Swedish artist Many Voices Speak has announced the release of her debut album ‘Tank Town’ on 31 August via Strangers Candy.
Following the release of first single ‘Necessaries’, Many Voices Speak has now shared new track ‘I Saw You’. Of the song, she says “is about unshared sorrow and how I’ve experienced it affecting the self-image. There’s a certain alienation about getting stuck in the past, while becoming an observer of your actual reality.” The track was premiered on The Line of Best Fit, who described it as “a devastatingly pretty, moving piece of music”.
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.
