John Cloud MD & BOXER - BARK AT YOUR OWNER AB AND CMG Holding AB
T & The Rex signs to BARK AT YOUR OWNER!
Following the Managing Director of BARK AT YOUR OWNER being asked to do a lecture at a Music School in Kalmar, Sweden. John Cloud met up with T & The Rex aka Tilda Bergqvist and got a copy of her album, which he spent a lot of time listening..
John Cloud had plans to sign her but the pandemic hit and the world shut down. As things opened up, the MD sent Tilda a contract and went down to Kalmar to see her live and go through it with her. She has now signed and we will celebrate the signing when she comes up to Stockholm to get the famous shot of the artist punching the MD in the face. Until then we get to work on new songs and we are psyched about it as well.
T & The Rex is a Gothenburg-based bedroom pop artist who in 2021 released “one of this year’s best Swedish albums” according to Barometern (20210527). The album ‘Dream Less Dreamless’, which she made entirely herself at 18 years old, has been compared to names as First Aid Kit, Lucy Dacus and Lana Del Rey. T & The Rex would describe her music as ”dream pop influenced bedroom pop”, combining the simplicity of the later with dreamy synths.
In spring 2022 T & The Rex released two remixes from her album, made by Anders Mikäel Ekblad and Utet.
“In my early teens my brain was a high-speed engine. No matter how tired I was it could not be turned off, and I never stopped thinking. About life. About myself. About the people in my life. About the universe. Who am I? Is there anything behind the stars? Will everything be alright? To deal with the endless stream of questions and reflections I began to write. In my bedroom I wrote new songs every day, in my class notebooks I wrote even more, and the ideas and the inspiration just kept on coming. The years went by and I never stopped writing. The lyrics turned into dreams, and out of the dreams I grew.” Says Tilda Bergqvist and continues.
“My name is T & The Rex. A year ago, I was a teenager who never stopped dreaming. Today I have released a self-made album - 'Dream Less Dreamless', played at several national and international showcase festivals, and had the honor of meeting so many amazing people. My journey is far from over, and I hope you want to join me for the next step of this adventure.”
This year she has performed live the Stockholm Pride Festival and got great reviews for her remix singles.
