Andreas Mattsson began his musical career in the legendary Swedish indie band Popsicle in the early nineties and has ever since distinguished himself as one of the country’s most eminent melody makers.
This fall on October 14th, his third studio album released in his own name, ”Solnedgången”, an album that came to life in Austin, Texas.
”I was there to evaluate a future scholarship, in a place called House of Songs. Two weeks in the spring and for two weeks in the fall of 2014. Met almost no one, read, played guitar, wrote, played piano, ate, was homesick, drank. Never been so productive in my life. 17 songs in 28 days. In Swedish.”
These 17 songs became ”Solnedgången”, a collection of delicately crafted by a true grandmaster on the pop subject.
