Lo-fi beats and lush, longing vocals blend together on ‘The Singer’, the debut single from Cuntrie (aka Ebba Gustafsson Ågren). Ebba is best known for fronting Swedish duo Wy, but under her new moniker she’s exploring different, more personal themes.
Accompanied by a self-directed video, ‘The Singer’ sees Ebba open up to knowing more about herself, and her subject matter. Her intimate lyrics and clear vocal delivery sit comfortably over the visuals of her filming herself, singing in to a variation of mirrors.
Speaking about her new music as Cuntrie, Ebba explains: “A solo project allows me to write about things I never felt fit into what we’re doing with Wy, things like my childhood. I feel like I can experiment a lot more with the themes of the songs. “I’ve wanted to challenge myself in terms of producing and writing for a while now, and this is the result of that.”
We’re definitely on board with Ebba’s new sound. Listen to ‘The Singer’ below and follow Cuntrie on Facebook for more updates.
