It’s no secret that Sweden produces some of the world’s best pop - Yaeger’s latest track ‘Nosebleed’ sees no signs of that faltering.
An alumnus of the same music school as Robyn and Tove Lo, Yaeger has already made a considerable impact, emerging into pop with appearances at the Great Escape festival and being included in BBC Radio 1’s Best New Pop (twice).
Slow, plucked guitar falls over a drum loop, with subtle synth touches making for the most human of conversations between the singer and collaborator, London’s own alt-pop king Oscar Scheller (Charli XCX, Lily Allen).
Earnest, aching ‘Nosebleed’ immortalises lockdown separation in it’s most intimate form, taking lo-fi R&B soundscapes and framing them within Yaeger’s pop vision.
Through conversational interplay, the track looks back on the universal feelings of dissolving friendships and relationships you wish you could take back, an atmospheric backdrop to what could have been said.
