LAMB Session: Amanda Fondell

Swedish Idol sets sight on US Soil

July 28th, 2017
Lex Voight

Sweden’s Amanda Fondell has been a mover and shaker since winning Swedish Idol’s Eighth Series back in 2011. Six years later, shes turning her eyes towards the states, looking to dominate in the pop/soul/electro market much the same way fellow countryman Robyn has for some time. Amanda is sweet, her answers are unpolished and endearingly somewhat lost in translation, and though her frustration with the language is clear, clearer still is her good-natured smile and passion for her work.

Video: Matt Pond PA performs in a living room

Here’s proof of the band’s intimacy and magic

Last week, we reported on Matt Pond PA performing a last minute set in a living room in a townhouse in Burbank, CA. Now we’re here a week later reporting on that experience again – this time with video evidence and further proof that the band is magical.

The video below is twenty minutes of an hour-long set that captures five songs performed over a period of the band’s career, stripped back with violin, cello, guiatrs, and vocals performed by Pond, Sean Alpay, and Mel GuĂ©rison.

Matt Pond PA has been utilizing these living room sessions as an intimate way to connect with fans and to pull back the instrumentation to reveal the true songwriting nature of the tunes that would ordinarily be pronounced in larger settings. This was a unique opportunity, especially for fans on the West Coast who have been craving both the band’s presence in the area as well as in these settings.

If you were one of the lucky 25 to have witnessed it, this is a great reminder of this wonderful set. For the rest of you, this is a wonderful treat. Keep on the lookout in a town near you where they might pop-on in a living room to perform some songs, just because.

His latest album Winter Lives is available now.
