Sarah Klang is the 26-year-old singer songwriter that hails from Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city. Since 2016 she has been releasing what she describes as pop songs laced with country and Americana influences and is about to release her second album ‘Creamy Blue’ on October 25th 2019. After making her major breakthrough in 2018 with a series of critically acclaimed singles she went on to release her #1 charting and Swedish Grammy winning album ‘Love In the Milky Way’ later that same year.
Whilst working as a waitress in her father’s bar she made the decision to turn her hand to writing her own songs, using her love and the long history of classic love songs as her starting point. This resulted in her writing the kind of songs that have charmed Scandinavian and European audiences alike. With her heart meltingly beautiful yet grandiose voice she manages to create the illusion that she’s simultaneously pouring her bleeding heart into the mic whilst trying to claw her way out of the depths of her longing for lost love, leaving the audience wondering about the heartache that lay behind it. With a batch of self-penned songs that showcased a dreamy melancholy she set about playing in a number of underground venues in Gothenburg. From the stage she created an almost vintage soundscape preaching to the audience that although she may have been devastated by the longing for the love of another optimism for the future always wins through.
Following the release of debut album Love In The Milky Way’ Sarah embarked on a sell out tour of Scandinavia which included three straight sold out nights at Stockholm’s Södra Teatern and a triumphant hometown return at the Gothenburg Concert Hall. A short European tour followed and at the start of 2019 Sarah and her band accompanied First Aid Kit on their arena tour. During the tour she showcased new material from her upcoming album, culminating in her performing her biggest headline show to date at Stockholm’s Gröna Lund in May.
October 25th 2019 is the release date for ‘Creamy Blue’, Sarah Klangs second album, once again written and produced in collaboration with Kevin Andersson. In back up to the release Sarah and her band head back out on a European tour and who knows what awaits after that?
Seen by its current members as less of an artist or band than a fluid, open-ended project, Hailaker (hay-ull-ache-err)’s principal members and founders are Jemima Coulter and Ed Tullett (each solo musicians in their own right) who work between Bristol, Cardiff, and Oxfordshire. Contributing to the collective alongside Coulter and Tullett are the Portland, Oregon-based artist Mike Roth who handles artwork, and Ali Lacey of Novo Amor.
