LINA TULLGREN “OLDER”
Lina Tullgren, the latest Captured Tracks’ signee, is a Maine born songwriter with an eye and an ear for darkness. And the light. Sometimes it’s quiet, but sometimes it’s loud. When you grow up in the trenches of classical music and then, down the line, you learn about traditional fiddle music and old work songs, you can get burnt out on everything after a while. So, then you buy an electric guitar and start to write songs. If you aren’t trying to be anything or anyone in particular; the songs that result are in their own way, raw, sincere and unique.
“Fall”, the second single from Esh, premiered today. The single highlights Esh’s stunning vocals, as its perfectly accompanied by subtle, yet engaging synth melodies throughout. The song “officially marks ESH as a future star,” states Press Play Ok. “It’s an utterly endearing slice of blissful electronic pop, taking in Givaty’s malleable vocal and merging it beautifully with a sort of house-lite, after-hours beat.” A singer-songwriter and world traveler, Esh has drawn from different sounds and experiences throughout her journey, to inspire her self-titled EP, Esh.

The Legends, Johan Angergård told Brooklyn Vegan, “This is the first cover I’ve ever recorded. I really like the track, but I wanted to hear what would come out of it if it was presented in a completely different setting. I read in an interview with Chainsmokers that they wanted to make it super authentic. My take is the complete opposite. I love the combination of something that sounds fragile and naked and artificial at the same time. That’s where I took ‘Roses.’”

From me to you on Father’s Day, I give you…’My Father.’ And to my actual father….Dad, I am grateful for all the time you spent with me when I was growing up.
