Yesterday was all my fault. People are the wilderness. Can't believe I'm still here looking for answers, wherever you go. Yesterday was all night long, buried in a rumbling pace. Do they know I'm already afraid to go? I got so much to live for. I'm back on my feet, but you should know, the wound didn't heal right. Yesterday, all your friends could see how you unveiled my pocket soul, that drowns for you. Yesterday, I found my guy to the ground, to the floor, to the pain, to the course. In my home town, they have another hierarchy of needs. I wound up losing all my money. She sure is my worthy opponent. I can tell she's already afraid to go. Friend of friends, most of the time I don't know whether I'm going up or down. After all years, it feels like I've only started. Yesterday, all the world could see how you found my pocket soul, that drowns for you. I got so much to live for and I'm back on my feet, but you should know, the wound didn't heal right. Yesterday, all your friends could see how you found my pocket soul, that drowns for you.

about

The Swedish singer-songwriter I’m Kingfisher returns with new album The Past Has Begun, the follow-up to the acclaimed 2018 LP Transit which saw him receive some of the strongest reviews of his career while being featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered and KEXP’s Song of the Day, while sharing the stage with the likes of Kevin Morby, Courtney Marie Andrews and Damien Jurado.

One of Scandinavia’s hidden treasures, returned to the country and Americana that originally inspired him to start his artistic career, citing records by Courtney Marie Andrews and Dwight Yoakam especially as two of the main inspirations for The Past Has Begun, while penning some of his strongest work yet. Featuring guest appearances from the likes of Slowgold and Damien Jurado guitarist Josh Gordon, The Past Has Begun is an album about ageing, and the bittersweet nature of memory - romantic yet resigned, hopeful but drenched in melancholy.
