Djur & människor is Kristian Anttila’s fifth album since the debut Natta de mina (National) 2003. Recorded in a church in Dalsland. Produced, mixed and mastered by Kristian himself on Hisingen. Featuring Jukka Rintamäki from Silverbullit who participates and co-produces a couple of tracks on the album. A partnership which, according to Kristian ”unloaded a bunch of tight screws and relesased something previously held back.” It is an album that marks a springboard to something new in lyrics, tone and production. A creative comeback and new start at the same time.

This time we are moving in more dreamy soundscapes where both sender and receiver are desolved in the somewhat hallucinogenic lyrics. The foundation is still strong pop songs but with the core deeper buried. An output of the multilayer. An album with more colors. It sounds like space rock but still rock. Disco without glamor. Poetry without posturing. It sounds like Kristian is approaching his zenith, both as a lyricist, songwriter and producer. During the work he has listened a lot of contemporary hip-hop (”productions that are staring into the future”), British noisepop (”the way of hiding beautiful harmonies”) and read a lot of Swedish litterature (”adding smokescreens while beaming of authoritative ”). Briefly translated, Ghostface Killah, Outkast, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Pär Rådström and Bruno K Öijer if you need names.

An extremely compressed track record reveals a total of 13 P3-listed singles including 7 Track hits and a number one hit. Over 200 gigs from Borås to Hong Kong to Buenos Aires and back. And now it’s time to go again with more extra on everything, more wayward pop hits, more unforgettable live concerts. All of this delivered by one of our most complete and modern artists.
