Cajsa Siik is a Swedish artist hailing all the way from Stockholm. Her music has already been included in various American shows, such as Criminal Minds, The Michael J Fox Show, Awkward, Degrassi and Ravenswood. She also recently teamed up with Tiger Lou producer Rolf Klinth, and Calle Ekerstam in order to work on and co-produce her latest album “Contra”, which got support from the likes of NME, Clash, Vice, Indie Shuffle, The Line of Best Fit, USA Today and numerous blogs around the world, as well as making it into the playlists of BBC6 Music, BBC2 and Amazing Radio.
The “Contra” album is a great example of bringing the essence of art-pop to its full notion and restlessness. Cajsa Siik knows exactly how remain sonically insatiable whilst giving her listerners a solid foothild. Her soft vocals are a clear contrast to the enigmatic and textured arrangements. They fit perfectly with the minimalistic orchestration that supoorts her every word from the very first bar.
“Follow You Down” is the first out of three completely new singles released this spring, and it has previously been heard in Criminal Minds and as a bonus track on the Noisey/Vice premiere stream of “Contra”.
Cajsa on the track: “It’s about the time. It takes for you to listen to your own beat. It’s about trusting and getting to know the fear and the guts. To learn how to trust. It’s about looking at your youth with the oldest of eyes. Seeing things in different lights. Getting to know the weigh of the past that made us grow way to fast.”
