Swedish folk rock band Garmarna started their career in 1990, released five records, and then shut down for almost 15 years. So who would expect they’d be back with new material right now? Fortunately, they are.
Althouth their comeback album will collect songs written during the last 10 years, they promise “a refreshing and daring step forward,” because “it really feels like the songs are taken to new heights and new directions.” And yes, they find the new record, title “6”, their best yet.
“Över Gränsen”, or “Across Borders”, is their first single in this millenium and also the first taste of the upcoming album. The video was directed by the band’s previous collabolator Emil Ryderu, and it features the wonderful voice of the singer/rapper/activist Maxida Märak.
