sweden’s club 8 is a calming duo consisting of karolina komstedt and johan angergård. inside experimenting and arranging mixes of warm and light harmonic vocals, the music gently compliments within soft tones of melancholy twee pop, sultry bossa nova and laid back trip hop. after forming together in 1995, club 8 have created over six beautiful albums and are currently signed to the label, labrabor records.

(thankyou to skatterbrain’s top 15 of 2007, matthew’s genuine recommendation of club 8 was my introduction and the song leave the north quickly became apart of my favorites too.)

“I love vintage images and enjoy incorporating them into my work. I’m also a big sucker for unique frames. I scour antique shops and resale shops for old images to use, to make a piece a little more modern. I’m in love with collage and enjoy the texture of paper.

My art is a combination of the past and present, my life experiences, my dreams and my sometimes quirky sense of humor. I find my inspiration in old photographs, antique furniture and clothing, nature, surrealist art, and from my relationships.”

i think this is the end for the both of us

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
