Majken is an interesting Swedish Karlskrona born singer-songwriter. She announced the release of her debut album Young Believer which will be out on December 7th via Kollektivet Records. It explores themes of teenage desire, uncertainly of the heart and mental health, experienced from both sides. The album was recorded at her home in Malmo with Damon Tutunjian (Mew, Swirlies).
We already shared “Lovely Daughter”, “Teenage Desires” and “This War Belongs To You”; “Forest Of My Times” is a new excerpt. Her words about it: ”Here, unspoken vows entail more than just an exclusive romantic relationship, but also a social identity, a new home, and a new start. The question is whether these vows exists at all. This song is a gentle reminder of that desperate insecurity that sometimes hits you in the beginning of a new relationship. It’s a very direct song.
