Loney Dear "My Heart" Hall Music from Polyvinyl 2011
Listen to “My Heart” MP3
Loney Dear’s sixth album Hall Music, out in October, looks to be a more blissful effort than his 2009 Polyvinyl debut Dear John. The Stolkholm, Sweden native (aka Emil Svanängen) became internationally known as a do-it-yourself, home recording wonder creating five elegant, multi-layered albums of separation and yearning.
On the tranquilly orchestral first single “My Heart” Emil seems more vibrant. The track is replete with subtle layered bell chimes, strings and acoustic guitar strengthened and lighted by his sometimes soaring vocals.
Check out this live performance of the track along with the Göteborg Symphony.
