MIMI TERRIS – FLYTTA HEMIFRÅN -> Release May 22th 2015

Two years ago Mimi Terris released her debut album ”They say it’s spring” , which got wonderful reviews by the critics. In her new album ”Flytta hemifrån” she brings new life to Swedish retro jazz, and shares a poetic and tragicomical view of life when it suddenly doesn’t go exactly according to plan. You can hear a subtle influence from icons such as Ulla Billquist, Alice Babs, Monica Zetterlund and Olle Adolphson, and Terris’ timbre moves with ease through swing, bossa nova, traditional music and blues brings life to a genre which for so long have been “slumbering” in our Swedish vinyl collections – as well as in our hearts. You can not help it but be swept away by the swingjazzy sensibility of this wonderful singer from Malmö- Mimi Terris and her compositions. A mature, elegant tone is heard in these songs, written 2014.

Terris tells an intriguing story with her timeless voice, a story that at first glance seems to be light and easy. But her lyrics draws the listener to a darker place – towards darkness and doubt.

– The well known and comical is the only release I have when life gets complicated. I love when comic and tragic meet in a comforting balance – like in a Chaplin movie, in Astrid Lindgren’s stories, or when Billie Holiday sings. On the surface it’s feelgood, but when you see it up close you notice all the nuances, Mimi Terris says.

With her ingenious lyrics Terris hooks the listener. The texts form a unique whole – a tribute to the ability to listen inwards.

– I wrote the songs in a short period of time, and first in retrospect I realise that I created a secret friend, an honest voice who led me through the dense forest of thought I found myself in. I wrote all the lyrics spontaneously in my diary. I admit it was a little precarious, as I later on brought my diary to all the rehearsals. I was terrified I would lose it.

Mimi Terris second album ”Flytta hemifrån” is to be released May 20th, and is followed by a tour in Sweden and Denmark.
