Gentle but provocative, Swedish Newcomer Majken‘s new single ‘Lovely Daughter’ documents love and powerlessness through hushed vocals and lo-fi sounds. The track is taken from her upcoming debut album, which is set for release this Autumn via Kollektivet Records.
Majken was born in the southern Swedish coastal town of Karlskrona and has been writing music since the age of 14. The songs on her upcoming debut album explore themes of teenage desire, uncertainty and mental health – experienced from both sides. The album was recorded at her home in Malmo with Damon Tutunjian (Mew, Swirlies), who allowed her to use his collection of 70’s synthesisers and effects, helping Majken to shape her gentle, captivating sounds.
Debut single ‘Lovely Daughter’ is a tentative and pretty offering from the Swedish newcomer, and we look forward to hearing more from her in the near future. Listen to the single below and follow Majken on Facebook for more updates.
