”Treasure in mind” is about love,” said RAKEL about her dramatic and unique single. “Most people can agree that love is the most important thing we have. I meet a lot of people who follow their heart, regardless how things will turn out, but I also meet the ones that seems to have lost control completely. These people devote their lives to the biggest fraud in the history of mankind: the fraud of seeking confirmation from the world around them. I think it is an obligation we all have in life. To let our love express itself.”
Those words are from an artist who, we deem as a firebrand. A person who is here, for the now. From only the words expressed in her songs, the vibe of the steely interior of her positions, come true to life.
The 24 year old is Julia Johansson, and the Åre, Sweden native, slings the norm out the door with the delicious hooks and twists presented in this single ‘Treasure In Mind’.
Pop and indie, electro and synth, the single demonstrates some of the powers of Rakel’s personality and character of the kind of songs she constructs. The delicate traverses of syllables and candy coated sounds, bounce with delight and sheen above the clouds, and reflect with deference.
Depth and completeness comes to mind, as Rakel’s energetic and empathetic vocals shape the world for us to be wrapped in.
