Beardfish singer Sjoblom streams Unbendable Sleep

Beardfish singer Rikard Sjoblom has made his solo album available to stream in full.

The Unbendable Sleep is out today (February 10) and features Beardfish bassist Robert Hansen.

Sjoblom says: “I have been meaning to make The Unbendable Sleep for quite some time now so, when I finally had the opportunity, I had a great time recording it. It’s probably one of the most down-to-earth and honest albums I’ve ever done.

“I found myself singing about mirrors quite a lot and that’s also referring to just that – looking into the mirror and not recognising the person staring back at you.”

Sjoblom will promote the release on a mini UK tour with prog rock band Anima Mundi.

Beardfish’s last album was 2015’s +4626-COMFORTZONE.
