In 2015, Amanda Bergman had a hit with “Vintersaga”, a cover of a song by Ted Ström, after it was featured in a Volvo car ad. It crackled with atmospheric Scandinavian tension and has become the Swedish singer’s calling card. Docks, her first album under her own name, merely underlined her obvious talents and showcased her alluring voice. She honed her skills by touring with fellow fantastic Swedes First Aid Kit and The Tallest Man on Earth. We’re so pleased she’s bringing her magnificent, elegiac songs to our festival.
