New Track: Theresa Andersson – “Injuns” (Live in Sweden)

 

New Orleans based singer Theresa Andersson has got a little tribal-esque Feist and Bjork action going on for this live version of “Injuns” and we love it so! What gorgeous whirlwind of sound. The Swedish artist interestingly cites soul and gospel amongst her influences.

Known best for her live shows, she “uses looping pedals to build layers of percussion and stringed instruments” to set the groundwork for her captivating vocals. Kind of reminds us of what Zoe Keating and Kimbra do, which we also love.

Stream and download the track below, thank us later.
