If there is a voice in the world that marries new classical and pop music more beautifully than David Åhlén’s, we’ve yet to hear it.
A five-track ep by the Swedish vocalist is set for release on Jivvär Records tomorrow under the name Watch and Pray. This is Åhlén’s sixth release.
There is a religiosity inherent in his work that’s not for everyone. But Åhlén’s not out to convert you. This is new music in the tradition of Arvo Pärt – gently inviting, on whichever level you choose.
