Erik Odsell is an award winning Swedish songwriter and recording artist. For several years he has worked as a freelance musician behind many well-known Swedish artists and he has written music for artists both in Europe and the United States.
Erik’s new album, titled ‘Human,’ has a couple of familiar singles and quite a few new tracks. The flow of the album is seamless and smart and makes the entire project feel completely new. It is very consistent from an audio standpoint and the whole album feels focused.
In a very pop detour, ‘Human’ makes a fun contribution to the album. Title tracks have a lot of pressure to perform and be strong. This title track does exactly that. The song has a cheery, optimistic sound that is irresistible. The chorus will sweep you up, while the lyrics will keep you coming back for seconds. It is about how we as people have lost touch with our empathy and need to remember we are all on this journey together.
‘When We Were Beautiful’ touches on similar themes. It has a rock charged sound and nostalgic lyrics. The chorus is beautiful, and that fact is especially emphasized by Erik’s phenomenal singing. This is a strong contender for the best song on the album.
All in all, a powerful compilation of masterfully crafted tracks that will welcome you to the world of Erik Odsell with open arms.
