Solander are a Swedish folk pop duo including guitarist/vocalist Fredrik Karlsson and multi-instrumentalist Anja Linna. Solander debuted in 2009 and the band is releasing its new album, Monochromatic Memories on February 4th on Tendervision Recording. “The Woods Are Gone” is a beautiful, yet melancholy song, anchored by warm acoustic guitar lines, delicate banjos, perfectly timed drum brushed rhythms and other colorfully layered instrumentation. The band will be in the States in March during SXSW in Austin, Texas, with a U.S. tour to follow. Download it below.
