Take Off Your Disguise

Independent via AWAL


Back at the start of September, we introduced you to Swedish-American singer-songwriter Berg and her beautifully wistful debut track What If. Now she is back with her second offering from her collection of songs produced by Faris Badwan (The Horrors) and a slightly different sound than before. Leaning more to the electronic side of alt-pop, Take Off Your Disguise blends otherworldly and futuristic production with flourishes of krautrock as Berg, lyrically, tackles the dark vs light sides of life. It’s a deeply personal number that soars effortlessly, highlighting her gorgeous vocals to full effect. The track has already started to gain traction online with blogs, and this Thursday will see Wonderland magazine premier the video, which continues the cinematic story of What If. She recently sold out St Pancras Old Church and upstairs at Ronnie Scott's in London, and next month will be heading over to New York to play two shows there, as well as meet with a few sync companies. Fizzing with ideas and creativity, Berg has once again demonstrated her gorgeous songwriting, and we can’t wait to hear what’s next.
