For Tomorrow is one of those records that you find online and think to yourself, “is this really free?” Listening to the quality of the recording as well as the music might make you think twice but it is available as a free download so listeners can enjoy this amazing folk pop compilation from the Swedish group.
Emerald Park is made up of Tobias Borelius, Martina Johansson, Frans af Schmidt, Mats Andreasson, and Mikael Eskilsson.
The band formed back in 2001 and started off as a seven piece crew. But things didn’t go according to plan and lineups were changed. Now, the group is back as a five piece along with a new netlabel, 23 Seconds. They re-released For Tomorrow – an album filled with lush melodies and catchy choruses that will certainly brighten up your day.
For Tomorrow is littered with beautiful, upbeat and catchy songs that resonate indie pop everywhere. The album opens with a one minute intro and segues into the wonderful track, The Commonfield. One of my most favorite songs on the record, it gladly welcomes the listener and transports them into a sunshine-filled, relaxing summer afternoon.
Another amazing track is the hipster inspired, A Higher Loss. The vocals are pretty good and I love the melody of the song. With the onslaught of hipster bands from time immemorial, this one has a familiar feel to it. Thankfully, there’s also enough diversity to make it different from the rest. The injection of female vocals, unpredictable patterns and just good old great rhythm makes this a winner in my book as well. Other tracks worth checking out include, title track, For Tomorrow, Ambivalence and the very folky, Värnhem.
The album is definitely worth downloading if indie folk pop is right up your alley. It’s a beautiful compilation that is filled with gorgeous vocals, great melodies and very catchy beats. For Tomorrow is currently available as a free download and licensed under creative commons.
