Bjorn Rydhog – Let’s Not Get Old (Spotify)

Categories: Audio, Blogwave, The Latest|Tags: , , , , |

“Very fresh release from Bjorn Rydhog with positive mood. The sweedish artist has a pleasant Indie sound with some retro taste, which bring nostalgic memories in our minds. Also clear and well-built "Let's Not Get Old" can surely attract our attention.”

Bjorn Rydhog (swe) releases the single “Let’s Not Get Old”, from his upcoming third EP. Together with the producer Johan Sigerud (JRSS), Bjorn Rydhog continues to take his melodic indie pop further into an electronic and beat-based realm. Melancholic progressions are blended with a modern retro sound inspired by Dua Lipa and The Radio Dept. A logical continuation of their previous collaboration, the singles ‘Just to Be with You’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Alone’ which were picked up by the Swedish radio.

"The single ‘Let’s Not Get Old’, has a celebratory and hopeful feel. This time the music goes even deeper, trying to express the beauty and love that’s all around. Music that’s perfect for listening alone under the starlit sky, as well as accompanying the warm and sweaty post-pandemic party nights. A musical companion guiding us over troubled water.

“There are moments we feel boredom and loneliness in a totally decaying world. This is the right time to pick some fine music and give ourselves a breath of hope. Bjorn Rydhog is here to offer his best work for this purpose. Don't miss his new single "I Don't Wanna Be Alone".”

Together with producer Johan Sigerud (JRSS) and co-writer Olof Gråhamn, Bjorn Rydhog continues to take his melodic indie pop into an electronic and beat-based realm. Melancholic progressions are blended with a modern retro sound inspired by M83 and The Weeknd. A logical continuation of their previous collaboration, the single ‘Just to Be with You’, which was released in 2020 and was picked up by Swedish radio.

"The single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Alone’ shows an electronic direction I’m currently exploring. The tracks of the song were recorded separately at our different homes. I guess the creation process, as well as the theme of the song, reflect the distant and lonely, but also creative times we currently live in”.

Bjorn Rydhog – Escape (Spotify)

“Music Bjorn Rydhog possesses a surprising feature - it can heal the tech, which deluded in an inconspicuous interpretation of uselessness. Listen to his new single Escape. Find yourself and calm down.”

“Музыка Bjorn Rydhog обладает удивительной особенностью - она может исцелять тех, кто заблудился в непроглядном тумане безысходности. Послушайте его новый сингл Escape. Найдите своё и успокойтесь.”

Artist shared with us few words behind this song:

"Escape" was the first song I crafted back home in Malmö after five inspiring months in India together with my girlfriend. One of the insights that really hit me on the journey, was how unknowingly attached to my thoughts and culture I had been, and in some ways, still am. To get away from unnecessary attachments does take some time and isn’t easy. But still that’s my mission and the song Escape an expression of that desire.

Few words about your musical background and career?

Bjorn Rydhog:
I started to write songs when I was 7 years old. Now I'm a multi-instrumentalist playing most instruments on my records, which have gained a lot of positive attention from many music blogs and been played extensively on the Swedish and international radio.

Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Bjorn Rydhog:
As a boy I loved cheesy ballads, song compilations from the 1960s and the Eurovision Song Contest. The soundtrack of my childhood was made up of songs like Johnny Logan 'Hold me now', Percy Sledge 'When a man loves a woman' and Steve Wonder 'I just called to say I love you'. The Beatles 'the Blue Album' also made a long lasting impression.

Bjorn Rydhog – Just to Be with You (Spotify)

Categories: Audio, Electronica, The Latest|Tags: , , |

Unlike Rydhog's previous recordings, ’Just to Be with You’ has been recorded in his own basement together with the producer Johan Sigerud. Music and lyrics have been co-created with Olof Gråhamn.

This time the sound is more modern and electronic, but still melodious indie pop at its best. ’Just to Be with You’ could be the perfect soundtrack to summer evenings with friends. Inspiration has been drawn from M83, Nick Drake and Bon Iver, among others.

“The single ‘Just to Be with You’ differs in so many ways from my previous acoustic songs. The creative process has been an exciting exploration and discovery of the music program Logic and the the great opportunities of a home studio setting, with just a computer, some synths and a skilled producer.”

The song ‘Give Me Sunshine’ is the first single from the recently released EP of Bjorn Rydhog. It’s a hopeful summer tune as Bjorn Rydhog shared with us: “summer has spiritual undertones and it also figures as a central theme in some of the most beautiful pop songs I know.” The music video was shot in the city park of Malmö, Slottsparken. It’s the first music video he’ve ever made and I opted for a lo-fi production created with a beginner’s mind. It’s also a tribute to his beautiful hometown and was filmed by Emil Ask. A beatiful well produced indie pop to capture your summer moments.

Bjorn Rydhog, Moa McAllister – Into Your Heart (Spotify)

Bjorn Rydhog, Moa McAllister – Into Your Heart

Into your heard is a warm vocal & guitar driving track with chill atmosphere, well performed and with clarity in sound.
Music that easy will become your new lovely summer tune through his emotive positive outlook and ethereal voice of Bjorn.

Artist said about this song:
In the beginning of the summer 2019, I wrote an SMS to my friend Olof Gråhamn and asked if he wanted to create a summer hit. He agreed and we met up at the Ribersborg beach, in Malmö. We sat on the grass, talking about what kind of mood and themes we wanted to convey. I picked up the guitar and began strumming the chords that still make the backbone of the recorded song. The rest just flowed naturally. Two beers and some sunshine later the song was done. Later, during the recording process in the legendary Tambourine Studios, it turned out that both Olof and I had considered suggesting to let Olof’s girlfriend Moa McAllister (guitarist and vocalist of the band Peach Baby) sing the chorus part together with me. Moa turned up just before we had to close up shop for the day, and we had just enough time to lay down the tracks. This was the first time I met Moa, and her tender voice turned out to be perfect for the song. On this track, as well as on the others, my producer Måns Wikenmo played the drums, bass and guitar. I sang, played the guitar, violin and keys myself. Ellen Pettersson played the trumpet and the music video to the song was co-created intuitively at Olof’s apartment and can be seen here

Few words about the artist:
Bjorn Rydhog is a Swedish multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter from Malmö. After many years of writers block, he finally found a creative spark through playing the guitar to a poem by Dag Hammarskjold. This resulted in twelve new songs, recorded in the legendary Tambourine Studios with the producer Måns Wikenmo. The EP “There’s a light in everything” was released in late 2018 followed by a couple of more singles.
