about

The only way out of therapy is to start to love yourself. This realization was the impetus for Annasara Lundgren to write the songs on this EP. Her introverted lyrics weave tales of unrequited love that gives way to love turning inward.

Self Love invites the listener to a rich sound world of acoustic instruments. In the spotlight are Annasara’s captivating voice and piano; the big old black piano we glimpse on the album cover has become her signature. At home in her Malmö apartment, this piano has been center-stage on recordings as well as in photographs and live videos.

Violins surround the vocal-piano duo: sometimes a lone loop, sometimes a small orchestra. Everything is virtuosically performed by Annasara, who is an accomplished classical violinist in addition to being a singer and composer.

Annasara’s music can be described as avant-garde chamber pop. It’s pop, but not poppy. It’s jazzy, but not jazz. Influences can be heard from Agnes Obel and Nils Frahm, as well as Radiohead and Kate Bush. Most of all, Annasara’s work echoes with inspiration from early 19-century classical composers like Claude Debussy and Viktor Ullman.

Music, lyrics, arrangements, and productions by Annasara Lundgren. Recorded at Sunnanå Studio and Studio Nobelvägen. Mixed by Tobias Ekqvist. Mastered by Hans Olsson Brookes. Cover photo by Marthe Veian Andreassen.
