Linnea Olsson

As frontwoman of Swedish alt-pop act Paintbox, Linnea Olsson and her cello were always flanked by a range of sounds to push up against. Her solo work, as features on her debut album ‘Ah!’, places them in much more open territory. Creating layered pieces built by looping her cello, Olsson’s voice is able to ring out and also expose its fragility more so that with her former band.

This Saturday she begins her first ever tour of the British Isles with a show in Dublin, before heading to Bristol on Tuesday and London on Wednesday, followed by gigs in Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham and Glasgow.

Olsson’s new single ‘Never Again’ is available as a free download here, or you can watch the video right here:
