    Forward And Back (feat. Frida Sundemo)

About the project

Frida is a Swedish superstar singer who’s profile rose even further in 2015 when she made her Hollywood acting debut with a leading role in the big screen adaption of John Niven’s Kill Your Friends, alongside stars including Nicholas Hoult and James Corden. Her music has also created the right feeling in several key scenes in major international TV shows and movies like Grey’s Anatomy, Girlhood and Kill Your Friends.

‘Forward And Back’ was co-written by Frida and Walter for the coming-of-age drama ‘Iceland Is Best’, starring Judd Nelson and Helena Mattson. The beautiful lyrics were performed by Frida with Walter taking over production and recording a string quartet of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The instruments were recorded by Nick Taylor at the iconic Air Edel Studios (Madonna, Queen, ‘Mr Turner’). To add to a more emotional and warm sound the recordings were made to analog tape and later processed in Pro Tools.

“And, in imbuing these intensely electronic tracks with the orchestral elements Sundemo does, she breathes human beauty into truly breathtaking compositions, the ice thawing – like a heart shape rubbed into moist condensation on, say, a Swedish window – to reveal a palpitating, red-blooded brilliance rushing all the way through her veins.”

“New track ‘Gold’ is just wonderful, recalling everyone from Pet Shop Boys to The Knife in its sheer sonic splendour. “
