Citizen K: “Stichy’s Tune” (2009)

Klas Qvist’s tender acoustic “Stichy’s Tune” is one of the instrumental interludes among a varied and appealing set of 70’s-flavored folk pop.

Other songs bring to mind artists such as America or Gordon Lightfoot.

Citizen K: “For Citizen A” (2009)

Citizen K is Swede Klas Qvist, who mixes diverse 60’s and 70’s pop influences on his second record, on which he plays most of the instruments. Lead track “For Citizen A” is a heartrendingly fatalistic look at love and its potential for loss.

If anything we can’t foresee should blow this candle out

Please remember that I loved you for dear life

If Qvist is saying that to love is to risk the loss of something precious, he’d surely find agreement from a certain American songwriter he seems to have taken a cue from.
