Lina Tullgren US
When a young artist sips on some Elliott Smith tunes to find her own style, the result is bound to be good, as evidenced by her beautiful debut album “Won”.
What do you want to be when you grow up? For Lina Tullgren, this question is nothing but the reflection of hell in a shrinking mirror. Nevertheless, the New England native sees adulthood with strange fascination. Better (or worse): with deep maturity. After manipulating the violin like a laboratory test tube, she flirted with bluegrass before finally ploughing her own field of exploration. With her brilliant folk ballads and dense, introspective flights of lyricism, Lina Tullgren is right at home next to Warpaint and Anna Calvi.
