Backstrom curves into the sentiment of rustic country folk to drench us in a ruminative mist. ‘Journey’ is the debut single of Swedish artist and singer-songwriter, Bart Topher aka Backstrom. Listening to the track will make you think of long winding roads and blurry country sides. Timeless, both in style and rhythm, it is sure to orient you towards thought and introspection. It is a stringy composition with delightful banjo accents and mellow guitar riffs. They buoyantly hold and relish the crisp baritones of the artist. Lyrical brevity and the simplicity in the flow will perhaps attract comparisons to John Denver, The Byrds, and Hank Williams.
