Sanakirjan Takana

Sanakirjan takana is Horseface’s second full length album. It is mixed and co-produced by Daniel Fagerström (Viagra Boys, Jenny Wilson etc.) and split-released by the labels Kopotikop, Joteskii groteskii and Sing a Song Fighter.

Horseface plays rhythmic post punk, combining drum machines with acoustic drums and percussion. The band tries to apply the openness and experimentalism from the DIY explosion of the early eighties with contemporary influences and perspectives.

The resulting sound is oozing with effects from Fagerström’s dubwise production. Melodic motifs slowly evolve while the steady pulse of the bass anchors the songs. The vocals are in Finnish, Sweden’s largest minority language.

The title of the record, Sanakirjan takana, means “behind the dictionary”. It alludes to a short story written by Hanna’s late mother, found after her untimely passing. The short story served as an inspiration for the lyrical theme of the title track and the record overall (a pack of cigarettes hidden behind the dictionary).

Released by Kopotikop, Joteskii groteskii and Sing a Song Fighter with support from the Swedish Arts Council
