VIVII

London Calling 2017, Saturday

VIVII

ViVii consists of the love couple Emil and Caroline Jonsson from Gothenburg, Sweden. The first glimpse of their musical saga is “Siv (You & I)” – a Lykke Li-flecked escapade pumped plump with harmonies and zither. It’s a bittersweet ode to the pains and joys that real life brings – you take the good with the bad and it reminds you that you’re still alive – and it’s dedicated to a special figure in the lives of Emil and Caroline: “We had this babysitter called Siv who looked after our kids for quite some while, but she passed away two years ago. She had an old zither she played in the church, and when she passed she left it to us. This is the first song we wrote on that zither – that’s why it’s called ‘Siv (You & I)’. It’s a hymn for her.”

ViVii speelt op London Calling op 26 en 27 oktober in Paradiso in Amsterdam.
