Holding On To A Dream

Joel Wästberg, best known under his stage name sir Was, is mixing up pop, soul and hip-hop once again for his latest studio effort Holding On To a Dream. Consciously going lo-fi for an authentic vinyl sound, the new album includes a sparkling collaboration with Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, titled ‘Deployed’.

Digging A Tunnel

Gothenburg’s Joel Wästberg, AKA sir Was, delivers a debut album that supposedly takes its cues from D’Angelo, My Bloody Valentine, Liturgy and even Sly. Playing every instrument on the record (but for the bagpipe and harmonica), sir Was’ introspective debut arrives via alt mainstays City Slang, heralded by the rough yet mellow soul of lead single “In The Midst”.
