Last month, as the majority of the east coast was busy digging themselves out of the snow drifts, Swedish folk-pop duo Fredrik landed upon our shores and embarked on a tour in support of their album, Trilogi. This latest effort, as the name implies, is comprised of 3 EPs that were released previously in limited quantities.
When we last saw the band, they were touring as a 6-piece with chamber-pop tendencies woven into their dreamy folk. This time around they’ve economized the band into a slender two-piece, yet losing none of the delicate and refined beauty in their compositions. Building atmosphere with loops, samples, synth washes and fuzzy vocals, their music paints a perfect dreamscape.
On the second night in DC, Fredrik stripped things down even further and shared with us an acoustic version of “Viskra,” from Trilogi.
