Gothenburg-based alt-pop artist Sarah Klang shares ‘Endless Sadness (Acoustic)’ and announces new UK tour-dates
Following her sold-out London debut at The Lexington in December 2019, Gothenburg alt-pop artist and the self-confessed “saddest girl in Sweden” Sarah Klang is sharing an acoustic take on her single ‘Endless Sadness’ and announcing the rescheduled dates for her upcoming UK tour, including a headline show at London’s Bush Hall on November 18th.
The follow-up to her chart-topping, Swedish Grammy winning debut ‘Love In The Milky Way’, Sarah’s new LP ‘Creamy Blue’ – from which ‘Endless Sadness’ is originally taken – is out now.
The record was nominated for both the ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Alternative Pop’ categories of the 2020 Swedish Grammys, as well as the ‘European album of the year’ IMPALA award.
Written and produced in collaboration with Kevin Andersson, ‘Creamy Blue’ is an ode to 21st century relationships – be they platonic or romantic – that deals in an enthralling vintage pop sound delivered with a sugar-coated Scandi charm and healthy dose of self-deprecation.
Complete with grandiose string sections, bleeding heart piano, dreamy Americana-tinged guitars and Sarah’s powerful hair-raising vocals, it deals in a sublime reverb-soaked melancholia that’s achingly beautiful yet gloriously infectious and ironically uplifting at times.
The album skirting a very fine line between the deadly serious and the self-satirising.
Whilst working as a waitress in her father’s bar, a few years back Sarah made the decision to turn her hand to writing her own songs. Using a love of good old-fashioned ballads as her starting point, the result was something that intertwines classic 60s/70s pop, Americana and country
to mesmerising effect.
In next to no time she’d be playing to ever-growing crowds at underground venues as she worked on her debut album in the background – innocently unaware of what was to follow: sold-out
dates around Scandinavia and mainland Europe, an arena tour with First Aid Kit and a #1 Grammy-winning album in ‘Love In The Milky Way’.
With the follow-up ‘Creamy Blue’ now out in the world and more UK dates now announced–after her London debut at The Lexington in December was packed to the rafters with adoring fans–it’s clear we’ll all be hearing a lot more of Klang in 2020.
