THE FOREST AND THE TREES

 

The Forest & The Trees are Joel and Linnea Edin, they live in marital bliss in their apartment just outside of Stockholm, Sweden where they sleep, eat and create spectacularly joyous pop music.

Formed from the ashes of The Tupelo Honeys – a duo consisting of Joel and his sister Linn – Joel and Linnea began writing music together whilst recording a Christmas CD-R for their friends and family. Something clicked between them – the closeness of their marriage coupled with Joel’s effortless ability to write heartbreaking harmonies and simplistic pop hooks spurred the duo on and has led them to create some of the most bittersweet, romantic music we’ve heard in a very long time.

Their self-titled debut album is a technicolor burst of Swedish sunshine. Featuring David Lindvall (bass) and Ola Hultgren (drums) from fellow Stockholm residents Loney Dear – The Forest & The Trees is pop perfection personified.
