Over six albums Emil Svanängen's consistency in effortless folk-pop radar terms has picked up a few stray objects and been jolted off course. This first cut from October's latest LP, Hall Music, sees him stick somewhere akin to what he does best, using his quavering vocal to consider where his life's optimum has gone. It sounds both fragile and grand, Svanängen's directness layered on with chamber strings, muted horns, tubular bells and synths arpeggiating above and buzzing underneath. Even as the production consumes the air somehow he remains pleadingly introspective.
