More up-tempo, "classically pop" and straight to the point, "Mission Impossible" still dwells in the same landscape as the tracks from her first, more searching and experimental, release. A landscape where synths are ethereal, stories are strong and hearts are broken.
- "It's a song about dreadful indecisiveness. About a spring of going back and forth, only to realize that as autumn comes you're still in the same place.", Borg says. "I find my stories to find energy in that clash of sweet and dreadful, and I think it reflects on the sound."
After having spent a few years in different musical collaborations, lending her voice to acts as different as The Honeydrips and Olov Antonsson, Amanda Ingeborg Runestam sneak launched her solo project in December '19 with the "Honest and Cool" EP.
BORG, ”fortress” in Swedish, is a place for her uncompromising expression within the realm of pop. It's where she tells her stories of love and anxieties. Her voice, a natural force emanating from the deep, dark forests of Sweden, is supported by delicate, neon-like, soundscapes of arpeggiated synths, pads and precise percussion.
