THE SWEDISH NEWCOMER'S DEBUT ALBUM IS SET FOR RELEASE THIS AUTUMN VIA KOLLEKTIVET RECRODS

'Lovely Daughter' - Soundcloud / Spotify
 
Majken was born in the southern Swedish coastal town of Karlskrona and has been writing songs since the age of 14. Scheduled for release this Autumn via Kollektivet Records, her debut album explores themes of teenage desire, uncertainly of the heart and mental health, experienced from both sides. The record was recorded at her home in Malmo with Damon Tutunjian (Mew, Swirlies), a kindred spirit who appreciates the strange magic of lo-fi recordings almost as much as she does. Tutunjian allowed her to raid his collection of 70’s synthesisers and effects, which helped to shape the sound of the record.
 
Debut single ‘Lovely Daughter’ is the oldest on the album and is about love and powerlessness. It was recorded through a built-in laptop mic using “Harp” - the sound that sounded least terrible in her sound library. “I just liked the softness of it together with the sad and sloppy guitar,” she says, “before I learnt to play it, all my early demos are drenched in that MIDI harp.”
