about

Every year Swedish artist Sofia Talvik writes a Christmas song to her fans. This year the title of the song is "Poem At Year's End"

Sofia Talvik asked her fans what they thought she should write about this year, and many wanted something political.

"To be honest that made me feel exhausted" says Sofia. ”There has been so much politics, and so many fights the last few years that the last thing I wanted to do was to write a political Christmas song. So instead I decided to write something that everyone could listen to and enjoy with an open heart, and a calm mind. This is nothing more than a poem about the end of the year, and that is why I called it ”Poem At Year’s End”. ”
- Sofia Talvik

The beautiful cello harmonies by David Floer, and soaring horns by Tim Fleming makes you think about 60’s folk songs, like the tunes of Nick Drake. Sofia’s angelic voice is bearing the tale about the passing of the year.

about

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk. She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more

Track Name: Poem At Year's End
The last of autumns leaves are falling from the tousles of your hair
Mama bear's returning to the darkness of her lair
Ice crystals are forming on your lashes and your lips
As if the year is but a cup and we are down to the last sips
Wrap me in the comfort of the warm and friendly
memories of spring
Of summer skies when snow and ice start covering everything
Let Christmas light the darkness and guide us through the night
Till we step out in the new year, new as the morning light
The world is white around us diamonds laying at our feet
Our shadows painted indigo fallen to the street
The trees are shivering naked in the wind, the flowers frozen into glass
The days keep moving forward, another year has passed
As the days keep moving forward another year will pass
