Fairytale endings are more often than not consigned to childrens' books and cartoons in this day and age, but the story of Emil and Caroline Jonsson – two of the brains behind ViVii – brings a little magic back to reality.
The first glimpse of their saga is “Siv (You and I)” – a Lykke Li-flecked escapade pumped plump with harmonies and zither. It's a bittersweet ode to the pains and joys that real life brings – you take the good with the bad and it reminds you that you're still alive – and it's dedicated to a special figure in the lives of Emil and Caroline: “We had this babysitter called Siv who looked after our kids for quite some while, but she passed away two years ago. She had an old zither she played in the church, and when she passed she left it to us. This is the first song we wrote on that zither – that's why it's called 'Siv (You and I)'. It's a hymn for her.”
