This Friday I decided to take a walk back into Danish music history. Actually, a combination of Swedish and Danish.
Lisa Ekdahl is one of my all time favorite Swedish performers and I have posted her Bossa Nova inspired compilation previously. In mid nineties, she collaborated with the very talented Danish artist, Lars H.U.G and was featured as a guest performer on his album in 1996. Together they created a wonderful melancholic duet. Lisa's voice holds a certain feeling of nostalgia and fragility and completes his sensitive vocals, creating an exquisite chemistry. Furthermore, I completely love the cover of the single. The image seem so simple, yet feels so evocative and emotionally charged.
"Backwards" is to this day one of my favorite love songs, where the jazz inspired harmonies and poetic lyrics feel ever so recognizable and honest.
