Hi everyone,
We have just uploaded our latest collab (I think it's our tenth one since we met on this forum back in 2016) this week. The lyrics are in Swedish and written by the author Johanna Juneke (who I know personally). It felt a bit different to sing in Swedish but I'm quite pleased with the result. Somehow my vocals ended up sounding a bit softer this time. Would love to hear your feedback on it. 

I'll post the lyrics in this post:

En röst i mörkret (från framtidens byråkrat)

Lampan lyser med starkt rött sken.
Ännu en båt i nöd och kval.
Jag blundar hårt en kort sekund.
Inget val.

Mitt jobb är att trycka på knappen.
En liten grå knapp. En hemsk symbol.
Förr fanns det hopp och en hamn att ta skydd i.
Ett mål.

Nu återstår bara ett stort svart mörker,
ett kaos i världen som ännu finns nu.
En rädsla så stark att den omsluter oss.
Jag rivs itu.

Det är de eller vi har ni tydligt proklamerat.
Ingen annan möjlighet finns idag.
Rädslan är för stor och mörkret för djupt.
Och det är lag.

Mitt jobb är att trycka på knappen.
Den enda uppgift som givits mig här.
En skakande hand med pulserande ådror.
Ett gevär.

@Mar T.

Thank you so much for listening to it. Means a lot hearing your insight on this one. Siobhan did something special with it. He's a wiz when it comes to creating ambient soundscapes.

Best Marcus

Hey @marcus_jb , actually I was a bit mistaken.. not about the HQ song, but about thinking you submitted this song for the kitchen-collab-challenge .. I also read you chose not to enter late, I respect that.. Come join future challenges guys, it's fun!!

I know it's a blast. You're doing a heck of a job with all of these competitions. Just felt that I've not been as active here as I should've been lately. :)

This really sounds fantastic. The vocals ride beautifully on the music......such a deep and rich mix.

Outstanding - very emotional singing  @marcus_jb
Although my Swedish is quite limited, I sort of felt the force, specially in this line
ett kaos i världen som ännu finns nu.

Hoping to hear more from this combination.
Cheers
