Swedish singer and songwriter Ingrid Witt has long been a driving force behind the scenes for other artists, and two years ago, finally, made her solo debut. Attached below is her latest offering, Killing Me. A story about a destructive relationship and the struggles to move on, all wrapped in a warm and multi-layered pop shell.
The track comes off her new EP Everything Has To Be True which has a release date for November 24th via her own label Oh Mama. Reason enough for Team Poule to get behind this and hear what Ingrid is all about.
Where are you from, where did you grow up?

Who doesn't enjoy a fair bit of reverb and sunny riffs around this time of the year. Good thing then that the Surf Rock Is Dead stepped forward with a healthy new single entitled As If. A jangly little gem of indie surf (sic) rock that warm your cold heart right up.
