We are really glad to announce the release of the 2nd album “Summer Is Like A Swallow” by the Swedish artist Sara Forslund on November 9th on KAIP label (Sweden). It will be available on Vinyl & Digital.
Sara Forslund released her debut album “Water became wild” on the Dutch label Volkoren in 2015 with a lot of positive feedbacks from Medias. The new album “Summer is like a Swallow” is an haunting and exquisite Indie Folk music recording, it may recall the works of artists like Nick Drake or Karen Dalton with a personal touch. The album has been co-produced by studio legend John Wood who has worked with artists such as Nick Drake, Pink Floyd, Nico, Fairport convention, John Martyn, James Booker and many more.
“With her new album “Summer is Like a Swallow” Sara has maintained her unique blend of deceptive simplicity and intimacy, whilst this time augmenting album with contributions from both acoustic and electronic parts. The ten songs on this, her second solo confirm her individual style and talents.” John Wood
Sara Forslund (1981) was born in a small village called Borgvattnet in the northern part of Sweden. Borgvattnet is known for its haunted vicarage. At that time, Sara’s father Tore Forslund was the local priest and was nicknamed `The ghost priest ́ after offering to relieve the village of its ghosts that were said to reside in the old vicarage…. As a young girl Forslund would often sing religious hymns together with her family on the streets of Sweden.
