Tvärvägen - Pingvinvärmen

Tvärvägen is the brainchild of Henrik Ohberg, he is a one man band, making charming eclectic indie folk pop. He's also a part of Swedish indie folk band Ironville, so if he gets too lonesome, whilst inventing tunes in his cabin, he can hang out with those guys. I originally blogged a piece on his work here back in 2008, where I described his music as "a sound akin to 'An Old Curiosity Shop' being run by Noggin the Nog in a fading seaside town"

He has produced another lovely illustrated animated video for the song Pingvinvärmen and according to the blurb It's about a girl in a spacesuit, something that looks a little like a polar bear and some rolling creatures and a few birds. The title of the song translates into something along the lines of "The warmth of penguins" and I suggest you warm the cockles of your heart by checking this out.

Tvärvägen - Pingvinvärmen - The song is taken from the debut 2008 album 'Sånger från Tvärvägen' released on the Knoppar record label buy it here
