Swedish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Emil Svanängen makes records and plays shows under the enigmatic name of Loney Dear. In the early 2000s, in his Stockholm apartment studio, Svanängen made a name for himself by creating homemade CDrs with a minidisk microphone and a home computer, self-releasing albums which, by 2007, had pricked Sub Pop’s ears and they released ‘Loney Noir’. Two more albums - ‘Dear John’ and ‘Hall Music’ - followed, as did glowing reviews in The Guardian, BBC, Drowned in Sound and Pitchfork and earlier this year The Line of Best Fit went as far as calling him a “brilliant genius.”

Loney Dear has consistently crafted elegant, deeply stirring music, described by The Quietus as “the obsessive work of one man, albeit one that can sing with the vulnerable delicacy of an angel and makes bedroom recordings that sound like God’s own orchestra.” Multi-layered with instrumentation and Svanängen’s fragile yet irrepressible vocals, Loney Dear’s songs bloom with a sense of both intimacy and openness, at once uplifting and heartbreaking, tenacious yet tender.
