”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. ”

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 music 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 the duo has since then toured intensively in Sweden and Europe. Go to TOUR for updates on live shows.

April 2020, the duo released their second album EVERY LITTLE WHISPER TURNS INTO A ROAR, highly acclaimed by the critics. In 2020/2021 Långbacka/Bådagård composed the musical score for Swedish movie GLACIÄR, the first film by world famous Swedish author Camilla Läckberg and director Baker Karim. The movie premiered in April 2021 on movie theaters and streaming platform Viaplay, and the soundtrack was released as the duo’s third album.

In 2022 the duo followed up their latest album releases with the EVERY LITTLE WHISPER TOUR. In 2023 the duo composed the original music score for feature documentary BLOOD, INK AND SOCKS (Johan Ribe) and for screenplay/dance performance ORIGINAL GODS – Fåglarnas skolgård (Teater 3). In April 2024 they will release their new studio album GROWING UP GROWING DOWN, followed by a tour.
