Girl With A Coin

Taken By Trees

I’ve recently come across Taken By Trees, solo project of Victoria Bergsman.

You may recognise her unique voice as the former leadsinger of The Concretes. Victoria, as well as being one of the three founding members, was singer and songwriter for The Concretes for 11 years until deciding to leave the band in 2006.

You will probably also recognise Victoria’s voice from one of the biggest and most popular songs of last year, Peter Bjorn & John’s “Young Folks” (yes, the one with the whistling). Bjorn Yttling helped Victoria to produce the album “Open Field”.

Her album “Open Field”, released 2007 on Rough Trade, her voice is delicate and beautiful and overall it’s a stunning record. She recently released the single “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, a Guns & Roses cover.

I’m kicking myself for missing her at Le Weekend Festival in Sitrling last month.
