Jens Lekman

Jens Lekman is not just a hopelessly romantic Swedish musican but also on the Top15- List of  ‘Sexiest Man of Sweden’. His music is guitar-based pop with heavy use of samples and strings, with lyrics that are often witty, romantic, and melancholic. Lekman’s lyrics are inviting us to to look closer at the world around us, to appreciate the beauty when it’s both in and out of context. Even though it sometimes sounds too dramatic and heartbroken, he mostly manages to make you smile by the end of the song.

Before heading the mainstage at Immergut Festival, we met Jens in his romantically decorated backstage trailer to talk about festivals and to record an acoustic version of his song ‘I Know What Love Isn’t’.
