You know her as the former lead vocalist for Swedish indie-pop band The Concretes and from last year's Peter Bjorn and John's single Young Folks, but it's been almost a year since Victoria Bergsman announced her departure from The Concretes. She's just released on Rough Trade records, her very own debut album "Open Field" under the name Taken By Trees; able to capture and showcase her delicate wistful vocals as we know it.
Produced with Bjorn Yttling, the album takes the listener through a walk in the forest with its echoes and instrumental patterns like stones skipping water; with the beautiful combination of folk and pop; it manages to bring simplicity which is what makes this album personal, enough to open up and see the true side of Victoria.
