Looking for the perfect background music to spend your quiet, moody mornings to? Give Friction! a try. The group is actually a one-man band composed of Swedish native, Pierre Björklund. The artist sings, writes, records and produces his own music. Currently, he’s associated and signed onto Bakery Allstars Inc.; a non-profit organization that aims to release and share music, art or films to anybody who wants it.
If You Turn Around You’ll See Me is a moody, atmospheric album that’s filled with piano laced tracks. It’s perfect if you feel like relaxing or maybe reflecting on some of the more serious things in life. The compilation is offered free on Jamendo but you can also purchase the singles on iTunes to support the singer.
The entire compilation was recorded in the artists’ home studio, adding to that sense of homeyness to the record. It opens with the somber track, Wish I Had Something (featuring Ryan Corbett.) Featuring quiet vocals and beautiful piano work, the song makes me think of days when you just wanna curl up in bed in the morning while rain pours down outside. The gloomy and slow vibe of the track is perfect if you want to stay at home and relax.
Another lovely track is the guitar infused, No Space Left To Grow. The song has a calming acoustic feel which matches beautifully with the singer’s vocals. It’s melodic and perfect for some simple reminiscing.
This album is one out of three compilations released by the singer/songwriter. If you love quiet and melodic pop, then you might feel at home with this record.
