The beginning moments of Molly Nilsson’s second album Follow The Light now seem like the start of a personal mythology that was to reach further than she could have imagined. Few contemporary artists have so seeped into the underground pop psyche than the Stockholm-born songwriter. After releasing her debut These Things Take Time on hand-made CDrs, Nilsson’s follow up was a leap in scope and ambition. Of course, the personal takes on a tumultuous life in Berlin and the journeys to and from it inform the songs as before, but there’s a growing maturity in the songwriting in evidence. Truth, a synth pop song that sees Nilsson exploring the upper and lower registers of her voice, feels like a lost chart hit from the mid 80s. I Hope You Sleep At Night, a vitriolic lover’s admonishment gives way to one of Nilsson’s most popular songs: I’m Still Wearing His Jacket.

Nilsson Sings Newman is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson, released in February 1970 on RCA Victor. It features songs written by Randy Newman. Recorded over six weeks in late 1969, the album showcases Nilsson's voice multi-tracked in layers of tone and harmony. Its arrangements are otherwise spare, with most of the instrumentation provided by Newman on piano.

Per Nilsson is a Swedish guitarist and producer. He is best known as one of the founding members of the melodic death metal/progressive metal band Scar Symmetry and as the guitarist for the Swedish progressive rock group Kaipa. As of June 2017 he is also the interim lead guitarist for Meshuggah, replacing Fredrik Thordendal, who went on hiatus. In January 2013, Guitar Messenger released a guitar instructional DVD with Per called Scar Guitar.

It’s a gloomy thought, but she sings it tenderly, like she’s reminiscing about drunken college weekends instead of a civilization’s last days before implosion. On Twenty Twenty, Nilsson dreams about endings with faith in nothing.

The synth pop auteur on how her latest album was nearly her last, the allure of internet anonymity, and the loneliness of machines. Titled Zenith, it moves Nilsson's searing, poetic synth pop forward in surprising directions. Her intricate tales of love, beauty, loneliness and joy remain as emotive as ever, but this time her musical palette has expanded.
