”Succeeding in their aim to search for a new path must be considered a great deed. Incredibly impressive that they sound like no one else.
Kulturbloggen (Read it here)
”This is without doubt a music duo that really stands out. Experienced and versatile musicians that take off from folk music but dare to cross genre borders. In the melting pot where their music is created, a totally unique sound with a strong personal touch is formed.”
Länstidningen Östersund
”The width of the music is impressive. From an improvisation over a medieval hymn by Hildegard av Bingen, to arty pop songs that really stick.”
Upsala nya tidning
”The result is unique. No song on the album sounds like the other, but there is still a solid feeling that they’re all connected. ”
Lira Magazine

ABOUT:

Pop with a folk soul. Or folk with a pop soul, depending who’s listening. Långbacka/Bådagård are Swedish singers and multi-instrumentalists Maja Långbacka and Matilda Bådagård. Their debut album has been described as ”the soundtrack of a fairy tale” and ”as if Regina Spector had moved to the Scandinavian mountains and learned how to play the fiddle”. Or, simply, as pop music with a great portion of Swedish folk music.

Autumn 2018 Långbacka/Bådagård released WAKE US UP and toured in Sweden, Norway and Finland together with world music star Pekko Käppi from Finland and blues/folk singer Jörgen Sandvik from Norway. In spring 2019 they will tour in Sweden. Go to LIVE at the bottom of the page for dates and venues.
