“It is a beautifully sad song that hovers expertly on the edge of desolation and sorrow while reminiscing on a long struggle.” (A Long Time Running) Ja Ja Ja “It’s a frail song seeking hope through gentle electronic sounds. There’s darkness, but not despair.” “Further proof, if ever it were needed, of the importance of music, both created and consumed, the new record from Astrid Swan is a strikingly personal piece of work armed with the ability to make an impact on the listener, wherever they might be coming from” (A Long Time Running) Gold Flake Paint Astrid Swan has one of Finland’s most powerful voices ” Austin Town Hall “This is the sad and beautiful new single from Astrid Swan”. (A Long Time Running) SWIT “The first time I heard this I was totally mesmerised by its intensity and power. To be able to put into words such emotion of feeling, with such a brutal clarity, is fairly extraordinary.” Nordic Music Review

Astrid Swan: From The Bed and Beyond (Soliti 059)

It is an album about the aftermath of breast cancer. It is about the body; giving birth, becoming a mother, then becoming a patient – becoming a physical body that is defined by medicine, controlled and intervened, unknown and simultaneously more feeling than ever. It’s a pop record about loss, death, grief and hope.
