Kiss Your Darlings is written on a cheap acoustic guitar in the living room of the collective I moved into after my wife and I had been living three years in Malmö.

We had returned home after her studies, and I myself was working on a rather anxious and depressed period. So it feels right for the first time to put words to the tunes I wrote.


It is the same old cliche - the music became a therapeutic agent and at the same time a medium in which I could convey my gratitude to my wife for her support, patience and inspiring being.

At the same time, the record contains some of the most optimistic instrumental tones we have committed, and it even provided us with a DMA JAZZ nomination for best album in 2018.

I am very proud of the album and think it contains some of the most intense and mature we have performed as a band.

The acoustic EP features new versions of selected tunes of the Kiss Your Darlings album. A warm and intimate sound is produced by the chamber quartet, and supports the vocal beautifully.
