"Multi instrumentalist from the wilds of Sweden shows us there's more than death metal up there as she fuses singer/songwriter with jazz vocal for an intimate experience that you can relate to even if you haven't had a load of worldly experiences at a young age like she has.

`Through´ ; that relationship that you know is not good for you but you keep anyway because you are afraid what will happen to the other person if it ends. Promises made, to have and to hold, even through times when you were told to be “through” . The feeling of having given your all, and being nothing, yet everything , as you are free. This is what birthed `Through´ . A pop meets r-n-b meets electronic dance music track featuring fusion master guitarist Oz Noy , produced by Larsdotter herself along with Xavier Taplin (TOTO , Prince) and Tony Austin .
