Loney, Noir | Loney, Dear
Emil Svanängen，aka Loney, Dear is a Swedish indie song-writer. “Loney, Noir” which is the self-release from 2005 has been reissued by a label from Seattle, Sub Pop. It is of the quality of Chamber Pop which is juicy and chipper. Those acoustic folk songs are not only breezy, but they are also embellished by vivid but harmonious instruments, namely clarinet, flute, horn, or even human clapping hands and whistling which are functioning as the cream being added to the cake layer by layer. And meanwhile the adornment doesn’t mask the cheerful high-pitched vocal which is the most outstanding and unique element of the album. If you are into the usual Swedish Indie Pop, or the earlier stage of Belle and Sebastian,then you will probably love this “Loney, Noir” which nonetheless hits off at more upbeat tempo and at some points are being quirky, like the following single “I am John”, which has the music video made of charcoal drawing directed by Andreas Nilsson.
