Björn Lindberg is the creative talent behind the solo project By Land and just ahead of the release of his debut album ‘I Shall Name You Björn’, the Swedish producer and songwriter drops new single ‘Anyone Could Be Us.’
For Björn, music offers an escape. He can create his own inner world, transforming cloying self-doubt and irrepressible thoughts into sounds. In doing so, creating something tangible from abstract ennui helps to lighten the load.
This is addressed on his latest track ‘Anyone Could Be Us.’ Combining 70s nostalgia with the crash of drums and the singer’s fiery vocals, the song acts as a powerful protest. In contrast, melliferous synth melodies flourish, adding a sense of colorfulness to the track. It’s Björn’s own way of breaking through the barrier of ideologies and stereotypes. Discussing the inspiration behind his new track, Björn says: “I’m raised in Sweden where you’re told you’re really not that special. Anyone could be me; anyone could be us.”
