Sir Was Anteprima Video


L’artista svedese
Joel Wästberg aka Sir Was presenta qui in ANTEPRIMA per l’Italia il nuovo video del brano ‘Falcon‘ estratto dal suo EP ‘Says Hi‘ (in uscita il 2 Giugno per City Slang) e diretto da Fredrik Egerstand.

Cresciuto nel villaggio di Frillesås (Svezia), Sir Washa studiato sassofono jazz a Gothenburg per poi immergersi nei ritmi africani viaggiando attraverso Mozambico e Zimbabwe per trovare ispirazione. Il risultato del suo percorso è uno stile unico che trascende le classificazioni.

“I’ve been interviewing myself in the shower for years,” he jokes, “secretly dreaming about daring to put out my own music. But I finally felt ready to give myself the opportunity. I didn’t have a clear intellectual idea, but I had a gut feeling, an imagination of a sound. A lot was going on – big changes, break ups – and life felt shitty, but also open. I was broke, but I was starting to feel some kind of new feeling of… let’s call it freedom. I realised that I needed to make an album or I'd become bitter and angry. I thought, ‘If I don't take myself seriously, I can't take anyone else seriously either’. I don't care if 5 or 5,000 people hear it, as long as it comes out of my studio.”
