Stockholm based Temilia and the Passions have been playing together since 2008.
The band consists of five friends: Sofie, violinist; Jesper, drummer; Temilia, singer and songwriter; Fredrik, bass player; Flamman, guitarist.
Temilia’s characteristic voice wobbles between light and darkness as a reflection of the songs she performs.
We have been listening to ‘Where The Rainbows Meet’ :-
This has some box-top drums and thin filamental guitars.
Temilia’s blessed vocal gambols across this assortment of tidy sounds. There is no powerful rush.
The tone is bright-eyed and breath-catching. Sometimes the voice is honey-sweet high. Other times, it tumbles down. To lurk within the kindly idleness.
After a deep breath, a tender instrumental framework is formed.
Into this the flushed cheeks and blushed lips of the main-song settles into rhythmic chorus.
This undulates beautifully. Like a strong branch in the wings of the wind.
