Victoria Bergsman is the former lead singer of the Swedish indieband The Concretes and calls her exciting solo project Taken By Trees. Earlier this evening she did a show at La Trastienda in Buenos Aires, a show arrangend by the Swedish institute. This was actually the first show out of four (the other three in Brazil later this week). If her voice sounds familiar it’s probably because she provided guest vocals for the Peter Bjorn and John single and super hit “Young Folks“. You find some of her music under the name Taken by Trees in the music room at Sweden.se. Victoria’s got one of the most characteristic voice in indie music right now, if you ask me.
Anyway the show was great and the crowd excited. After the gig her fans were eager to the get one of her merch t-shirts. I was hoping to put up a video sample from the show, but I’m just too tired. We’re leaving Buenos Aires early tomorrow morning. Hopefully leaving some new fans of Swedish music behind.
