Over four years since their music appeared online and two EPs later, Swedish duo Emil Erstrand and Nils Nygårdh aka Grapell are readying the release of their debut long-play titled Crier on November 3rd via Roll Call Records (album artwork below). As one could possibly take from the album’s name, it draws from themes of love and heartbreak with compositions so thought out unmet deadlines and delays became a standard part of the recording process done their rehersal space and Erstrand’s house. “We Can Only Blame Ourselves” is the first single and characterized by Erstrand a “reminder to all the lovers out there” full of delicate, unabashed soul carried by rhythmic piano and covered in a coppery sheen that hits just before sundown. Simple sophistication comes to mind when describing their music and this track is no different. It sounds like song that could have been created at any point over the last 40 years making it timeless, yet refreshingly organic and nuanced in a time laptop producers get most of the attention. Listen to the song below.
