SARAH KLANG ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM ‘VIRGO’ RELEASED 7TH MAY 2021 VIA PANGUR RECORDS

& SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR ‘FEVER DREAM’

Gothenburg’s Sarah Klang announces details of her third album ‘Virgo’ out 7th May 2021 via Pangur Records, and shares the lush country-pop ballad ‘Fever Dream,’ accompanied by the kitsch and playfully camp video directed by hyped Swedish photographer Fredrika Eriksson.

Sarah Klang is one of the most promising and influential artists around right now. Klang continues to deliver the most powerful pop masterpieces, each composition created provides such emotive ambiance. The vocal notes of “Fever Dream” soar whilst the lyrics resonate hard to the listener. Sarah Klang creates these brooding orchestrations which resonate with such beauty and serenity. Klang’s far-reaching emotive-enriched vocal harmonies provide such a haunting and human touch to the instrumentation. The music flows with power and billows when the intensity is ramped up.

Sarah Klang’s rise has been meteoric in her homeland of Sweden, her stunning 2018 debut album ‘Love In The Milky Way’ won ‘Best Album’ at the Swedish Grammys with 2019’s divine follow-up ‘Creamy Blue’ nominated also in the ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Alternative Pop’ categories, as well as receiving an IMPALA Award nomination for ‘European Album of the Year’.  Klang’s exuberant live performances saw her invited on First Aid Kit’s arena tour, sell out a headline show at London’s Lexington (2019), as well as headline tours throughout Scandinavia and mainland Europe. 

Previously declaring herself the “saddest girl in Sweden” Klang’s music is dominated by her experiences of heartache, but  ‘Virgo’ displays a flair and colour as it takes us through a spectrum of emotion – from the melancholy sad love songs such as ‘Love So Cruel’ and ‘Love Bliss’ to the defiant “galloping country-rock” (The Line of Best Fit) of previous single ‘Canyon’ which celebrates the exuberance of finding freedom post break-up. 

‘Virgo’ is indicative of Klang’s vintage-pop sound which is classic yet simultaneously fresh. Her most mosaic and immediate album to date, ‘Virgo’ pays homage to Klang’s love of 60s and 70s pop found in the lush Americana-tinged guitars, subtle country hues and piano melodies – recalling artists such as Alela Diane, Katy J Pearson and First Aid Kit – but delivered with a glittering sprinkle of 80s pop classics and 90s RnB influences, with nods to the vintage legacy of Swedish songwriters.
