1 - BOLANDER, KRISTOFFER - WHAT NEVER WAS WILL ALWAYS BE - (CD) 
TAPETE


"What Never Was Will Always Be" offers compelling evidence of his accession to the European elite of alternative songwriters.Moving beyond the typical spectrum of alternative folk as heard on Bolander's 2015 debut "I Forgive Nothing", the sophomore album represents a significant evolution in sound. The wonderfully delicate, high-pitched voice of the Swedish singer is framed beautifully by his excellent band, at times quietly focussed, at others ramping up distorted guitars and visceral drums. But what really makes the atmosphere of "What Never Was Will Always Be" unique is the introduction of electronic elements. From gentle synth pads, reminiscent of Brian Eno soundscapes, to dry, pulsating electro drums, whilst flashes of arpeggiator illuminate the elegantly conceived musical thicket.The songs range from the epic uber-hit "Cities" to danceable synth pop numbers like "Animals" and classic folk tunes such as "True Romance" which features Kristoffer Bolander's voice accompanied only by an acoustic guitar. The album is a panoply of small worlds, every song occupying its own sonic dimension, produced to perfection. Add in Bolander's unique lyrical qualities and an extraordinary mood develops, his words falling like mantras from the future, with tales of lost cities and life-changing romances.
