You might have caught our interview for Yaeger’s last release ‘Dopamine High’, if you did then you’ll know that we’re a big fan of the Sweden-based songwriter’s sound. Her new single ‘I Need a:’ comes courtesy of the same producer, with Mona
Khoshoi crafting the aural landscape – alongside Kerstin Ljungström. It’s another piece of raw, alt-pop; Yaeger’s effervescent melodies drift along a furtive beat, full of magnetic percussion and buttery instrumentation.
“I usually find inspiration in things that happen around me, and now Sweden happened to be in the middle of a catastrophe, which caused a lot of emotion and concern around the country. So I guess I wrote ‘I need a:’, as a reflection of our time, our habits, and a registration of the reactions from the forest fires. People are tired of reading articles about the environment going to hell, because we have a big appetite and we want to be fed, not questioned. So in ‘I need a’, I’m pretty much acknowledging the fact that I’m no different to any other consumer, but questioning why.” – Yaeger
