MANY VOICES SPEAK
HEAR FIRST TRACK ‘NECESSARIES’
DEBUT ALBUM ‘TINK TOWN’ OUT ON 31 AUGUST ON STRANGERS CANDY
Swedish artsit Many Voices Speak has announced the release of her debut album ‘Tink Town’ on 31 August via Strangers Candy.
“‘Necessaries’ is about the progress and crisis you find yourself in when your certainties weaken or even withdraw. It reflects my own attempts to replace cynicism with knowledge and humility for the conditions of life”, she says about the first single taken from the album, which premiered on Stereogum.
Featuring the dreamy singing and songwriting of Matilda Mård, Many Voices Speak was born out of Mård’s move from Stockholm to the smaller Swedish industrial town of Borlänge. Less distraction gave way to creative rejuvenation and a revitalized approach to music.
Mård found liberation in one of the Borlänge more unlikely places — the karaoke bar. It became a “free zone” for her, she says, “far away from my own self doubts and prestige about music.” After piling songs for years without ever releasing anything, she was relieved of the pressure she felt towards her own creations and began again as Many Voices Speak.
Her debut EP Away for All Time was released in 2016 and received early attention online with its nostalgic lead single “Video Child” and an airy cover of Rodgers and Hartz‘s classic “Blue Moon,” garnering support from Spotify, Stereogum, Noisey, WNYC, Idolator and more, while landing Many Voices Speak highly on the Hype Machine charts and a poignant placement in Riverdale.
