I just didn't wanna believe in the limited view that I was offered anymore. So I began to change, and as I changed the world around me changed as well. Every time I learned something new a song came, to clarify that progress. UTM: How long did it take you to put it together? Klara: It didn't take long to write the songs, I've written more then a 100 songs these past coupe of years but since this has been a process of learning and growing I haven't rushed things. But you can say that it has taken approximately 1 year since I decided that this is going to be an EP. UTM: It's infused with island inspiration, where are you from again? (smile) Klara: Oh I was born far from any sweet sunny islands, In eastern Poland.
My family is a gene cocktail full of different spices and flavors, and I've lived in Sweden all my life. So I can't say that I identify with any specific culture, but this planet sure feels like home :) UTM: Why did you start your own label? Klara: Well, I have an eccentric partner, with whom I produce/write most of my songs, and he inspired me to dare to start my career without a record deal. I'm not saying that a record deal is bad but I just didn't wanna sit around and wait for some label to pick me up, so I started my own! This experience has been really stimulating for me, see without a budget you get more creative. I love learning new things everyday and having total control over my own career.
