ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Soft, airy, and graceful, sweet Sofia Talvik is the next rising star from Sweden. With her fourth album "Florida" Sofia takes her sound a step further and mixes her Scandinavian heritage with the mystique of the American south, like the chants of black magic but tainted with the lingering sunshine of the Florida sun she takes us on a journey unlike any other.

Just home from an extensive US tour with gigs in Hawaii as well as on South by Southwest, followed by reviews like:
"This Swedish singer/songwriter packs enough serious doses of emotion and catchy melodies to make put her on the industry buzz list in a big way and make her a trailblazer." -lp33.tv

"Florida" is Sofia Talvik’s 4th album, recorded and produced by herself.

Chris at CD Baby

Editors Pick
Swedish pop maven Sofia Talvik's "Jonestown" was an absolute favorite of ours at CD Baby. Now she's back with an equally captivating collection of tunes. Where "Jonestown" was brooding, lush, and orchestral, “Florida” finds this stylistic chameleon flirting with the American South, voodoo, twang, moonshine, and gothic mystique.

Peter Swenson - CD Baby Folk Editor

Beautiful, twangy, delightful
It’s not often that an album takes your breath away, and I hate to sound hyperbolic, but “Florida” actually has several “Oh my god!” moments of sheer beauty. Both joyful and melancholic, Sofia’s voice is the star, while perfectly twangy Nashville guitar backed by lush orchestrations, loping drums, and occasional electronic elements propel the songs along gently. While not sounding exactly like any one artist, this album calls to mind everything from classic Nancy Sinatra to Belle & Sebastian to Rufus Wainwright. The references to the American south are plentiful and it’s fascinating to hear how the music of the region gets filtered through her Scandinavian sensibilities. Finally and equally noteworthy is the stellar production of the album, which is done entirely by Sofia herself. It’s a wonderfully effervescent album, and I know I’ll be listening to it a lot this summer.
