feeble show up for love with their new single I Am Here — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Fashioned from glistening guitars and keyboards, a simple low-impact backbeat and quietly intense vocals that gently hit the sweet spot between psychedelic dream-pop and indie-folk, the Swedish indie outfit’s latest release is a plaintive tale of unrequited love that will ring true to anyone who’s ever had a heartbreak.
“The song is about one-sided love and how you try to gain the one you love’s attention and affection by giving her space,” explains Stefan Ekenberg, the mastermind behind feeble. “But that obviously only works if she likes you back. (Otherwise) you end up last in line.”
Ekenberg is second to no one on the Swedish scene. Based outside Gothenburg, he has played in several bands, mostly guitars and drums, but also vocals. feeble were born during the 1990s and started as a trip hop-project. Between 2010 and 2020 they disappeared from the scene, but were reborn in 2020 as an acoustic project with the singles Heartland, A Few Minutes More and What If. Ekenberg and feeble have continued to evolve, incorporating influences from the past along with more modern sounds — notably the influence of singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers, Bon Iver).
