassen; together they create delicate torch songs of reverb and echo that captivate the listener with resonating guitars, wailing harmonicas, maudlin mandolins and a choir of lonely mermaids that sporadically embraces Heidi’s golden voice. The echoes of love and longing, hellos and deceiving goodbyes live within her unique and clear vibrato.
BlackieBlueBird are now back with their third album “Grace & Gravity” leveraging the dreamy romanticism by adding drums to their soundscapes, while maintaining the melancholy of their first works. The renowned Danish drummer Tomas Ortved (Sort Sol) is the man behind the kit.
Lead by the delicate and enchanting voice of Heidi Lindahl “Grace & Gravity” comprises 10 songs of desire, love, life, and losses written by the experienced composer Nils Lassen.
The duo received great reviews worldwide for their albums “Ghost River” and ‘Goodbye in July, where their sound has been compared to Nick Cave’s “Murder Ballads” and Enya.
All songs are written and produced by Nils Lassen. The album is a cooperation among T&E Records and Aenaos Records. “Grace & Gravity” was released as a download on 22nd of September 2023.

The Swedish Indie band And the Broken (Tobias, Conny and Måns of Emerald Park plus Linus Lindvall and Johan Hellsten) just released their next single in a series of outputs heading towards the first full-length album. The final chapter, if you will, in the first era of AND THE BROKEN. More guitars, heavier, harder, angrier and more frustration.
“Puttin’ Out Fires” is the sixth and final release in the “Panther”-series. The final chapter, if you will, in the first era of And The Broken. The previous releases have flirted with both Byrdsian power-pop and 80’s post-punk. “Puttin’ Out Fires” moves towards late 90’s Blur via Scary Monsters-era Bowie; someone thought that frontman Tobias sounded like the singer of Xiu Xiu. The riffing from guitarists Johan and Linus draw on equal proportions of Robert Fripp and Keith Richards. Unrestricted noise making-galore. Loads of energy, frustration and, as always sugar coated melodies and angelic vocal arrangements.
Måns Katsler: drums; harmony vocals
Conny Fridh: electric bass guitar; harmony vocals
Linus Lindvall: electric 6-string and baritone guitar; harmony vocals
Johan Hellsten: electric 6 and 12-string guitar
Tobias Borelius: lead vocals
EMERALD PARK is a Swedish indie pop band that has been making waves in the indie scene since 2004. Their new single, “Night Away” shows off their signature sound: indie pop with a hint of rock and a touch of synth.
Night Away is the sophomore single from the upcoming album “Lovers in Reverse”. As the first single “Little Things” the song focuses on the electronic, quite slow beat. Working on the song Emerald Park called it “sedated dance”.
“Night Away” brings us back to the eighties with the synth beat and the steady bass.
