The Swedes hardly put a foot wrong when it comes to their musical endeavors, and the latest from Ester Ideskog's Vanbot is another blissful synth-pop ditty.
Produced by Johannes Berglund (The Knife, I Break Horses, Lykke Li, FKA Twigs) and Petter Winnberg (Amason), "Collide (Krasnoyarsk)" is a soaring electronic buzz of captivating synth melodies and Ideskog's ethereal vocals. On the song itself, Iderskog had this to say;
“’Collide (Krasnoyarsk)’ was written after four days on the Trans-Siberian Railway, traveling through the deepest parts of Siberia. The temperature was just above zero, it was raining and we were passing through small villages and old industrial communities. It describes the collisions and the attractions in relationships, and having no choice but to accept the raw and un-retouched feelings. You know, it’s like the poem of David Jones: ‘It’s both a blessing and a curse to feel everything so very deeply’.”
The single is set to appear on Vanbot's forthcoming Siberia album, one release I'm are eagerly awaiting.
