Karin My is one of Sweden’s secret weapons.
The Gothenburg-based composer and multi-instrumentalist has worked with a number of the country’s leading artists, including Twice a Man and Robert Enforsen. She appeared on two of the tracks for Heresy, the Rational Youth tribute album produced by Cold War Night Life.
She has now revealed her new single. “The Silence” features the pulsing, filtered sounds of a Kord MS20 and a soaring vocal line. It is elegant and delicate, while thunderingly electronic when the MS20 pushes higher in the mix. Using the kind of tension heard in Madonna’s best work with William Orbit, “The Silence” is as complex as the Berman film with which it shares a title.
