I have been wanting to write about Hajen for a while... but i don't know much about her. Hajen aka Amanda Bergman is not very interested in talking about herself. But does it matter? No. The music speaks for it self.
Amanda has been hyped on blogs and music sites for about a year now and in August she made a legendary performance during the Way out West festival in Gothenburg [which im very sorry i missed]. Since then people can't stop talking about her. A new female vocalist, another young hope. And who doesn't want more? She makes wonderful piano ballads and has a voice filled with beautiful whiskey pain.
Her biggest Myspace hit has been the song Scapegoat and now she works on more music that is set to be released before the year has ended. It will an EP of her own and a couple of song for Bröderna Lindgrens second album with songs for children that adults can enjoy too.
EDIT: Now i have figured out why i like this girl so much. It's because she reminds me of Cat Power, but a young Swedish version. Great!
Hajen is touring in Europe this autumn, check out dates on her Myspace. You can also listen to a few of her songs on Spotify and she has three songs as free downloads on last.fm.
