Swedish singer-songwriter Erik Björklund (known as the leader of Delsbo Beach Club and Blodmyren) has returned to Rama Lama Records with a new solo single “På min cykel” (On my bike).
An instantly appealing and melodic indie rock number, it is the first song taken out of his upcoming collection Låtar från en svunnen tid (Songs from the past) which is set for release digitally and on a limited CD on April 14.
Speaking of it, Erik says: “På min cykel” is about “the sense of freedom you get after a bike ride. I wrote this song instantly after coming home from a long journey by bike, recording it while still sweaty and a bit dizzy.
The record is called ‘Låtar från en svunnen tid” (Songs from the past) and as the title suggests it is a collection of older material, most of them over two years old and some way older than that. They are about the process of figuring out who I am as a 25-30-year old and new in the Stockholm underground scene. It is easy to get lost and forget who you really are. The lyrics deal with the slow therapeutic processing of a life with both bright and dark moments and facing those as you grow and are becoming an “adult for real”. It is also about a journey where I lost the joy in making music and finding my way back”.
