Sweden’s Deer Tracks release 4-track EP Eggegrund

The island of Eggegrund reads like a mystical island of Swedish lure. Only accessible by boat, the island is rich in wildlife and, in a bygone time, flourished with the activities of fisherman. The island is now known for its stormy weather, famous lighthouses, and its experimental music scene.

Well, the island’s reputation for electronic music is still growing. But, with the newest Deer Tracks recordings taking place on the desolate island, its notoriety is sure to rise. Looking for inspiration following their tour to promote debut disc Aurora, David Lehnberg and Elin Lindfors loaded Lindfors’ grandfather’s fishing boat with all their equipment and braved the weather, finding refuge inside a crumbling lighthouse. While the duo arrived safely, David’s laptop was lost to the weather. Not to be dissuaded, the duo pushed forward, using the island’s “late August waves that collide against Eggegrund’s stones from all directions” as a muse to help shape their  newly lo-fi 4-track release. These tracks painstakingly fuse Lindfor’s hauntingly evocative lyrics with the duo’s glitch-laden electronic backbeats. Want to see this unique recording process?
