An interview with Foreign Slippers and review of album Farewell to the Old Ghosts

Sweden's Gabi Froden is the latest Scandinavian songstrel to win over my heart... with a beautiful new album that encompasses gorgeous melodies and immaculate storytelling skills.

Melding Scandinavian iciness with immaculate story-telling skills, Sweden's Gabi Froden is the latest songstrel to win my heart. Farewell to the Old Ghosts showcases her gorgeous voice, by turns sweet as sugar and strong as steel. With skills learned in the church choir of her native town of Norrkoping, and then honed on tour singing Tom Petty and Pavement covers with previous bands, now is the perfect time to unleash her new guise as Foreign Slippers. From the soaring melody of Thank the Moon to the yearning of Two People in You and the melancholy of What are You Waiting For… this is an album that you will listen to again and again, as I have done in recent weeks.
