Ghost of a Chance: A New Paradigm for Pop Music Success?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
I've been in Europe since early August as a Fulbright Scholar. Most of that time has been in the beautiful city of Graz, which is in southeast Austria. I am teaching a course at the Jazz Institute at the Kunstuniversität Graz (Graz University of the Arts). As part of this work, I was invited by a former Fulbright recipient, Professor Elisabeth Strempfl, to give a presentation at the Dreihacken Musik Gymnasium, which is a high school that has a strong focus on music instruction. I've given these types of presentations many times, but I was looking forward to hearing the questions from this group of young Austrian music students. The students were wonderful -- attentive, respectful, with lots of great questions, questions that were quite similar to the ones I get in the U.S.A. "Should I go into music? What careers are there in music? How does one make it in music?" The truth is that no one can answer those questions authoritatively, but it did get me thinking about career strategies a ...

Coachella 2012: Sweden's First Aid Kit explores American roots music
LATimes - almost 5 years
Sweden's sister duo First Aid Kit sings of Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons and June and Johnny Cash on its sophomore album, "The Lion's Roar," constructing a musical love letter to American roots music. If not quite outsiders, the harmonizing pair weren't the most likely young'uns to dream of wide-open, acoustic landscapes. After all, there wasn't, said Klara and Johanna Söderberg, much of a folk music scene among Stockholm's teenage set.  First Aid Kit is one of the few acts playing the multi-weekend Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., that wouldn't feel out of place at the country-focused Stagecoach, which is set for the post-Coachella weekend of April 27-29. Yet Klara and Johanna discovered the twangy history of American pop from the Coachella set, namely Conor Oberst's frantic and rootsy Bright Eyes project.   "He was singing his heart out about things that really mattered to him," said Klara, 19. She said Obsert connected the 12-year-old version of herse ...

While both Karin and Olof are hesitant to give interviews, Karin takes part in them more frequently than her brother. On the occasions they do consent to interviews, they often stick to topics concerning their music, influences and public image, avoiding talking about their personal lives.

    More Details Hide Details One of these tracks, "No Face", appeared in demo form on the 2012 compilation album We Are the Works in Progress, organised by Blonde Redhead to benefit victims of the 2011 Japanese tsunami.
    Contrary to a statement from the film's director, Andersson did not make a cameo appearance in the 2011 film Red Riding Hood.
    More Details Hide Details However, the soundtrack features the exclusive track "The Wolf", which Andersson co-wrote with her band members, as well as "Keep the Streets Empty for Me". "The Wolf" was also featured in Ubisoft's Far Cry Primal announcement trailer, as well as during the game's final mission.
  • 2010
    Age 34
    Andersson performed as Fever Ray at the 2010 Coachella Festival and received positive reviews.
    More Details Hide Details In September of the same year, she performed at Electric Picnic in Ireland and at Bestival in England.
  • 2009
    Age 33
    In 2009, Andersson composed the soundtrack to Dirty Diaries, a collection of feminist pornographic short films.
    More Details Hide Details In a review of the collection, Swedish newspaper Smålandsposten described the soundtrack as appropriate to the film, though repetitive.
    While The Knife was on hiatus, Andersson released her self-titled solo debut album Fever Ray digitally on 12 January 2009 and physically on 18 March 2009 via Rabid Records, preceded by its lead single "If I Had a Heart", released digitally on 15 December 2008.
    More Details Hide Details The song was later used in the 31 July 2011 episode of American television series Breaking Bad, as well as becoming the main title music for the Canadian-Irish historical drama television series Vikings, which premiered on 3 March 2013. The song was also used in Season 3, Episode 3 of the Australian women's prison drama Wentworth.
    Andersson released her debut solo album under the name Fever Ray in 2009.
    More Details Hide Details Her vocal style is notable for both shrill and deep tones, and also the use of multitracked vocals, with different uses of pitch-shifting technology on each track, creating an intricate and mysterious effect. Visually, Andersson employs the use of masks, face and body paint, intricate costumes, and other theatrical elements in photo shoots, videos and live performances, during which she often performs behind a gauze screen that partially obscures her from view.
