Sofia Talvik – The Garden
Swedish folk singer Sofia Talvik has a bell-like voice that demands your ears. The Garden is from Sofia’s January 2012 long-player, The Owls Are Not What They Seem. The deep upright bass adds a striking undertone to this folk-pop gem, with Sofia’s voice striking forward to reveal the message. Throughout The Owls Are Not What They Seem there is a decidedly different feel to these 12 tracks, from the pop flavored (Garden) to the country tinged (If I Had A Man) to the full on folk feel (Circle Of Friends), Sofia Talvik experiments with a host of styles. Each track has a different sound, and yet is tied together with Sofia’s vocal which makes this diverse collection at once homogeneous and accessible.
Sofia Talvik has just released (by the time you read this) an EP’s worth of traditional Swedish folk-songs, simply titled Folk. You can find more information on Sofia Talvik by visiting her very complete web site or purchase a host of EP and LP titles, including the aforementioned Owls and Folk from her bandcamp.com site.
