Swedish Duo Markus Ernehed & Fredrik Björns released their latest single “A Song for Jimmy” on November 14th. After hearing the first few pensive notes of the Country track, there was little doubt that the soundscape would leave me sharing the same melancholy which the tonality offered.
Nothing could quite prepare me for how morose A Song for Jimmy would be. Markus Ernehed & Fredrik Björns tackled the raw issue of domestic abuse and narratively explored the deep wounding impact of domestic abuse on both women and children.
A Song for Jimmy deserves to go viral. Partly due to the stunning feel of the delicate single. But mainly because millions of women who have experienced domestic abuse will find plenty of comfort in this deeply empathetic single which feels like an ode to the strength of femininity.
