Bjorn Rydhog, I Don’t Wanna Be Alone Review
Bjorn Rydhog has teamed up with producer Johan Sigerud (JRSS) and co-writer Olof Gråhamn to expand his melodic indie-pop gift combined with electronica and beat-based characters. Moody progressions are blended with a modern retro sounds that has its beginnings in M83 and The Weeknd. The three carry a logical continuation of their previous collaboration, the single “Just to Be with You,” which was released in 2020 and was picked up by Swedish radio. Rydhog lyrics and ear for melodies are the driving force that is supported by deep sounds and slick dance beats. He is now releasing his single titled, “I Don’t Wanna Be Alone.”Bottom LineRydhog says this about “I Don’t Wanna Be Alone,” “The single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Alone’ shows an electronic direction I’m currently exploring. The tracks of the song were recorded separately at our different homes. I guess the creation process, as well as the theme of the song, reflect the distant and lonely, but also creative times we currently live in.” The production is patient in its development, and the singing is expressive with the lyrics. The beats provide support, and multi-layers fly in and out to keep the energy moving. The rise in the melody to falsetto gives an excellent lift and lightens the mood. The synth sounds are a perfect mix of today and yesterday. Rydhog’s use of texture is one of balance and building and relaxing from section to section. An ideal companion for today’s strange times, that’s the short of it!
