Garmarna premiere new track “Dagen Flyr”

Swedish folk rock pioneers Garmarna have teamed up with Folk ‘n Rock for the premiere of their new single “Dagen Flyr”. Listen to the new song below.

Garmarna comment:

“This song goes way back. We’ve played it live for nearly twenty years or so, and to finally release it feels less like a reveal and more as if we are putting something right. Being a choral from the Swedish speaking parts of Estonia, the lyrics concerns old age, a goodbye to life and a welcome of sorts to the inevitable death. Obviously we didn’t really treat it as something as sombre. Rather, Stefan came up with a very catchy violin-tune and once we paired the vocal part with the instrumental, everything else pretty much played out by itself. Arranging a Garmarna tune can often be a painful and stretched out process but not in this instance. Bass riff, drums, some acoustic guitars – done and dusted!”
