About Sibille Attar
After five years of silence, Sibille Attar is finally back with new music. Her new EP Paloma’s Hand is set to arrive on April 27 via PNKSLM Recordings, featuring 6 tracks of magically alluring pop music where darkness and light meets, and it is is also the sequel to her acclaimed debut album Sleepyhead. Attar made her debut as a solo artist in 2012 with the EP The Flower’s Bed after a couple of active years in the Swedish music scene and quickly became one of Sweden’s most renowned artists.
The follow-up, her debut album Sleepyhead, arrived in February 2013 via Stranded Records to critical acclaim, gaining her a Swedish Grammy nomination, as well as attention from international publications such as Pitchfork, Stereogum and Noisey. After a year of constant touring, Sibille Attar retreated from the spotlight and has only been heard on a few collaborations since, until now.
Paloma’s Hand is the result of a long period of questioning herself, a collection of tracks that came after losing her confidence and a general disillusion of the existence of being a music maker, it it still a clear continuation of what she started with Sleepyhead. Dark yet poppy, the album is written and produced by Sibille herself (with Petter Granberg as co-producer on a track) and the definite proof that Sibille Attar is one of the most interesting musician Sweden has to offer.
