Dearest Sister
Jazz skills meet songwriting sensibility. And: Another extraordinary discovery from the musical wonderland of Sweden. The three women and two men of the new ACT "Dearest Sister" stand for a current phenomenon:Young musicians* with broad horizons and sound, jazz-influenced training, who do not use their skills to play jazz in the conventional sense, but a music that deals with the influences and themes of their own generation.But at the same time, music that deliberately does not want to be "pop", but rather contrasts with the kind of modern mainstream music production and thus fulfils the longing of many listeners for authenticity, originality and emotional depth.
