FRESH: ‘Confessions Of A Sinner’ – Felin

Felin has “Confessions Of A Sinner”!

by Christopher Smith

There is no doubt that Felin has had a packed 2019. She released a debut album called “Reckless Dreamers”, went on tour in collaboration with Shotluckan as well as several well-composed music videos. But despite this, she has managed to put together a collaboration with the well knownn Swedish singer Julia Frej and produced a Christmas song. “Confessions of a sinner”, is Julia Frej and Felin’s contribution to Christmas 2019.

The idea of ​​having Julia Frej was born when Felin released her debut album and during the release she got company from her on stage. To put it in her own words, the thinking went like this: “Sure as hell she was going to be on Christmas song!” Here’s how Felin describes the single: “Santa is drunk, you’ve been drinking way too much alcohol and the number of blank slots in you memory is as many as the snowflakes falling from the sky. The lyrics are full of dark brutal humor, where we confess our sins to Santa”.

We think we have far too few messy Christmas songs, so here comes our contribution. Felin is a Swedish audiovisual duo consisting of songwriter/ artist Elin Blom and photographer/ director Fredrik Etoall (the “F” in Felin). Having worked with the likes of Icona Pop, The Rolling Stones and Adam Lambert, F E L I N are all about the highest quality of sound as well as image, by making the two inter-dimensional and expansive of one another. Felin released their debut EP last fall and played the legendary TV-show ”Rockpalast” in Germany. Their song have been played on the radio in Scandinavia and UK and now they’re ready for the Swedish festival summer coming up.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
