Taken By Trees – Lost and Found

There are 2 ways you could have heard Victoria Bergsman’s voice up to this point. Firstly she spent over a decade with one of Sweden’s most priceless exports the Concretes (go seek ‘Sugar’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love‘) and secondly just last year she was the dreamy female foil on Peter Bjorn & John’s ‘Young Folks’. It’s been 15 months now since she decided that the solo route was where it was for her and by the sounds of ‘Lost and Found’ we should be thankful for her decision. Taken from Taken By Trees (Bjorn Yttling produced) debut ‘Open Field’ it displays a minimal of effort for the maximum of undiluted pleasure. Camera Obscura certainly spring to mind as a worthy contemporary but Bergsman’s uncluttered musical vision is one that feels unique. Her voice is the chief selling point but you can’t help admiring the delicate instrumentation (which is normally only added as a aside after the vocals have been put down) that colours the background. Bergman’s chronic stage fright means that Taken By Trees are currently on a micro tour to promote ‘Open Field’. KD
