Sofia Talvik – Center of the Universe

Imagine yourself in a small rural village in Sweden. White-trimmed wooden houses that date back several hundred years are tucked in between the pines and birch tees next to the quiet lake where the sunlight glitters like gold on the gentle ripple. All around you, you can hear the buzzing of bumblebees, birds singing in the trees, and the sheep are grazing in a nearby pasture, surrounded by a hand tied willow fence.

This is Sulegång and it’s the place Sofia Talvik chose to record her new album ‘Center of the Universe’.

With a group of carefully selected musicians; Peyton Clifford and Drake Duffer on accordion, guitar, and mandolin (both hailing from North Carolina) and Janne Manninen on bass (from Sweden), she built up a studio in the living room of one of the old houses.

With poetic lyrics describing a day under the trees, surrounded by linden flowers, oaks, and the scent of wild strawberry blossom and white jasmine, the song captures a sense of timeless romance and nordic melancholy.

The song tells of a moment of closeness and silence, where everything that needed to be said has already been said. “Smultronblom och Vit Jasmin” is a tribute to those moments when the world feels distant and only the present exists, framed by the beauty of nature.
