CEO ‘WONDERLAND’ OUT TODAY IN THE UNITED STATES
Eric Berglund’s highly anticipated sophomore album as CEO, WONDERLAND, is out today. Spanning just 8 tracks but a kaleidoscope of emotions, the album is CEO in perfect form - “a chipper jaunt through a fantastical sonic realm with tinges of darkness at its fringes.” (Stereogum)
To date, the album has been peeked at via three tracks – the introductory ‘WHOREHOUSE’, the single ‘WONDERLAND’, and the New York Times-premiered ‘MIRAGE’. Last week, NPR streamed the full album via First Listen, describing the album as “a statement about isolation and loneliness and a delicate search for meaning”.
Take a dive into CEO’s WONDERLAND today.
“luxuriantly widescreen and eccentrically detail-rich” – Pitchfork
“…as demented and blissful as the best parts of once-popular ‘freak-folk’ movement, with Berglund leading a big top full of whining recorders, sweet-tooth synths and cackling samples.” – Billboard
“top-notch execution of the pretty but hostile Swedish pop sound he’s played such a critical role in shaping.” – The Fader
“As high-gloss, pleasure-seeking, and conscious of hip-hop tropes as something you might hear on the radio, but also as bizarre, insular, and tender-hearted as the most limited of indie pressings.” - Spin
