Mariam The Believer
Repeat Until Death
Equipped with her courageously uncompromising approach to music-making, channels this wide-minded creativity in a pop direction with unique, unforgettable results.
Mariam Wallentin is one half of vocal-&-drum-duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums with husband Andreas Werliin. She is also a founding member & composer in Fire! Orchestra. In total, 15 musicians collaborated on the album, resulting in songs that twist & turn evolving organically with each contribution. From vocalist virtuoso Sofia Jernberg to drone experimentalist Oren Ambarchi & free form jazz star Mats Gustavsson, it’s an eclectic roll call, yet despite that, it’s a collection of pure pop melodies. On ‘Love Everything’, she lets melodies lead the way – the piano flowing with harmonies that emphasise Wallentin’s powerful & at times raw, honest voice. Power ballads are interrupted by a change of rhythms, Enchanting vocals turn into pulsating R’n’B, new opportunities are lurking behind every corner.
