Tiny Fighter presenting their latest release, ‘You Said To Me’
After racking up 1 million views on YouTube, over 700000 Spotify streams and successful tours through the US, Canada and Europe, Sweden’s Tiny Fighter were poised for a small but significant slice of world domination. But then came COVID, effectively putting the brakes on the whole machine. Faced with an extended period of no touring, a fan-campaign led by a collection of locked-down Tiny Fighter supporters began to follow-up the band’s celebrated Loft Sessions (Live in New York) album. The problem – there was no live music, much less any touring. The solution – record a completely new record combining brand new songs with re-interpretations of some of their fan-favourites. And thus Rewind was born.
Different times means different methods. The recording sessions for Rewind saw the band bring in an absolute sack full of new instruments including mandolins, dobro, trumpets, flugelhorns, pedal steel and drum machines. And in perhaps what is their most Scandinavian moment to date, Tiny Fighter recorded vocals in the studio sauna (arguably on account of both the excellent sound-proofing and bonus warmth).
The album again sees Tiny Fighter team up Swedish metal legend and multi-Grammy award winning producer Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Opeth, Soilwork, Degrade). The cover artwork also features a collaboration with renowned northern Swedish visual artist Sandra Wasara-Hammare (instagram: veden_).
