“This is a song full of dissonances, describing the frustration of trying hard and not seeing results,” said annasara. “It’s an ongoing piano with the repeating A key note, violins and a dark bass. Middle part is reflective with long and ringing contemplating chords.”
annasara is Annasara Lundgren. She is a Malmö-based singer/songwriter and classically trained violinist and composer. Her music invites the listener to a world of acoustic instruments, with a captivating voice and piano in the spotlight.
The style can be comparable to Nils Frahm and Agnes Obel, with echoes from classical composers like Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy; suggestive and undulating, from beginning to end. Wispy pronouncement, both similes of not and want – catapulting and down-to-earth.

Track 7: "I wish I knew" This is probably the darkest song on the album with lots of dissonances and lyrics of frustration. Trying out things, don't understand, don't see and don't thrive. I wrote it a couple of years ago actually and made one version on a demo EP called therapy. First time sung "i wish i knew" (why) landing on a Eflat, second time "i wish i knew" (what) landing on my darling C major (in this videoclip), and last time, where the meaning is different, "there is someone deep inside I wish I knew", ending the song on D major. I might do a "walk through"-video on this song too, I guess. Find the whole song on my spotify profile (link in bio) or in my stories.
