Young Swedish quartet slowly come to light

Written by 

Old soul. Classic soul. Neo-soul. Regardless of the title, if it has a soulful sound in the Nordic regions we’re eager to hear it, and our ears have been tuned in to Swedish band Ever Say Ever for a while. 

Lead by the enchanting vocals of Liselotte Östblom, Ever Say Ever are a new young quartet who play urban beats with neo-soul inspired grooves influenced by artists such as D'Angelo, Badu, Hendrix & Coltrane and Little Dragon amongst others. The band are experimenting with electric bass guitars, drums, and vocals, testing the limits of how far each instrument can be pressed to create something new, organic and yet still swings.

Have a listen to their latest upload which contains a medley of forthcoming tracks, and below a live performance of "Set In Stone" from 2013.

It’s still early days but we really like what we’ve heard so far.

    They were right to refresh it.

    A lick of paint, trendy exposed pipework, and the removal of most of the balcony has given the venue Fasching a more open spaced feel, and most importantly, the music room to breathe.

    For those who have never been to Fasching, it's often compared to London's Ronnie Scotts and it's Stockholm's main venue for live jazz and soul events. 

    The new look was at least a positive surprise on my arrival, while news of the cancellation of the band I'd come to see, Ever Say Ever, wasn't. 

However, the evening at Fasching would still have a soulful flavour but with a much shorter review from me!
