To my surprise, I just found a Youtube video of Orphan Songs playing “What you want is lost” live at the album launch party last year. I had no idea the clip was there, but I know who made it: my creative friend Martin Sjölander who was the driving force behind the alternative pop music scene in Kalmar until he moved away. He also hosted the party with his club Popidyll.
It’s almost exactly a year ago the debut was released, but we couldn’t have the show until November. That was partly because it was tough finding a date close to the album release, but I also needed time to get a band together and rehearse. All my former bandmates were scattered and I was in a brand new part of the country where I didn’t know any musicians. However, things tend to fall into place if you let them. Finding a drummer was easy, I just had to ask Lulla. And she knew a guy called Martin at work, who turned out to be an excellent guitar and bass player. Despite the fact that the three of us had never played together before and that we only rehearsed five or six times before the show, I think it all went very well.
