The world’s longest ghost ride.
A neo-classical ballet about winter, fall, spring and summer.
An epic failure.
You do it we don’t have time.
Sometimes the description is better than the real thing.

About Linn Öberg:
Linn Öberg is a songwriter and performer currently living in Stockholm. As an eight-year-old, she went to the nearby church choir in village outside Nyköping where she grew up and that was where her passion for music (and especially singing) was founded. A few years later she got her first guitar and began creating her own music, inspired by artists such as Leonard Cohen, Laura Marling and Bon Iver. The fascination for nature runs like a red thread through Linn’s lyrics, and the songs – as performed acoustically with guitar, drums and vocal harmonies – conveys an atmosphere that puts the listener in an almost dreamlike state.
The acoustic guitar and emotive voice – strong and fragile at the same time, not unlike Ane Brun’s voice – is in the foreground while the vocal singing enhances the feeling of rural folk. Meanwhile, there is something very solemn, almost sacred of Linn’s music. Dagens Nyheter has highlighted her as one of those that will break through 2012 and her music got a 5-star review from the music magazine GAFFA (Feb 2012). In May 2012 Linn released their first EP “Parades” available on Spotify and iTunes.
