The Origin and Impact of the Song on the Artist

Oliver Zach began writing ‘Någonstans’ in 2018, with the idea and goal of writing his music in Swedish this time, unlike his previous works. Therefore, the song became one of the first songs the artist wrote in his native language.During the process of creating the song, Oliver made his own home recording and has been listening to the song repeatedly since then. “It has been on my mind now and then, and it’s a song that I really like and have liked since I wrote it, so I felt that it was exactly the song I wanted to record and release.”

The artist would describe ‘Någonstans’ as a song with a calm and pleasant tempo that evokes pleasant feelings when listened to, and it has a bit of a “folksy” feel to it. This, while also having rock influences in the form of an electric guitar, which adds a stylish groove to the music.There are several different parts of the song with interesting musical elements that Oliver feels make it a pleasant song to just sit and listen to. “A lot is happening, but the song still feels airy, every now and then there’s a guitar riff or a chorus that makes it more exciting to listen to.”

The Sound and Favorite Parts of ‘Någonstans’

As a musician, Oliver Zach always appreciates going into the studio and recording new music that he has come up with himself, and putting time and energy into achieving a good sound. With this song in particular, there has been a lot of work, which has paid off in the end, as he found it extremely enjoyable to hear the final result when the song was finished. A significant part of the process with the song was adding and refining details. Oliver mentions, for example, that “the last things we fixed were the choruses and some percussion, when those parts were in place, it felt like we were done and satisfied. And the result turned out very well.”

His favorite parts of the song are the final chorus and outro, as he was particularly pleased with his vocals here, which elevates the song to express even more emotion and feeling. The bassline is also something he likes a little extra, describing it as quite simple but following the song very well and adding a lot of value. The same goes for the organ, as it similarly enhances the atmosphere in a clear and obvious way when it enters the sound picture.

What the artist found most enjoyable about ‘Någonstans’ was how the song has evolved and developed from initially consisting only of acoustic guitar and vocals to eventually being a release-ready production. He now looks forward to listening to the song when it’s released on various platforms and simultaneously hearing what others think of it.

He also says, “It will be especially exciting to listen to it in Dolby Atmos, as the transition from the stereo version to Atmos is like listening to a completely different song.”
