For New Beginnings

For New Beginnings

VÖ-Datum16.10.2009

Es ist kalt draußen. Auch in die eigene Wohnung scheinen Minusgrade Einzug erhalten zu haben, zumindest fühlt es sich so an, wenn die Bettdecke weichen muss und die Arbeit ruft. Es friert einem, schnell 'nen Kaffee, eine Zigarettenlänge und es wird nicht besser. Alles scheint verloren, schließt man die Tür nach draußen hinter sich zu und die Muskeln sich krampfhaft zusammen ziehen. Was solls? MP3-Player an, Kopfhörer ins Ohr. Und plötzlich zeigt sich ein Lächeln und die Gliedmaßen fliegen unkontrolliert tanzend durch die frische Morgenluft. Die Kälte ist noch da, doch das Herz wurde soeben erwärmt. Vom dritten Friska Viljor-Streich For New Beginnings.

Kein Wunder, die Schweden kennen sich mit Kälte nunmal aus und wissen auch ein Rezept dagegen: wundervolle Popmusik. Im Falle der Band um Daniel Johansson und Joakim Sveningsson, die sich damit einen Namen gemacht haben, Hymnen für gebrochene Herzen zu verfassen, die sich vorerst mit Alkohol trösten, kommt ein gehöriger Schuss an Folklore und allerlei mehr oder weniger abstruses Instrumentarium (Glockenspiel, Ukelele, Mandoline, Sägen, Akkordeon etc.) noch dazu. Allerdings wollten sich die Beiden mit For New Beginnings etwas von diesem Image entfernen. Mit anderen Worten: diesmal wird nicht nur von Herzschmerz gesungen, sondern sie widmen sich verstärkt auch den größeren Themen Leben, im trügerischen Sinne (Daj Daj Die) oder Tod (If I Die Now). Glücklicherweise nicht ohne neben aller Melancholie, immer dieses Stück Hoffnung nicht zu vergessen, schließlich wollen wir erwärmt und nicht noch weiter am Boden getreten werden. Neben den schönen Texten, die in dem oft gebrochenen Englisch alleine schon Sympathiepunkte einbringen, stehen vor allem die Melodien und die Musik an sich Pate für diese Hoffnung. Dabei wollten Friska Viljor laut eigener Aussage weg von euphorischen Refrains hin zu mehr Ernsthaftigkeit. Letzteres ist ihnen durchaus gelungen. Ersteres zum Glück nicht. Egal ob Hibiskus Park, das im Refrain schlagartig von seiner Apathie ablässt, die Single Wohlwill oder People Are Getting Old. Selbst wenn sie vielleicht wollen: Die Schweden können einfach nicht anders als catchy Refrains zu schreiben. Sinnbildlich für die neue Ausrichtung ist da am ehesten Lakes Of Steep, das schwerer daher kommt und nicht so leicht zu verdauen ist. Lediglich gegen Ende geht Friska Viljor der Atem etwas aus. Ironischerweise gerade die Songs, bei denen man sich wieder eher Arm in Arm mit seinem besten Kumpel in der nächstbesten Kneipe sieht, völlig besoffen, sein Leid klagend, aber beim Refrain wohlwollend mitgrölt.

So gesehen ein perfekter Ausklang nach einem harten Arbeitstag im frisch einbrechenden Winter, der durch Friska Viljor doch wärmer wurde als gedacht. For New Beginnings macht die Schweden nicht zu einer komplett neuen Band. Die Platte wagt nur zaghaft ein paar neue Variationen und Töne anzuschlagen. Wenn aber das Ergebnis so klingt wie das hier, bleibt einem nichts anderes übrig als sich darüber zu freuen.
