LaikeThe Swedish artist Laike will release his debut album on the British folk label Les Cousins Music. With roots in the British folk songs from the 60’s and 70’s combined with Swedish contemporary lyrics and influences Christofer Stahle; the man behind the artist, has composed a moody, melodic album with a faithful psychedelic touch. Mixing British folk with Swedish lyrics is an innovative approach that sounds quite natural to an English speaking person, possibly because of the common origin of the Swedish and English language.

Underpinned by deft acoustic guitar or piano in all the songs, the arrangements consist of instruments ranging from the silver flute to overtone singing. Christofer has a light and clear voice with an unusual emotional timbre that is important for the character of the album. With sympathetic arrangements, dancing flutes and songs shift from steady groove to atmospheric drone. Tipped by Terrascope Magazine, Laike has made a professional debut that fits well among the best examples of the new psychedelic folk wave that can be heard today.
