THINKING WITH THE HEART
A romantic theatricality permeates Day Felice’s chamber/art pop, a Swedish band founded by singer-songwriter and actress Linnéa Feline Lindström. Their love for colorful, cinematic emotional contrasts reveals a wide range of influences stretching from last century’s iconic singer-songwriters to theatrical rock (David Bowie, The Ark).
Linnéa Feline is one of those personalities where art precedes the medium. Born in Borås to a writer father, her exposure to the public eye has been established through acting. After kick-starting her career in Sweden through an appearance in “Blå Ögon” (2014), she went on to play Sigurd on HBO’s “Vikings” (2016). She made her debut on Sweden’s national stage (Dramaten) as a lead role in “Maktens Diskreta Charm” (2022), following an acclaimed tour of Jesus Christ Superstar (2022) alongside musical stars Peter Jöback and Ola Salo. After receiving considerable praise for her portrayal of the character “Hannas”, she was invited to perform as Day Felice on the reunion tour of Swedish glam staple “The Ark” (2022).
The Gothenburg-based quintet was conceived in 2018, soon after Lindström got signed to Rexius Records. She had been training as a pianist since childhood and participating in various ensembles, but her initial releases with the label in 2019 presented her as a solo artist. The debut single “Autumn” earned her a feature on prominent Swedish blog Popmuzik and a warm reception among European audiences.
The band's future pianist happened to be her roommate. Along came the other members of the ensemble, all of them based in one of Sweden's most musically rich cities. They’ve been performing together since 2019, but their single “Are We Ever” (2020) was their first official release as a band.
The years of Lindström’s piano training are still very present in their songs, characterized by a great emphasis on dramatic arrangements and romantic harmony. But however intricate this instrumental approach might sound, it’s balanced with simple, memorable melodies. A lyrical combination of youthful energy with adult cynicism sets Day Felice apart from similar acts.
Their second album "Ashes" was released on May 14th, 2021.
As an actress, Linnéa Lindström has been seen prominently in series such as Vikings (MGM/History Channel) and Blue Eyes (SVT). She is represented by PMJ Artistgruppen.
