Victor-1-cover-650x650
During all my years as an active musician in different constellations I have also worked continuously with my own material. A kind of unrestricted flow of creativity that has given birth to a lot of different expressions. So listening to this album is a journey through many phases in my life.”V.V.V.V.V is an album with a sound world like a kaleidoscope of moods and melodies flowing between silky kraut pop and distorted synths. Claesson takes on his debut album out experiments desire and lets his kraut background form the basis and tops with modern electronic sound

After 3,5 albums with Aerial in Sandviken it was time to go our semi separate ways. Two changed teams to YAST, one went solo with Simian Ghost. The rest (me and Joakim Westlund) joined a band in Gävle that would later become No Coda, now called The Entire Cast. During all my years as an active musician in different constellations I have also worked continuously with my own material. A kind of unrestricted flow of creativity that has given birth to a lot of different expressions. So listening to this album is a journey through many phases in my life.
It is a special feeling to release this record on Lamour Records. Its founder Viktor Zeidner has time and time again invited me to play on his experimental concert arrangements through the years. And as a solo artist I have always focused on trying things out rather than writing songs. On my album cover is a framed poster of my father’s band he had in the sixties called Jahn Claesons. This album is dedicated entirely to him. He was my biggest supporter, and is still my biggest inspiration.

REVIEWS and ARTICLES

Hymn videopremiere the track ‘Ego Death’
“Ego Death” präglas av ett Neu!-liknande trumkomp och en pulserande synth. Sången – melankolisk och återhållsam – ligger inbäddad och ger en vägledande känsla. Rösten griper tag utan att vara forcerande. Produktionen är fängslande och personlig.”

“The first one, which opens the album, is a dreamlike guitar-driven escapade while the second one flirts with dark electronic arrangements; two distinct universes that confirm the different periods of inspirations of the artist.”

Yes / No – new music and travel from all directions
“The outro appears, long and languorous, a pinging guitar melody, soft piano, yet struck like distant lightning with peals of distorted guitar, disappearing into the vapour.”
