A Lanky Swede
With his band The Perishers Ola Klüft tires of the spotlight, the big stadiums and expensive musical productions. When he comes back after some years of silence, he does it in his own way: by myself. Solo project “A Lanky Swede “, is a deliberate counterpoint to the grandeur and inflated. A courageous journey back to the cellar rooms where it all began. After ten years together, The Perishers took a well deserved break. Ola Klüft followed love and got a little lost in the big city of Vancouver, Canada. Here, after many long walks in Stanley Park’s forest, A Lanky Swede began to take shape.
The disc “Soon, soon, soon …” is a tribute to the simple, raw and unadorned beauty. It is mostly filmed in Ola’s own cellar, at night when the city’s noise died away for the day. The result is a thoughtful and honest album about the life-long love, homesickness and the difficult art of following your heart. It’s simply great music made by a single available man.

The album “Soon, Soon, Soon …” released May 22.
