Detektivbyrån – Hemvägen

Detektivbyrån have already parted ways, but they leave behind a small chunk of effort for us all to dine on. Hemvägen, taken from their debut album, titled ‘E18 Album’ – essentially a regurgitation of an EP release two years previous, is a four minute instrumental in the same form as Yann Tiersen’s Amélie outing.

Your instrument of choice is an accordion, and you’ve been requested to produce a Disney soundtrack – and so arrives Hemvägen. An open smattering of rapturous accordion, soon accompanied by muffled electronic keyboard riffs, builds until layered with a delicious twinkle of small bells – that same sound you hear from holiday trinkets. It’s fantasy music by traditional means. [Purchase.]
