Sweden’s Many Voices Speak – aka Matilda Mård – has a very real gift in the way of slumbery whispers of lush dream pop.
Opening her 2018 account with new single ‘Necessaries’; it is indicative of Mård’s tender skill. Showcasing her charming, heartstrung indie-pop songs with a real knack for wry, emphatic storytelling, ‘Necessaries’ moves slowly, on a bed of rolling guitar’s and an undulating melody. Cloaked with an air of melancholy, subtle, drawn-out horns pepper the song, adding another layer to the wistful, dreamy fuzz and pulsating like heartbeat. This shifting mist of atmospheric delight is all capped by rich harmonies and Mård’s soft, sultry, breathy voice that drifts with a weightlessness. Delicate, dreamy and truly captivating, that balance between light and dark is, like ‘Necessaries’ in general, a thing of sheer beauty.
Tune in below. Hopefully we’re hearing more from Many Voices Speak very soon.
