Earlier in May we released our debut album “Nattflykt”. The album has been critically acclaimed in both Swedish and European media.
Now we’re releasing a Christmas song.
“Det är Jul” is a stand-alone single, a Christmas song that really reflects the anything but perfect 2020. A dark and lonely Christmas, a Christmas where you crawl out of your skin due to quarantine and social distancing.
“Det är Jul” is nothing like the merry and romantic Christmas songs we normally hear, but with Hansan’s special sound with lush layers of cello and vocals that catches your attention every time you hear them, this is still a given newcomer to all of this year’s Christmas playlists. Or as the lyrics in the song say… “It’s Christmas, can’t we just live in peace?”
“Nattflykt” inleds starkt med låten “Du Du Du” där de visar på sin enorma musikalitet och hur de använder sig av experimentella, nyskapande ljudbilder, harmonier och melodier. Sedan fortsätter skivan lika häpnadsväckande från start till slut och lyssnaren dras in i berättelserna och den sköra känslan. Man kan inte undgå att vilja fortsätta lyssna.”
We are excited to show of our new video for the song “Fjärilsvärld” tonight at 20:00 European time.
Thank you to Tanzzentrale Leipzig and all the wonderful dancers.
Dancers: Luzi Madrid Villanueva, Cecilia Nesler, Fine Saelzter, Franzi Becker, Hanna Jacobi, Isabella Grundei, Lara Wunch. Dancers filmed by: Lisa Hofman, Emma Kleiner, Konstantin Tsakalidis, Lara Wunch.

The day is here! We just released our debut album “Nattflykt” on all major platforms.
“Nattflykt” is self-composed, and will make you think of everything from Jazz to old traditional folk songs. The inspiration comes from the raging seas and the Swedish magical forests.
To make the whole album varied and exciting with just vocals and cello as the only components, we have experimented with mould-breaking arrangements and chord changes that pick elements from both classical chamber music to jazzy grooves. A fifth string on the cello increases the depth of the soundscape and gives it an extra character of bass, and the different layers convey the feeling of an entire orchestra.
Modern yet traditional, light yet heavy – Hansan makes their own niche in Nordic Folk Music.
The album is also available on CD and can be ordered directly form us here:
“Sjung min lilla näktergal” is a song about the difficult journey from a war ravaged country to peace – both mentally and physically.
With today’s debates about closed or open borders, about walls and cages, it’s even more important to tell this story. A story about the people that came to a new country and helped to build it. A story about freedom. A story about a new chance. Sing – until the song is heard.
