Frida Hyvönen’s sparse, piano-based songs like I Drive My Friend and I Was A Serene Teenage Child immediately involve you in a world filled with brittle but powerful emotions.
Until Death Comes is the kind of record a high school tough chick would make – hip thrust out, smoking a cigarette, but wearing dark glasses to hide a brimming heart.
Carving a path through the fertile land of Sweden, Frida Hyvönen is a talented piano-based songwriter in the vein of Laura Nyro with a passionate bite and a voice like an icicle that cuts deep.
Recorded in the legendary Atlantis studio in Stockholm and co-produced with Jari Haapalainen, Frida’s debut record, Until Death Comes features a raw home-recording feel not dissimilar to The Stones’ Beggars Banquet, Joni Mitchell’s Blue or Carole King’s Tapestry.
Loved in her home country, she’s just beginning to peek out into the rest of the world by touring in support of country-mates Jens Lekman, Jose Gonzalaz and The Concretes (who originally released Until Death Comes in Scandinavia on their own Licking Fingers imprint).
