Om Taken By Trees
After a solid 11-year run with Swedish indie-pop collective the Concretes (perhaps most famous in the U.S. for their song "Say Something New," which Target used in several ads), lead singer and songwriter Victoria Bergsman struck out on her own in 2006. The result was Taken by Trees, Bergsman's one-woman-band -- plus a few VIP friends. Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John produced several tracks on T.B.T.'s debut, while P.B.J.'s John Eriksson, Electrelane's Verity Sussman and Andreas Soderstrom have cameos. Rough Trade released the album in 2007, and the U.S. release on Beggars Group followed a few months later.
