Swedish folk rock pioneers Garmarna are now streaming their upcoming full-length, ‘Förbundet,’ in its entirety ahead of tomorrow’s release! The record can be heard in full at THIS LOCATION [embedded below].
Garmarna comments: “We are extremely happy to finally present ‘Förbundet!’ Excited to bring the whole experience to the world. Proud to level up our game after so many years together. It’s now in your hands so use it well and let us know what you think!”
The visionary folk sounds of Sweden’s Garmarna marry the past to the present on their captivating new album ‘Förbundet.’ ‘Förbundet’ (Swedish for connected) is an especially apt title as their songs, inspired by traditional Swedish folk music and Scandinavian ballads, are played by acoustic instruments but accented by a flourish of modern electronics (beats, loops and samples). The album, led by Emma Härdelin’s spellbinding vocals and aided by the rich production of Christopher Juul (HEILUNG), see the Grammis (Swedish Grammy) winning group operating at the heights of their powers. Garmarna has persevered for nigh on four decades now, and ‘Förbundet’ further secures their legacy as one of the worldwide leaders of traditional Scandinavian folk music.
‘Förbundet’ is due on November 6 and can be pre-ordered HERE.
