When some people reach nearly 15 years into their career, stagnation or rot often begins to set in. Ideas become strained, repetition appears and some artists feel a little lost at sea as times and trends have changed around them. For Loney Dear's Emil Svanängen, the opposite is true. On his self-titled seventh album, he has undergone a rebirth, a transition and had a profound artistic awakening...the beginning of something very new and very potent. Often described as indie pop (when in fact the music has always been more multifaceted and intricate than that genre suggests) this new collection looks set to squash such binary comparisons.

Whilst inspired by the likes of the inimitable Nina Simone, the new, and darker, album is a creation that feels as difficult as it does futile to pigeonhole. However, for those who enjoy the stripped back intimacy and compositional brilliance of Bon Iver, complete with flashes of John Grant's more electronic work and sprinkles of Brian Eno's production work - plus hidden flutters of jazz rhythms and subtle nods to Elton John - then this is an album that has moments of all, alongside being very much its own singular creation.

Five years in the making, this album has seen Svanängen go through some personal transitions and developments, reconciling himself with the position of his own music, career and personal issues to let loose a sense of freedom, fun and understanding of patience that is allowing him to stop playing it safe.
