Loney, Dear: "I Am John"


Multi-instrumentalist Emil Svanängen is Loney, Dear

I'm currently in love with Sweden's Loney, Dear.

"Loney, Dear is the X-man band. Loney, Dear is also the disguise of multi-instrumentalist and audio homecooking expert Emil Svanängen. In the tiny, sweltering hot Stockholm studio apartment, or in the cool basement of his parents house is where all the magic happens. The outside world has no idea of whats going on. Two records a year is his M.O., and by new years eve of 2009 all is said to come to a close."

I'll be completely honest, for about a week I was going around telling everyone about this awesome band Lonely, Dear. One day I realized that it is infact Loney and not Lonely and I felt totally dumb. But anyway! Emil has been recording and releasing albums since 2003 and he's finally got his big break! In February, SubPop will release his 2005 gem of an album, Loney Noir. Bridging the gap between happy-go-lucky indie pop and heartfelt folk, Loney, Noir is an album to curl up with in front of nice warm fire, watching the snow come down outside -- at least, that's the ideal. This song, along with a few others I might be posting soon, has been on repeat all week.

[MP3]: Loney, Dear :: I Am John (Woah Man! HUGE Recommendation!)
"I Am John" opens up with acoustic guitar, slowly bringing in back-up "la la las" into the mix, echoing every other line. Then, before you know it, you're hearing bells, drums, clarinet, and what sounds like either an extremely fuzzed-out keyboard or guitar. The shining of moment of the song, however, comes right at the 2:10 mark with layered voices all singing something over each other. I don't know what they're saying, but it's gotta be good, because they sound pretty damn happy.

love both the song and the post.

For the record, he's singing

"I've got a feeling of you and we danced for so long, I want your arms around me like lovers do, and I'm never gonna let you down, never gonna let you down..."

I'm really excited for this release.

I love the end of this track as well, thanks to whoever provided those lyrics above. I've been repeating that short part numerous time throughout the entire night.

I think we might've posted on this at the exact same time btw haha.

I came across this song recently, can't remember how, and am completely obsessed with it. Found your blog through searching for the lyrics and just had to comment on that moment you mention at 2:10 - yip, that's it, I call it the Bee Gees moment. It's just goosebumpy, gorgeousbeautiful, break your little heart lovely. Hurray, hurray. My first special find of 2007 - if a little late. Off to search for some more.
