“There’s something about a Tallest Man On Earth record that you’ll not get anywhere else: the vocal has a certain wistful quality that’s utterly distinctive.”
The Line of Best Fit
Born at the cusp of the new millennium in Stockholm, Esther Lennstrand discovered the perfect balance of rhythm and melody in the vibraphone during her teens. After a demo made its way into the ears of Jesper Kouthoofd (Teenage Engineering), she was invited to play at a festival in Denmark, joining the likes of Pontus Winnberg and Justin Vernon on stage with her vibraphone – a turning point within her musical career.
After releasing her debut EP in 2020 – Better Off Sleeping With A Parachute, in no time at all, Esther had found her way into the ears and hearts of an ever-expanding and devout following. Her sound – though constantly evolving, is rich with vintage synthesizers, punchy drum machines and haunting melody, establishing Esther as a leading figure in the world of electronic indie pop.
