Swedish artist/actress, Frida Sundemo announces debut record, Flashbacks & Futures | available 10/6 via Cosmos Music

Swedish songstress/actress Frida Sundemo has announced the release of her highly anticipated international debut album Flashbacks & Futures, due for release on October 6th through leading Scandinavian record label Cosmos Music. Stream here

Flashbacks & Futures is a record inspired by space, traversing a vast universe from minimal synth-pop isolation to heavenly orchestral vistas, filled with color and beauty.

Frida explains this inspiration, “First of all, I love the way I feel when my mind is set on space. It’s like I enter this place beyond time where you’re free to create whatever you like. I feel that I’m allowed to think and create much bigger than I usually do.”

She continues, “Second, I’m struck by the beauty of it. You’d never need a filter to make a photo of outer space better. I’m also in love with all kind of sci-fi movies taking place in space. Everything from 2001: A Space Odyssey to The Martian or Interstellar.”

From the opening sci-fi tinged and Depeche Mode-esque title track right through to the teary, fearful album closer ‘Astronaut’, Flashbacks & Futures is a kin to if alterna pop singer, Robyn did the soundtrack for 2001: A Space Odyssey. The album features the sky-scraping glacial grandeur of previous highly acclaimed singles ‘We Are Dreamers’, ‘It’s OK’ and ‘Keep An Eye On Me’.

Elsewhere on the record the pulsating undulations of the anthemic hit-in-the-making ‘Stay Young’ and the arresting sparseness of tracks such as ‘Circles’ and ‘To The End And Back’, further develop the sound that Frida and producer Joel Humlén have been making their own over the past few years.

Frida Sundemo has created a debut of otherworldly beauty and one that is set to meet the expectations for one of the most highly anticipated albums to be coming out of Scandinavia this year.
