When some people reach nearly fifteen years into their career, stagnation or rot often begins to set in. Ideas become strained, repetition appears and some artists feel a little lost at sea as times and trends have changed around them. For Loney dear's Emil Svanängen, the opposite is true. On his upcoming seventh album, he has undergone a rebirth, a transition and had a profound artistic awakening in which he sees this as the beginning of something very new and very potent.
★★★★ 'An elegant, understated pop masterpiece.'
