“Sweden’s next great troubadour and folk singer has landed. Malin Foxdal stands here completely straightforward and independent in her artistry.”
Alexander Agrell - Sydsvenskan.
“I don’t know how it happens, but by the end one is spellbound. Both by the music and the lyrics, which are carried by Foxdal’s broad register as a singer. She belongs to the kind that know how to frame a story. Two words are all it takes, then you to want to hear what happens next. She is at her best when she approaches the darkness in the folk song tradition. Broken hearts. Grief. Death. She takes the genre to a whole new level by weaving Swedishness together with blues, bluegrass and American folk music.”
Jesper Bengtsson, Eskilstuna Kuriren
“Her cross-over feels so self-evident, consummate and natural. In addition to this, Malin has explored and found her own style. Particularly praiseworthy is the often severe and always interesting treatment of the song’s harmony. Malin Foxdal’s voice, one of the best I know of in Swedish folk music today, has an impressive breadth. Clear deep notes, high notes often adorned with a slight rasp, perfect intonation, very varied dynamics, astounding ease and a natural inclination for folk music interpretations make her worth listening to regardless of context.”
Petter Terenius - Folkmusik & Dans
