Live reviews Johnson: WTM: Nightbird som levande sagoväsen (recension) Fürther Kultifest sprühte vor Originalität


Reviews of the self-titled debut album Nightbird

“The self-titled debut includes both a restless searching and a peaceful atmosphere that makes the world stop for a little while” Gaffa, 5/6

 "The singers voice is strong and expressive - even though this is a relatively young artist, her voice conveys life experience." - Soundi, 4/5

“(Nightbird) has an evocatively embracing voice that sounds like a mash-up of M. Ward and a lot of Cat Power-diction. I want more!” Värmlands Folkblad, 4/5

“All Wrong is like a little nightmare from a Tom Waits circus. The music has an impressive poise in its low-keyness, especially considering that this is a debut album.” Smålandsposten, 4/5

“Atmospheric and beautiful. The album could possibly be a bit longer, but you can always listen to it one more time, and that’s something you definitely want to do.” Ung Tro, 4/5

"A relatively unestablished artist who’s really confident in her creating. An artist who is original, even if we can sense a little blues, jazz, and yes maybe even sounds that make you think of electronic music, art music and experimental music. A slide guitar emphasizes the blues and takes us back in time, whereas the other sounds take us to the future. Therefore, maybe the etiquette “timeless” is quite suitable." Tidningen Kulturen


Interview and album review

“The Vaasa-born Anna-Stina Jungerstam’s solo album has a rare honesty that makes you think of Tom Waits and Johnny Cash among others.” Svenska YLE

“Fills ones ears with perfection and one can understand why the producer Katharina Nuttall, who has previously worked with Ane Brun, took Nightbird under her wings.” Popmani

"En av höstens mest beroendeframkallande låtar heter ”Singing In The Rain” och är en Cat Power-doftande singel skriven av finlandsvenskan Anna-Stina Jungerstam aka Nightbird." - HYMN
