Those of you who aren’t living in Finland probably have no idea who Astrid Swan is, and that’s okay, though sad in the long run. The track below comes from her 5th album, Astrid4, and this is one of the many great moments you’ll find. Her voice is quite strong, which is probably what first attracted me to the singer’s work, but the accompaniment here is what completely sold me. While the stile is different, incorporating various horns and woodwinds provides listeners with something that’s rare in pop music…a classical touch that’s creative and not forced. You can pick up Astrid4 from Soliti Music now.
