I was listening to BBC Radio 1 when I was working from home the other day. These days I’m finding that I am listening more and more to BBC 6Music instead, but I’m very pleased I happened to have it on, as I’ve found a new musician that I’m liking more and more as each day passes.
Fearne Cotton played a song by Loney Dear, which is the pseudonym of a Swedish artist called Emil Svanängena. The song was called Loney Blues. Check out the video here:
I liked the song so much that I went a bought a copy of the album Hall Music straight away.
I think it’s a really fantastic album and I recommend it thoroughly. I reminds me a lots of Bon Iver’s album from 2011, which is no bad thing as that was my favourite album of the year.
I don’t think it will be too long before I find myself getting hold of Loney Dear’s previous albums as well.
