Vanbot Discusses "Siberia"
Wed, 15 Feb 2017 15:15:34
Ester Ideskog, aka Vanbot, is preparing to release her third album, Siberia. The album was written and recorded completely on the Trans-Siberian Railway together with Johannes Berglund who has worked with The Knife, Lykke Li, FKA Twigs, Owen Pallett and Petter Winnberg of Amason.
Throughout her career she has been compared to Robyn, a fellow Swedish musician who has been pushing the boundaries of pop for decades, and for good reason. While in the studio, Ideskog found herself overwhelmed by all the tools at her disposal, but instead of letting that get the best of her, she hit the open railways and travelled through one of the most desolate regions of the world. The result, an album that exists like a memory.
ARTISTdirect caught up with Vanbot to discuss her latest project, learn about the Gnosjö-spirit, and find out what inspired her to create music in the beginning.
