In late autumn 2012 Treehugger (Kristoffer Emanuelsson) spent three intense days and nights in Vintage Loft Studio, located in a 200 years old barn, way out on the country side. Together with the talented indie-producer/musician Anders Rane, a warm, organic and earthy sound was created, tailored to fit Treehuggers melodies and lyrics. An important reference was the sound and feel of Nick Drake’s Pink Moon album. The EP is also imbued with nature- and forest sounds recorded in the beautiful woods of Dalsland, which helps create a calm, comforting but also melancholic feel to it .
The result, “Sounds Of Dalsland” is acoustic indie folk where each song is a story, clearly influenced by genres as folk, blues and singersongwriter music, but also developed into something unique and original.
