Victoria Bergsman, ex-member of The Concretes and now behind Taken By Trees recorded her new album ‘East Of Eden’ entirely in Pakistan. The following documentary takes an interesting look at the Stockholm based artist who pursues the making of an album whilst facing of a nation plagued with sexism (and unreliable electricity).
The album East Of Eden will without doubt top a whole heap of end of year album polls – highly recomended. Pre-order a copy from Rough Trade now and receive a bonus disc featuring unreleased tracks and a selection of Pakistani music that influenced and shaped her songwriting.
As an extra treat, download a remix of the Taken By Trees single ‘Mystery’ made with love by our Gothenburg friends Air France.
