Promise And The Monster
Having established herself as one of Sweden’s most esoteric, mesmerising songwriters, with critical acclaim from Uncut, Mojo, Clash and Pitchfork, and shows with the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, Mark Kozelek and Jens Lekman, Promise and the Monster (aka Billie Lindahl) has signed to Icons Creating Evil Art.
Billie’s musical education started young, playing Swedish folk on the cello at school by day and recording mix tapes by night. She became fascinated with Nick Drake, Kaki King and Elliot Smith, writing her debut EP Antarktis and first album Transparent Knives at the age of 18, having been picked up by Imperial Recordings. With a father playing Country bands and mother into eclectic mix of jazz and alternative rock, from day one her tastes were always going to be fluid.
