Available now is a brand new video from the Swedish synthwave artist Anna Öberg. “Handen eller hjärtat” is taken from the recently released album “Varelser inuti”, the third solo album by Öberg. The material was produced by Charles Storm as usual.
The sound on this album is again constructed around modern soundscapes with the help of analogue synths from the 80s. Added to that are the singer’s Swedish lyrics.
