I was all “wow”, “yeaahh” and “greeeat” when Steget first album came out. So I was quite excited when I saw “Till slut”, their new release, was ready.

To sum it up, let’s say the record sounds “Swedish”. Very. Not only because the lyrics are in Swedish. It is more the nostalgia in Matilda Sjöström’s sweet voice that strikes me. And the darkness underneath the sweet piano of this duo.

Sure, I wish there would be in the track listing more immediate catchy “pop” tunes such as “Bakom ryggen” than too-calm-for-my-tastes ballads (in this respect, I am not really into songs like “Aldrig tillbaks” or “Som om”). But all in all, this is music with cachet an the whole trip deserves a careful listen.
