FREDRIK FAGERLUND’s International (2005) will take you flying high and low, between shimmering guitar strings and hammering rock piano. Beautiful songs, a fantastic voice and that rock n’roll guitar to add an edge to it.
This solo debut shows that Fredrik Fagerlund (The Diamond Dogs, The Facer) is not only a skilled rock guitarist, but also a very talented songwriter.
“What makes the Swede more than just a footnote to his group is his love of pop melody. Imagine Carole King collaborating with Rod Stewart and Ron Wood and you’ll have a fair idea of what to expect from ‘Come On In’, ‘Let the Word Fly’ and the delicate ballad ‘This Summer’s Finest Rainy Day’. Fagerlund even lays the strings on thick ‘n’ heavy for ‘Tonight’ without losing his rock & roll credibility. Like brilliant siblings Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks combined into one person, Fagerlund puts some soda pop into whiskey rock without lessening the bitter taste.”
