Sir Was Anteprima Video
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.”
