    Taken By Trees' Victoria Bergsman lucked into quite a break when she left the Scandinavian pop group the Concretes, a band she had led for three albums with only cult success: her first post-Concretes project was her guest vocal and whistling on Peter, Bjorn and John's hit single "Young Folks." With the final two-thirds of that trio helping with production and instrumental duties, the debut album by Bergsman's new project, OPEN FIELD, has a similarly beguiling, upbeat, and slightly retro feel, taking the best of 1960s sunshine pop and melding it with cool Nordic electronica. Bergsman effortlessly moves from strength to strength throughout.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.94) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[S]oft, stripped-down Swedish cafe folk....It's mostly Bergman's frail voice, acoustic guitar or piano, with flourishes like the xylophone..."
    Spin (p.125) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Bergsman's new work has an introspective solitude, wisps of mandolin, sparse coils of marimba, all-thumbs pianos, drunken xylophone."
    Uncut (p.113) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "An obsession with the healing power of trees, expressed in Japanese-style, Zen chamber-music, counters lyrics of depression and heartache."
    Magnet (p.108) - "The result is serene, breathtaking and transportive....Stark but not empty, OPEN FIELD could induce you to take a secluded stroll through the woods."
