CLOUDBERRY COMPLEMENT:

Heart & Soul Of Stockholm: An Interview With I Break Horses (John Freeman , November 29th, 2011, Quietus)
Stockholm is a beautiful place. Spanning several islands, a combination of opulent architecture, grand waterways and impossibly good-looking townsfolk create a winning first impression. It's the sort of city where one can dine in a 300-year-old restaurant frequented by the Nobel Prize committee - the cloudberry soup dessert is perfection. I'm meeting up with I Break Horses, two Stockholm natives. When they arrive in the lobby of my hotel singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Maria Lindén and drummer Fredrik Balck are immediately warm, open and welcoming. They also appear to be utterly without any sense of just how good their debut album Hearts actually is. When I compliment Maria on the waves of heady, shoegaze-leaning electronica that make up their sound, she seems to be fighting back tears. Her reaction is genuine - Maria has put both heart and soul into her music.
