‘Sad Blue Mountain’

A Stockholm native, 22 year old Emilie Lund studies theatre by day and takes night-time strolls through the vibrant city to inspire her songs, which gravitate around such winsome desires as “looking for love and long lost childhood friends”. But while the bustle and pulse of the city waken her muse, it’s the remote Swedish countryside that serves as a refuge for her writing, a connection she owes to growing up in a house “practically inside a forest”. Emilie namechecks Nick Drake and CocoRosie as core inspirations, and their influences may be felt to peek out a little in the piano confessions of ‘Sad Blue Mountain’. The dusky harmonicas evoke a gleam of Mazzy Star, but Emilie’s heartstring vocals are cut-grass fresh, far sharper then Hope Sandoval’s dreamy tones. A wonderfully honest number, heartfelt and burning with her discerning, questing voice, ‘Sad Blue Mountain’ is taken from her debut self-titled EP, currently available here as a free MP3/OGG download. If this track is anything to go by, she’s one to keep an eye on. MP3 after the jump.
