(Sakert! is a band where I\'ve sung in Swedish. I also have a band where I sing in English - Hello Saferide.) We are lucky enough to have super sweet listeners in different countries and some of them wrote me, saying they were google translating "Facit" and babelfishing it and asking their grandfather with Norwegian ancestors for translation, and it all turned out very weird. "How sad", I thought, "that I can\'t just translate the songs." Which is when I thought: "Um, why don\'t I just translate the songs." "What if", I thought, "I translate them almost word by word, and it nearly turns into a third language, English words used in a Swedish way?" So I did, and we decided to record the songs and turn them into an album. During the process, the translated songs pretty much felt like new to us. Everything seemed different when sung in another language, and producer/guitar player Henrik Oja found some new sounds for them. About the album, then. Well, "Pa Engelska" mostly contains songs from "Facit", but it also features two tunes from our first album, Säkert!. The songs are about working too hard, loving too much, talking too little, growing up too slow in the northern parts of Sweden, and about fearing your country\'s politics is going somewhere where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. They\'re about crying at a wedding. They feature a lot of sad guitars and folk-ish violins. Every time I go abroad I meet someone who asks me about the famous Scandinavian melancholia and I guess this album pretty much embraces that. The songs are simple and sad. In a fun way, hopefully. Sakert! is a project based in Umea, Sweden. On tour and on album, we have been: Annika Norlin, Henrik Oja, Daniel Berglund, Mats Hammarstrom, Jakob Nystrom, Lovisa Nystrom, Frida Johansson, and some other people who occasionally help out. We\'ve been nominated to a lot of awards, like the Swedish Grammys, and won a few. We sold a lot of albums and we always try to make people cry when we play.
