Taking it all down a few notches tonight with a set by Swedish Folk/Indie Singer-Songwriter Amanda Bergman tonight. Recorded live at Motel Mozaique 2016 by Netherlands Radio network VPRO and broadcast by 3VOOR12-FM.
Bergman has been associated with several projects the past few years – and has also gone by a few different stage names; notably Hajen and Idiot Wind. Her current group effort is lead singer for the band Amason, but she has also launched a solo career, with her latest endeavor Docks, her debut album which came out in February of this year.
Even though she is billed as Folk/Indie, her voice has a haunting quality to it, and backed up by her band, she creates a soundscape of many layers – and being recorded in a cavernous Church only adds to the engaging, hypnotic quality to her work.
She’s currently on a tour of Scandinavia before heading to Europe later on this summer. Late last year she did a tour of the U.S. with Amason and opened for Of Monsters And Men at the Greek Theatre in L.A. by all accounts, the press and reception here were good and it’s hoped she comes back to the States at some point this year.
But for now, here is what Amanda Bergman and Amason were up to on April 9th.
Turn it up and enjoy.
