New Release Premiere: Majken – This War Belongs To You

Following the release of debut single Lovely Daughter last month, Swedish newcomer Majken is set to release her equally impressive and overwhelmingly beautiful new track tomorrow

However, if you fancy taking an early listen, then we’re thrilled to bring you the premiere of the stunning This War Belongs To You…

Born in the southern Swedish coastal town of Karlskrona, Majken has been writing songs since the age of 14. Scheduled for release this Autumn via Kollektivet Records, her debut album explores themes of teenage desire, uncertainty of the heart and mental health, experienced from both sides. The record was recorded at her home in Malmo with Damon Tutunjian (Mew, Swirlies), a kindred spirit who appreciates the strange magic of lo-fi recordings almost as much as she does. Tutunjian allowed her to raid his collection of 70’s synthesisers and effects, which helped to shape the sound of the record

Majken had this to say about the new track: “The song is about self-preservation. The tension that is built up over the first two minutes bursts as the synths come in like a wall of tears. I was very young when I wrote this song, but my chest still gets heavy whenever I perform it”
