Here’s a new song that simultaneously warms you up and gives you chills—a perfect complement to the coming post-Hercules weather. Solander’s second single from their upcoming album, Monochromatic Memories, is a sweeping track that alternates between a sense of motion and suspense, combining rolling percussion and guitar work with a haunting cello. The lyrics, on the other hand, take you through loss and feeling lost, and are clearly meant for wintertime (“The road to your house looks snowy and white”).
The pop/folk/indie Swedish duo, comprised of Fredrik Karlsson on vocals and guitar and Anja Linna on synth and cello, has been active since 2009, and Monochromatic Memories will be their third full-length release. “The Woods Are Gone” follows the release of the album’s first single, “All Opportunities,” available on Spotify (and in today’s mix of the day!). So far, it seems like this album was made for brisk mornings and snowy nights, so keep your eyes peeled until the album’s release on Feb. 3.
