The duo met when Ewik Rodell was looking for new sounds for a concept album she was working on. She had found Mattias Olsson through mutual friends. After meeting, talking and listening Olsson asked if Rodell could try singing on some songs he had written. The music was written on old archaic keyboards and drum machines from the 60s and 70s that play loops and sounds from film and tape. The music had a sort of sepia toned postcard feel to them and after listening to them a sort of vague lyrical concept started taking shape. Pictures, stories and glimpses. Memories and tape. It’s about creating abstract images, setting the scene and then letting the listener connect the dots. In short…In These Murky Waters sound like a memory you´ve never actually had. Henning Lindahl have created the nice artwork.
